A Fellowship is training that is done post-residency or post-certification that is not recognized by the Royal Colege of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Ophthalmology Fellowship Programs

The McMaster Ophthalmology Division currently offers the following Fellowship programs:

In order to be eligible for a Fellowship, the applicant must meet the requirements of the licensing authority - The College of Physicians of Ontario. As well, the Ophthalmology Division will only accept applicants who are fully funded externally either through outside agenicies, bureaus etc. as internal funding or Postgraduate funding is not available.

If self-funded, please review the Postgraduate policy here.
