Canadian Fellowship Grant Program
Dr. Dan O’Connell, Edmonton, AB
Chair, Canadian Fellowship Committee
I am pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 Fellowship grants. From the many excellent applicants, Dr. Yelda Jozaghi from University of Toronto and Dr. Justin Lui from the University of Calgary have been chosen as the award recipients.
Dr. Lui is doing a neurotology/otology fellowship at the University in Toronto and Dr. Jozaghi’s fellowship is in head and neck oncology and microvascular surgery at MD Anderson, University of Texas. We look forward to hearing from them at the annual CSOHNS meeting upon completion of their work.
Our sincere thanks to all those who reviewed the applications.
