A New Academic Year Begins for AGO
We welcome Cristos Ifantides, MD, MBA, as this year’s Wills Eye Hospital Academic Global Ophthalmology fellow. A recent graduate of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai’s ophthalmology residency program, Cristos will be splitting his time between teaching the Wills Eye residents in Philadelphia and improving eye healthcare delivery while abroad. His particular interests include improving educational systems, biotechnology to increase access of care, understanding the cultural implications of healthcare delivery, and solidifying the global network of eye-care professionals. His first medical expedition will be to Guayaquil, Ecuador with other members of the Wills Eye Hospital team.
