Being selected for a two-year Surgical Retina Fellowship in The Retina Group of Washington-Washington Hospital Center-Georgetown University Hospital program is a fitting next step in Dr. Levinson’s remarkable medical career.  In conjunction with completing his Residency in Ophthalmology at the Emory University School of Medicine, he served as the department’s Chief Resident. A Summa Cum Laude graduate of Emory’s med school–where he was chosen by his peers as one of the five “Most Outstanding Medical Students”–he had previously earned similar academic recognition as a “First Honor” graduate and Presidential Scholar from the University of Georgia.

Dr. Levinson has already compiled an impressive record in the research arena, having had several studies on which he’s worked to be published in such prestigious peer-reviewed publications as the American Journal of Ophthalmology, Retina and the Journal of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus.  He has also presented at a myriad of national meetings, including the Association for Research in Vision & Ophthalmology and the American Glaucoma Society.   

Advocating for patients at both the state and local levels has afforded Dr. Levinson the opportunity to give back to those in need.  He volunteered all through his med school years at the Open Door Clinic, a free community-based screening facility in Atlanta, was an Advocacy Ambassador for an American Academy of Ophthalmology program and helped develop an Ophthalmology Interest Group Clinical Skills Workshop to teach clinical skills to medical students.
