The Dean McGee Eye Institute (DMEI)/University of Oklahoma (OU) is seeking a talented ophthalmologist with fellowship training in medical retina and an interest in pursuing a career with a robust clinical volume, excellent clinical and basic research opportunities, faculty participation in outstanding residency and fellowship programs, and state-of-the-art facilities. 

The Institute provides more than 220,000 total patient visits annually in its 150,000 square-foot facility in downtown Oklahoma City and its 4 satellite locations.  DMEI increased the number of clinical lanes (now more than 120 at the main facility) by another 25% in August 2018 with the opening of The Chickasaw Nation Center of Excellence for Diabetic Retinopathy and Macular Degeneration. The Department houses many National Institutes of Health-funded investigators greatly interested in collaboration and translational research. Many of the faculty serve in national leadership positions. We have a strong residency program with 5 residents per year, as well as an AUPO-compliant 2-year retina fellowship with one fellow per year.  Salary support is highly competitive.

Oklahoma City is the 20th largest city in the US, with a population of approximately 700,000 and a metropolitan area of 1.4 million.  The city is experiencing a major downtown renaissance and enjoys a low cost of living, a low unemployment rate, lots of sunshine, and numerous cultural and recreational opportunities (including NBA Thunder basketball).

Candidates must have completed an ophthalmology residency and a medical retinal fellowship, be eligible for medical licensure in the state of Oklahoma, and be certified or eligible for certification by the American Board of Ophthalmology (international pathway included). Training and interest in uveitis would be highly desirable.
