I just finished my residency in ophthalmology. I am from the United Arab Emirates ( UAE) and am really interested in vitreoretinal surgery as a subspecialization. I have taken the USMLE exams step 1 and 2 and am planning to do step 3 soon. I am looking  for a fellowship. Fortunately, I will be fully sponsored by my country.
