[email protected] WIO Ambassador

Self Nominations are due by Friday, September 22, 2017.

Women in Ophthalmology (WIO) is partnering with the Ophthalmology Innovation Summit (OIS) to provide the opportunity for one young ophthalmologist, trainee, senior resident or fellow to attend the OIS meeting on Thursday, November 9, held prior to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) 2017 Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

OIS was created to facilitate meaningful interactions and business partnerships between physicians, entrepreneurs, investors, and industry executives who are driving ophthalmic innovation. The selected ambassador will have the opportunity to meet with and attend the OIS meeting with a senior WIO leader who will serve as your mentor for the day, and perhaps beyond!

The ideal candidate is looking to build their pathway to being a key opinion leader, has a passion for surgery, and is excited about the opportunity to learn about and utilize new equipment or devices.

Please fill out the WIO Ambassador Self-Nomination Form by Friday, September 22.

  • You must be a WIO member or willing to join.
  • Specifically, address why you are interested, and how the interaction with an experienced key opinion leader, and attending the meeting is an exciting opportunity to you. You will be expected to participate in an interview about your experience at OIS. WIO will provide the selected ambassador with complimentary registration for [email protected] 2017.
