Dr. Arturo Chayet, founder of Tijuana-based CODET Vision Institute, introduced this medical fellowship program in 1994. Since then, the prestigious program has trained nearly 100+ ophthalmologists from Mexico, Latin America, the United States, and elsewhere.
The CODET Fellowship is open to doctors who have completed their residency in ophthalmology and seek to further their expertise in a subspecialty field such as:
During their one- or two-year term fellowship, these doctors-in-training learn under the expert medical team at CODET. While here, fellows perform an extensive number of state-of-the-art procedures and gain hands-on experience with the most modern diagnostic equipment and devices, many of these technologies unique and exclusive to the CODET Vision Institute experience.
After graduation, our fellows bring CODET’s technology and level of care to vision care facilities across Latin America and beyond. And, sometimes, they join the surgical team at CODET.
What to Expect: A Look at the CODET Fellowship
Participate in weekly theory-based academic sessions to further your knowledge in your subspecialty, plus read, analyze, and discuss the latest in ophthalmology literature and industry developments.
Gain plenty of clinical and surgical experience as you consult with patients in our private practice and through our Foundation, Fundación CODET. Observe and perform hundreds of surgeries and procedures during your fellowship.
Join our medical team in investigative research studies and participate in clinical trials, which gives you the opportunity to help advance ophthalmic innovation and even publish your own work in a peer-reviewed journal.
