Eastcott Referrals Intern Presents an excellent scientific abstract presentation to the BrAVO
Congratulations to Malwina Kowalska for an excellent scientific abstract presentation to the British Association of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (BrAVO) at the pre-congress day at BSAVA. Malwina is one of our referral interns and has been working within our team of 4 interns and referral team since August 2016. Under the guidance of our ophthalmologists Ida Gilbert and Mark Ames and our soft tissue surgeon Poppy Bristow, Malwina performed a retrospective study evaluation into the outcomes in over 150 phacoemulsification treatments for cataracts at Eastcott Referrals. Not only was the visual outcome excellent in these cases but the study also identified some really interesting information that was very well presented and received by the delegates present at the abstract.
Malwina has worked incredibly hard during her internship and her diligence and commitment shone through during her presentation. Sadly, as with all interns, we will lose Malwina to new pastures in the summer and we are hopeful that she will go on to become a shining star of the ophthalmology world. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours whilst we look forward to our new intake of 5 interns in July 2017.
