PRACTICE OPPORTUNITY: Due to a growing need in this community, an Ophthalmologist is greatly needed to work at their Regional Hospital.

A candidate who was fellowship trained (i.e., Cornea and External Disease, Cataract and Refractive Surgery, Glaucoma, Uveitis and Ocular Immunology, or has other specialization fellowship training) would have to be willing to do a significant amount of general ophthalmology. This is because there is not enough of a population base to support doing a great deal of the aforementioned specialization surgeries, etc.
