Helping To Get Your There

The society has a long history of desiring to help those in training and in missions attend the annual meeting. Our hope is that this meeting would significantly impact both your professional and spiritual journey and that you will become an active member of the society going forward, personally investing in the next generation of ophthalmologists and missionaries.

  1. Ophthalmology Resident or Fellow (Must be a Member in Training – MIT)
  2. 3rd-4th year Medical Student with a strong leaning toward ophthalmology (Must be a Member in Training – MIT)
