College President Ben Burton last week presented diplomas to more than 150 new Fellows at this year’s Admissions Ceremony.
Congratulating the new doctors, he said: “Make sure you enjoy this day and remember it. Reflect on the hard work and sacrifice that got here. We recognise not just the successful candidates, but also the teachers, friends, colleagues and perhaps most of all parents, partners and family that also made sacrifices to get you where you are today.”
The ceremony, which took place on Friday 8 September at Friends House in central London, included the presentation of Honorary Fellowships to Professor Sarah Ellen Coupland, Andrew Jacks and Fiona Spencer. They join a prestigious group of people recognised for their notable contributions to ophthalmology.
Louisa Wickham, the National Clinical Director for Eye Care, gave the closing address.
