Observership Program

The AAGL Board of Trustees has established the AAGL Observership Program. This short, observational and educational program is for current AAGL members. If you wish to visit and observe surgeries by the participating surgeons please see the list below. Depending on the program, an Observership can last from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.

The Observership Program is not a hands-on program. Due to medical liability and licensing issues, the participant will only be an observer.

A fee may apply to some of the participating programs. Please be sure to carefully review the program description listed below.

If you would like to apply to this educational endeavor, please click on the Application here and complete the form.

Please remember your request can not be guaranteed as site availability as well as types of surgeries observed, will vary.

If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact Claudia Sahagun, Fellowship in MIGS/Resident Education Coordinator, email
