Kellogg Eye Center has partnered with the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons (GCPS) to launch the first pediatric ophthalmology fellowship program in Ghana.  There will now be specialized training in-country to make sure that they produce enough doctors to take care of their children’s eye health needs. The partners have already worked out a two-year training curriculum based on the Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology Fellowship Compliance Committee-approved US programs, and standards set by the International Council of Ophthalmology but customized to be locally relevant for Ghana. Kellogg will now help to develop fellowship programs in other ophthalmic subspecialties.
