Individual and Small Group Training

The individual and small group program is intended to provided customized training for an intensive few day visit or for a longer, 3-6 months, time period.   During the visit trainees can decide to focus on advances in swept-source laser designs, development and fabrication of customizable OCT imaging probes and rotary junctions, as well as full OCT system integration and application based imaging techniques.

The program has several focus areas including:

  • Laser Design
  • Imaging Probes & Rotary Junctions
  • OCT Systems Engineering
  • Clinical Imaging
  • Small Animal Imaging

Post-Doctoral Training

The CBORT post-doctoral training program is a diverse program bringing together experts in biology, engineering, and medicine from Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology in order to train the next generation of leaders in optical imaging, and in particular OCT.

The overarching goal of the CBORT post-doctoral program is to train post-doctoral fellows through a diverse group of faculty mentors with focus on OCT technical development and clinical translation. The program emphasizes interdisciplinary approaches, bench-to-bedside translation, and long-term career development. These goals are achieved by close mentorship, well-coordinated and broadly-based didactic sessions, and careful monitoring and career planning by the CBORT Director in collaboration with the fellows primary mentor.

Traveling Lectures

This initiative is intended to facilitate the training of broad groups of individuals through external site visits to other academic institutions by CBORT Resource Faculty. Site visits usually take place over the course of 1-2 days and institutions are strategically selected based on their ability to offer multiple contact points in engineering, biology, and medicine in order to extend the OCT expertise of the Resource Faculty to a spectrum of investigators interested in utilizing OCT in biomedical research.
