ICO-Fred Hollows Foundation One-Year Subspecialty Fellowships
One of the primary goals and commitments of the ICO is to enhance ophthalmic education to improve eye care and contribute to preservation and restoration of vision around the world. To fulfill this commitment, the ICO offers educational programs and initiatives to invigorate and support ophthalmic education, especially in low-resource countries.
The International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) Fellowships Program was organized to help promising young ophthalmologists from low-resources 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.
ICO Offers one year subspecialty training at a designated ICO Fellowship Training Center to young ophthalmologists from low-resource countries in which the Fred Hollows Foundation is active.
