2019 Fellows: where are they now?
We are very proud to learn about the incredible achievements made by 2019 ICO-WGA Fellow, Dr. Lemlem Tamrat. After kick-starting her global learning experience from Australia, through to Nepal and Ethiopia, she is back home doing SLT treatment for her patients with the laser machine donated by Dr. Geoff and his colleagues from Australia.
‘Just finished one-year glaucoma fellowship at Flinders University, SA, Tilganga institute of Ophthalmology, Nepal and Saint Paul’s Hospital Millennium Medical College (SPHMMC), Ethiopia (March 2019 to March 2020). Thank you ICO, WGA and all sponsoring bodies for making my fellowship in South Australia so fruitful. I want to thank my host prof. Jamie Craig and his colleague Dr. John L. at Flinders University. Many thanks to Dr. Amma Galanopolous, Prof. Robert C. and Dr. James M., at Royal Adelaide Hospital, where I did part of my fellowship in SA.
Part of my fellowship training was in Nepal and Ethiopia. I want to extend my extreme gratitude to Prof. Suman T. and Dr. Indira P. Dr. Scott L., Dr. Girum W. for contributing for this fellowship.
My appreciation also goes to Australian and New Zealand Glaucoma Society, Sight for All, Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP) for supporting this training. After all, now I am back home doing my practice at SPHMMC. I also started doing SLT treatment for my patients with the later machine donated by Dr. Geoff and his colleagues from Australia. My learning experience at each site was so wonderful.
God bless all and stay safe.’
