Wendy Zhang, MD is the recipient of the 2018 Ronald G. Michels Fellowship Award.
Ronald G. Michels Fellowship Foundation Awards are granted annually to outstanding second-year vitreoretinal fellows in training. To become eligible, candidates submit a formal application that includes thorough generic information and letters of reference. A panel of noted physicians, educators and scientists reviews and ranks the applications. These rankings are submitted to the foundation’s board of directors to determine the award recipients.
The fellowship award recipients receive a cash stipend and a plaque. They are requested to attend the next Ronald G. Michels Fellowship Foundation Annual Meeting, which is held during the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting, and to briefly introduce themselves to the audience. This meeting brings together supporters of the foundation, including previous award winners. It offers an opportunity to socialize, strengthen relationships, and review the accomplishments of the foundation.
