Cornea, Anterior Segment and Refractive Surgery Fellowship Alumni Testimonials


What some of our graduates say:


“The Cornea, Anterior Segment and Refractive Surgery Fellowship at Baylor must be the most comprehensive fellowship in the country and for me was the very best place I could have trained.  When I was interviewing for fellowships. I visited 14 fellowships and I found many good ones.  However, only at Baylor did I find a fellowship that offered in-depth exposure to the full breadth of skills I wanted to master. . . Now in private practice, I am so grateful to my friends there, the cornea faculty at Baylor, for the training in cornea/refractive/anterior segment/ocular surface disease which allowed me to practice with confidence from day one.”

“My fellowship at Baylor provided me everything I could have imagined I needed for fellowship training and then a lot more. The volume, wide array of pathology and balance of autonomy and supervision helped me to develop the skillset and confidence I needed to transition into a busy academic practice immediately after completion.  The fellowship mentors are truly gifted and caring teachers dedicated to shaping fellows into clinicians and surgeons who are comfortable with any pathology of the anterior segment including all varieties of cornea, cataract and refractive surgery. I made life-long connections with mentors and friends who have continued to shape and guide my career. “

“It’s rare to find a fellowship that allows you to really see the total breadth of external disease to anterior segment surgery. From stem cell transplants to cornea surgery to anterior segment reconstruction, and everything in between, the Baylor fellowship prepared me for the complex cases seen in academic medicine and unexpected surgical challenges often encountered during international medical mission trips.”

“For decades, the cornea, refractive, and anterior segment fellowship at Baylor has produced experts that have saved and enhanced vision all over the globe. You want to call yourself an alumnus or alumna of this elite fellowship family....”
