Judging Overview


Making a difference in people’s lives depends on the lens you view opportunities through – and the gifts you’ve been given to help others.

The Rabb-Venable Excellence in Ophthalmology Program nurtures the next generation of ophthalmologists, specifically those who are underrepresented in medicine or who are committed to enhancing eye-related health outcomes in underserved communities. In advancing this mission, we rely on the generosity, talents, and enthusiasm of our volunteers and donors.


Ongoing opportunities include participating in our Pathway to Success mentorship program, volunteering as a scholarship judge, and making a financial contribution. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, your donation is tax deductible.

Whatever your talents and availability, we invite you to consider joining us. We trust you will find the experience as fulfilling as we have.
