Upcoming WinR Events
May - November, 2021
The Women in Retina Section is expanding it’s mentoring program to include a new long-term option, designed to facilitate longitudinal relationships and strengthen the WinR community. This year, the program will run between now and the AAO meeting and will leverage a virtual format.
Active WinR members who have been out of fellowship for more than 3 years are invited to become mentors. Ten selected mentors will be asked to attend a training session over Zoom in May and will then be matched with mentees. Fellow-in-Training WinR members and WinR members within their first 3 years of practice are eligible to apply for the mentee opportunity.
Matches will be made using information from an intake survey and mentor-mentee pairs are expected to communicate regularly. To further encourage mentee participation, travel grants to attend the AAO meeting in November are available to mentees who complete the program requirements. All will sign a contract affirming their commitment as a mentor or mentee. If you are interested, please complete the intake form no later than April 30, 2021.
Please check back for updates on other WinR events!
Please note that the events held in conjunction with the ARVO and AAO meetings offer travel grants. Each fellow is eligible to receive one travel grant per year.
