The International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) and the Eye Cancer Foundation (ECF) is offering six-month training fellowships for young ophthalmologists from developing countries who wish to gain a deeper insight into Retinoblastoma diagnosis and treatment. The ICO-ECF Six Months Fellowship will be served at teaching institutions in Mexico, China, Jordan, India, and Iran. Fellows are expected to bring the acquired knowledge and skills back to their home country and take part in programs to preserve and restore vision.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Residency training must be completed before applying for the fellowship.
  • The specialist exam in ophthalmology must be successfully passed.

  • The applicant must return to the home country after the training, resume previous positions, and apply the knowledge gained during the fellowship.
  • The applicant must be reasonably fluent in the language of the fellowship training center.
  • The ICO recommends that candidates pass one or more ICO exams. We consider this in the assessment of applications.
  • Applicants from countries with ophthalmologic societies that are Members of the ICO will receive special consideration.

Fellowship Value:

US$6000 to help cover living expenses and return travel. The exact amount is subject to actual student-style living expenses in the host country.

Fellowship Duration:

Approximately 4-6 six-month fellowships are awarded each year.
