The International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) Fellowships Program was organized to help promising young ophthalmologists from developing countries improve their practical skills and broaden their perspectives of ophthalmology.
Fellows are expected to bring the acquired knowledge and skills back to their home countries and take part in programs to preserve vision and prevent blindness. These fellowships provide young ophthalmologists from developing countries with exposure to and training in several subspecialties in ophthalmology.
The World Glaucoma Association (WGA) has sponsored four ICO Three-Month Fellowships for young ophthalmologists from Sub-Saharan Africa.
The ICO-WGA Fellowships have been awarded to ophthalmologists from Nigeria, South Africa, Cameroon, and Togo. Each fellow is receiving US$6,000 to cover expenses and free registration for the June 28–July 1, 2017 World Glaucoma Congress in Helsinki, Finland.
The Fellows will spend their summer training in Finland, hosted by Helsinki University Central Hospital, Tampere University Hospital and the University of Turku.
