The Oculoplastics and Orbit fellowship at UBC is a one-year program divided into two 6-month rotations. Fellows will be exposed to a wide range of eyelid, lacrimal and orbital pathology, including but not limited to common eyelid procedures, endoscopic and endonasal DCR, orbital decompression, and periocular and orbital cancer resection and reconstructions in a multidisciplinary approach. Depending upon the fellow’s interests, rotation with other subspecialty services (e.g., ocular oncology, plastic surgery, neurosurgery) can be arranged.

The fellow is expected to engage in all aspects of clinical and surgical care as well as clinical teaching of medical students and residents. Participation in clinical research is highly encouraged and geared towards the interest area of each fellow.
