Further professional training at the Eye Clinic in 2015

Dr. Dereje Woyessa from Ethiopia was a guest at our Munich clinic from mid-May to mid-June 2015. He has worked for a number of years in his home country as Assistant Professor and Vitreoretinal Specialist at the University of Addis Ababa. While dining with members of the Foundation Board, Frieder Roth and Jens Wernick, and Dr. Schönfeld, now responsible for further training of overseas doctors, Dr. Woyessa related how this professional development opportunity would make him the second doctor in a country of 80 million inhabitants to operate on the fundus of the eye.

His further training in vitroretinal surgery at the Eye Clinic will help him take this important step forward. Other guests this year have been Dr. Sukhi from India and Dr. Umer Khan from Pakistan.
