Available Opportunities


Midwest Retina/SEE International

Posted November 6, 2017

Travel to either Cap Haitien or Port au Prince, Haiti to continue the training of two Haitian ophthalmologists in complex vitrectomy surgery. Each location is well equipped, travel is easy, and accomodations are very good. Both doctors are well on their way to being fully trained. Cases are mostly prescreened to maximize opportunity. Contact me or Rachel Siegel at SEE International for more information.
