The University of Iowa endeavors to attract the highest caliber and most suitable applicants to become ophthalmology fellows. 

Glaucoma fellows must have successfully completed an Accredited Ophthalmology Residency by the start of the fellowship (July 1).

We place a high emphasis on providing sub-specialty training for clinical ophthalmology and research. Letters of recommendation, performance on OKAP and other national examinations, extracurricular activities and the applicant's personal statement are criteria that are considered prior to offering applicants an interview.
