Anterior Segment Fellowship

 

The CODET Fellowship

A Fellowship in the field of Medicine is a formal training program for doctors that have completed a residency (for example, in Ophthalmology) and is considered a subspecialist program. The subspecialty is the highest degree in medicine and is a superior degree than a specialist. To obtain the subspecialist degree is not easy, which is why it is considered a great distinction when a Fellowship is earned.

Dr. Chayet founded the Fellowship program at CODET Vision Institute in 1994. To date, more than 80 ophthalmologists from Mexico, Latin America, and other parts of the world have graduated from this program in different ophthalmic subspecialties, such as Cataract and Refractive Surgery, Cornea, Retina, Glaucoma, among others. Fellows stay at CODET Vision Institute for up to two years, perfecting their skills previously obtained at residency programs and learning new abilities at clinical, surgical, and research levels. The Fellowship is lead by all of the various Medical Department Heads at CODET Vision Institute.

Once again, through this amazing feet, CODET demonstrates its innovative and pioneering spirit with the Fellowship program, unique in many respects in Mexico and Latin America.
