Valley Retina Institute (VRI) offers fellowship opportunities for national and international physicians to complete their retinal and vitreous training.

The chosen candidate can expect approximately 75 patients for routine evaluation or about seven patients in the operating room a day. Doctors also travel from McAllen to our other locations in Harlingen and Brownsville on a weekly basis, and they accept consultations at neighboring hospitals. A typical workday has an average duration of 8-10 hours.

VRI is located in the medical hub of Ridge Road in McAllen, Texas. McAllen has a population of about 107,000 and it is ranked one of the least expensive cities to live in the US. Nowadays, it is one of the fastest growing regions in the country with a soaring Hispanic population.

We are currently accepting one training physician per year. Interested physicians must submit an application. You can contact Dr. Victor H. Gonzalez at:
