With the generous contributions of our donors, VisionSave has successfully raised $373,500 to establish the Barry Cullen International Fellowship in Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences*. Our sincere gratitude goes out to all donors who have given steadfast support in establishing this fellowship! Your gift has been matched, dollar-for-dollar, by SNEC up to $312,500 so the total amount raised for this Fellowship is now $686,000.
The fellowship is part of VisionSave’s drive to nurture future generations of eye care professionals. It aims to enhance the training of young clinicians and clinician-scientists in ophthalmology and visual sciences, particularly in the subspecialty of Neuro-ophthalmology. It will offer different fellowship options, such as one-year clinical or clinical research fellowships and six-month observerships.
The fellowship will be awarded to local and international fellows who intend to pursue subspecialty training at SNEC.
Serving as a tribute to the late Dr Barry Cullen, the fellowship honours his dedication and contributions in shaping the educational landscape of ophthalmology in Singapore and Malaysia, as well as in the advancement of Neuro-Ophthalmology worldwide.
The fellowship will lay the foundation of the awardee’s subspecialty career, continuing the good work and nurturing spirit of Dr Cullen. Its other objectives include continually developing all areas of ophthalmology, and strengthening SNEC’s outreach and profile globally.
*The naming of the fellowship is subjected to approval by SingHealth-Duke NUS
