Support a Medical Student in Ophthalmology!

Our team at the Mitchel and Shannon Wong Eye Institute is united by a passion to give residents and medical students a transformative educational experience that shapes how they practice through a profound understanding of the principles of value-based, integrated healthcare delivery for the management of ophthalmic disease. 

Students from medical schools across the country can spend a month with our physicians at the Mitchel and Shannon Wong Eye Institute to strengthen their skills, prepare them for a career in Ophthalmology, and to interest them in our Ophthalmology residency program. Unfortunately, a month in Austin is not cheap! We would love to contribute to these students' travel costs (airfare, rental car, housing) to make this equitable and fair to ALL. We hope to provide at least 13 students up to $750 towards their travel expenses. 


In order to attract the best medical students to our residency program, we want to lay a solid foundation to remove financial barriers and encourage medical students from diverse backgrounds and communities to participate in the program.

The Broken Spoke

A great start to two-step into helping a medical student. Living in Austin is expensive, every little bit helps!


The Darrell K. Royal

Your $50 donation will bring out-of-town medical students a whole lot closer to becoming a Longhorn! Your gift will increase diversity and accessibility!


The Willie Nelson

When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around. - Willie Nelson


The UT Tower

Be a beacon of light in the life of a medical student. Your donation of $500 will help us greatly with their travel and housing costs. Living in Austin can be prohibitively expensive for many students. This will help tremendously!


The McConaughey

GREEN LIGHT for your donation of $1000!! This is a huge way to make our program accessible for future ophthalmologists.


The Eyes of Texas

You definitely have the school spirit by supporting The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School with a generous donation! Your important gesture will help increase diversity and accessibility of our rotation.
