Global Ophthalmology Fellowship

The Jerome Jacobson International Program at the Kellogg Eye Center offers a 1 to 2-year fellowship focused on training future leaders in academic global ophthalmology. The KECIO fellowship is customized to meet the career goals of fellows, including in service, clinical/epidemiological research, operations research, and clinical and research capacity building. An emphasis of the program is on fostering reciprocal and culturally competent relationships with diverse global partners. Fellows will collaborate with our long-term partners locally and in other countries, including Burundi, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Jamaica, and Kenya. Our fellows join an active and dynamic community of global health scholars at the University of Michigan, including from the Medical School, School of Public Health, Business, Engineering, and Institute for Social Research. Fellows have the option to take summer courses in the School of Public Health or to spend an additional second year earning an MPH.
