Ophthalmic Scientist Programme
The department introduced Canada's first Ophthalmic Clinician Scientist Programme in 1996. Dr. Agnes Wong, MD, FRCS(C) completed her PhD programme in the Institute of Medical Science in July 2001. Funding for this initiative comes from the Vaughan Trust Fund. It is hoped that this exciting new initiative will lead to the production of a generation of young Ophthalmic Clinician Researchers and create an enlarged academic milieu at the University of Toronto.
