The EBAA is currently looking for a member eye bank to serve as host for the EBAA Mary Jane O’Neill Fellowship in International Eye Banking for a one week period during June 2019.
PROGRAM GOALS: To provide medical or technical personnel from the international community of eye banks with the skills necessary to develop, operate, and maintain a successful eye banking program. This fellowship is targeted toward eye bank staff in underserved areas, and provides intensive one-on-one instruction in the setting of a functioning EBAA-member eye bank.
PROGRAM DESIGN: The Mary Jane O’Neill (MJO) Fellow will “intern” in an active eye bank setting for one week, observing and participating in the various functions and activities which relate to a successful eye banking program, such as: administrative, public relations activities, technical procedures, medical chart review, DRAI, recovery, processing, preservation, and distribution. The host eye bank will work closely with EBAA to ensure realization of the goals of the program.
RESPONSIBILITIES DURING FELLOWSHIP: During the Fellowship, EBAA and the host eye bank work together to meet program goals and to cover the Fellow’s costs, related to the program. Below, you will find the responsibilities of EBAA and the host eye bank during the Fellowship. In the past, our host eye banks have generously sponsored the MJO Fellow during his/her internship with the eye bank. If you are not able to meet all listed criteria for sponsorship, please let EBAA know what services you are able to provide for the Fellow.
The deadline to submit an application is March 30, 2018.
