American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) Fellowship Training Program for Foreign Ophthalmologists
Dr. Geoffrey J. Gladstone is the Program Director of a one-year ASOPRS-accredited fellowship program for foreign ophthalmologists. This training program is exclusively for foreign (i.e., citizens of countries other than the United States, it territories or Protectorates, or Canada) ophthalmologists who will return to their countries to practice oculofacial plastic surgery.
Applicants for this program must have ECFMG (Education Committee for Foreign Medical Graduates) certification and present evidence of such with their application. Applicants should also preferably have a written commitment from their Department Chairperson (or equivalent) to return to their country of origin and establish a practice emphasizing oculofacial plastic surgery and teaching upon completion of their training program.
The accepted candidate must be able to obtain an appropriate educational visa (usually a J1 visa) that will allow them to qualify to spend one year in the United States and must be able to obtain an appropriate Michigan medical license. Candidates for the foreign fellowship training program are not required to register with or participate in the National Resident Matching Program.
