A five-year collaboration with St. Paul’s Hospital Millennium Medical College in Addis Ababa has resulted in the graduation of the Medical College's first ophthalmology residency class. This residency training initiative has been led by Kellogg faculty member Christine Nelson, MD, and is one of a very few in a country.  Behind the first graduating class of 6 residents are more than 20 other trainees in various stages of the program.  A deep partnership has been formed that includes learner exchange and meaningful research.   A new project is now underway for retinoblastoma screening in Ethiopian children using artificial intelligence technology developed in Ann Arbor.
