David Pyott and Baljean Dhillon discuss global ophthalmology education and the David and Molly Pyott Foundation Scholarships in Clinical Ophthalmology.


The David and Molly Pyott Foundation has already helped to fund the studies of many of our successful Ophthalmology graduates from around the world, so it was great to hear more about why this kind of education is so important to David. 

These scholarships are designed for international applicants to our online ChM Ophthalmology programmes who come from low resource settings. There are twelve scholarships available for students from Africa, South Asia, Caribbean Islands, Pacific Islands, Central and South America who have been accepted for admission to the online ChM in Clinical Ophthalmology in the academic session 2021/22.

Each Scholarship will cover the full tuition fees and funding towards a laptop and internet service. You can apply via the link below but please hurry as applications close 1st June.
