The process will involve skills up-gradation components and personal interactions with eminent leaders in the eye care and development sector
Sightsavers India has opened applications for the Sightsavers India Fellowship programme 2022. The fellowship is a first-of-its-kind programme, started in 2019 for young ophthalmologists. The initiative focuses on grooming bright and competent young ophthalmologists into skilled professionals.
Sightsavers India Fellowship is an opportunity for promising and passionate young ophthalmologists to get trained at leading eye health institutions in India. Alongside, it gives them a chance to apply their skills and knowledge in the real world while being placed under Sightsavers India Eye Health Programme.
Over 24 months, the fellows experience a structured skill enhancement and mentoring process covering not only clinical and surgical ophthalmology but also managerial and holistic life skills. The process involves skills up-gradation components and personal interactions with eminent leaders in the eye care and development sector. Selected fellows get an attractive appreciative stipend through the fellowship period.
