For Ophthalmologists in Developing Countries.
Sponsored by the Retina Research Foundation in cooperation with the ICOFoundation, this new fellowship program honors the public service leadership of Mr. W.H. Helmerich III.
The Helmerich Fellowships are designed to provide advanced subspecialty training to ophthalmologists and help transmit new knowledge to their home countries.
Two 12-month fellowships will be awarded each year.
The awardees will receive salary for one year and air transportation support, and the host institution will receive a stipend to assist with training expenses.
Applicants should have completed ophthalmology residency training, be fluent in the language of the training location, and have a commitment to return to a position at a teaching institution or public service hospital in their home country following the fellowship, among other requirements.
