ZEISS Benefits for Young Ophthalmologists

ICO Fellowship - Training as key to good medical treatment

Experience shows: In the economically challenged regions of the world, training can have a direct positive influence on quality of life. As a partner of the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO), Medical Technology from ZEISS supports the ICO Fellowship Program. This scholarship program aims at supporting particularly talented up-and-coming eye care professionals from economically weaker regions.

  • During their internships lasting several months in hospitals hospitals equipped with modern tools, the doctors can improve their skills in ophthalmology and later harness the knowledge gained in their work in their home countries.
  • Especially in rapidly developing economies and in developing countries, well-trained doctors are vital to alleviate the symptoms of eye diseases or to prevent blindness.
  • ZEISS invites up-and-coming doctors from Mexico, Kenya, Ethiopia and China and offers them valuable insights into Medical Technology at ZEISS


The investment into state-of-the-art medical devices is a decision that is not purely based on technical performance, but also on their contribution to the overall quality of care and workflow efficiency. Our courses are designed to help Young Ophthalmologists as well as medical practitioners, hospital personnel, optometrists and technical assistants getting the optimum out of their instruments.

Through a variety of educational opportunities, healthcare professionals can get guidance on most effectively using ZEISS products and solutions in the clinical context, thereby avoiding problems and unnecessary loss of time.
