Residents and Fellows

From EyeWiki

Contribute to EyeWiki by midnight, Dec. 1, 2019 (U.S. Pacific time), for a chance to win a trip to the Academy’s 2020 Mid-Year Forum.

If you are an ophthalmology resident or fellow in training in the United States, the American Academy of Ophthalmology encourages you to take advantage of the phenomenal online publishing opportunity EyeWiki provides. Qualifying entries will be considered for one of four all-expenses-paid trips to the Academy’s 2020 Mid-Year Forum in Washington, DC, in April. Contest winners also may be invited to present their EyeWiki topic at the Academy's Annual Meeting.

To be considered for the contest, you must be the primary author of your article and it must be wholly original work. Only the primary author of the article, who submits it into the contest, will be considered for an award. You may submit multiple articles, in one or more categories.

Simply write and submit a high-quality EyeWiki article in any of the following areas between December 2, 2018, and December 1, 2019:

  • Cataract/Refractive Surgery/Cornea/Anterior Segment
  • Retina/Vitreous/Uveitis/Oncology/Pathology
  • Glaucoma/Neuro‐Ophthalmology
  • Pediatrics/Strabismus/Oculoplastics/Orbit/Ocular Trauma

You may submit multiple articles in one or more areas. To enter the contest, first create the article, and then use the “Enroll in the Residents and Fellows contest” submission button on the article page to submit it for the competition:

  • Quality of the writing and organization
  • Use of EyeWiki formatting: Layout, use of media (images or video) where appropriate, with references included
