Ukraine Foreign Sponsorship Programe

Dr. Emil Chynn provides Scholarship to one current teacher of English in Ukraine, attending ophthalmologist with completed residency from Ukraine or young business professional from Ukraine, who is in their late 20s or early 30s and have completed their MBA, in order to help his Refractive Fellow in improving her English – doing two good deeds at once!

Read Dr. Dovzhuk letters below for more information.

 

Dear Sir/Madame,

I am writing to you regarding an upcoming trip my boss, Dr Emil Chynn MD, FACS, MBA is taking to Ukraine.  Dr. Chynn has been to Ukraine 7 times over the past 15 years, and has lectured about LASEK at many prominent eye hospitals and clinics in several major cities there.  Dr. Chynn has also had two Refractive Fellows from Kiev work at his clinic in New York City for 1-2 years: Dr. Natalia Kashchenko, and myself, Tetyana Dovzhuk, MD, PhD.

Because I am from Ukraine, I want to “give back” and help the many smart people there, who do not have the best future, because of the unfortunate economic and political situation.  Therefore, I proposed to Dr. Chynn that he offer a visiting scholarship to some worthy individuals in Ukraine, and he agreed.  The Chynn Family Foundation was formed in 2005 to help support educational initiatives all over the world, and has donated $300,000 over the past 5 years to set up scholarships at Columbia and Fordham universities in NYC.

Dr. Chynn attended Dartmouth College, then received his MD from Columbia University, then completed his residency in ophthalmology at Harvard University and his fellowship in Corneal Transplantation & Refractive Surgery at Emory University. He now owns Park Avenue LASEK, the largest LASEK eye surgery center in New York, runs the largest Refractive Fellowship program in the US, and has had interns from 20 countries!

Although I have lived in the heart of New York City, on Park Avenue in Manhattan, in a small studio apartment that Dr. Chynn makes available to his foreign interns and fellows, my English is still only intermediate, and I have difficulty with grammar, spelling, and vocabulary.  I will take a course at Baruch College (which is a state university next to the clinic) next month, but still anticipate needing help from a private tutor to really improve.

Therefore, Dr. Chynn has agreed to provide a Scholarship to one lucky current teacher of English in Ukraine, where he or she would spend 1-2 months in New York City, both teaching me English (especially proper grammar), as well as function as his personal assistant!  This English teacher must be fluent in English at an advanced level (Dr. Chynn’s English is perfect, as he was born in NYC, and scored in the 99th percentile in the English section of the GMAT, which is the standard test that Americans take to get into graduate schools.

This English teacher/Personal Assistant (PA) would be provided with free housing in the same studio apartment I am currently living in, at 333 Park Avenue South in the center of Manhattan.  They would work M-F from 9-7PM, and interact with patients, too, by helping check the patients in and out at our Front Desk.  Therefore, the intern must be well-dressed, well-groomed, well-mannered, and attractive, with a friendly and open demeanor!

The winner must agree to never speak anything but English to me, as one year ago, we had an intern from Kiev with good English stay with me for 6 months, but because we spoke Ukrainian “after hours”, my English got worse!  Dr. Chynn wants to make clear that if he catches my English teacher speaking Russian or Ukrainian with me, they will be deported!

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an English teacher in Ukraine to spend 1-2 months in NYC, improve his or her English by being exposed to native English speakers for 50 hours a week, and have their airfare and housing paid for!  If they do an excellent job, Dr. Chynn will also provide a stipend for living expenses.  If not, they should be prepared to pay for minor expenses such as food (I will give advice so it is under $900/month).

Dr. Chynn will be visiting select English schools in Kiev, Kharkov, and Liviv the last two weeks of April, where he will answer any questions current teachers have about this program, as well as any questions about growing up in NYC, his education at Dartmouth, Columbia, Harvard, Emory, and NYU, or life in the US in general (he’s been to Ukraine many times & his last girlfriend was from Moscow, so can highlight the differences between our two “systems” as well as I).

Please WhatsApp or Viber me at +19292454474or +353876109911 and email me your CV at medical@ParkAvenueLASEK.com and dovzhukt@mail.ru and Dr. Chynn at dr@ParkAvenueLASEK.com  Visit our website before you contact us.  Looking forward to meeting!

Dear Sir/Madame,

I am writing to you regarding an upcoming trip my boss, Dr Emil Chynn MD, FACS, MBA is taking to Ukraine.  Dr. Chynn has been to Ukraine 7 times over the past 15 years, and has lectured about LASEK at many prominent eye hospitals and clinics in several major cities there.  Dr. Chynn has also had two Refractive Fellows from Kiev work at his clinic in New York City for 1-2 years: Dr. Tatiana Kashenko, and myself, Tanya Dovzhuk, MD, PhD.

Because I am from Ukraine, I want to “give back” and help the many smart people there, who do not have the best future, because of the unfortunate economic and political situation.  Therefore, I proposed to Dr. Chynn that he offer a visiting scholarship to some worthy individuals in Ukraine, and he agreed.  The Chynn Family Foundation was formed in 2005 to help support educational initiatives around the world & has donated $300,000 over the past 5 years to set up scholarships.

Dr. Chynn attended Dartmouth College, then received his MD from Columbia University, then completed his residency in ophthalmology at Harvard University and his fellowship in Corneal Transplantation & Refractive Surgery at Emory University, and his MBA from New York University’s Stern School of Business, which is consistently ranked among the top ten business schools in the US. He now owns Park Avenue LASEK, the largest LASEK eye surgery center in New York, runs the largest Refractive Fellowship program in the US, and has had interns from 20 countries over the years!

I had an idea that, in addition to providing an opportunity for physicians and surgeons in Ukraine to come and study under him in NYC, that Dr. Chynn should offer a similar opportunity for young business professionals from Ukraine, who are in their late 20s or early 30s and have completed their MBA, and are fluent in English.  The reason is that Dr. Chynn grew his business from nothing, in the brutally competitive environment of NYC (it is really the most competitive but also the most stimulating and exhilarating city on earth–trust me!), and is nationally and internationally recognized as a pioneering ophthalmologist.  It is my opinion that his training as a MBA at NYU and skills in business, sales, marketing, has been almost as critical for this success as his medical training at Columbia, Harvard, and Emory–so this is what he can share with young businesspeople in Ukraine.  Let’s not forget his public relations skills, too, as he has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and on CNN, Discovery Channel, and every major television network in the US, including CBS, ABC, NBC, and Fox, as well as famous websites like The Huffington Post.  So he can teach that, as well!

Dr. Chynn has generously agreed to provide a Scholarship to one lucky young businessman or businesswoman in their late 20s or early 30s, who has their MBA (or is a current MBA student) to spend 1-2 months in New York City.  This scholarship winner would be provided with free housing in the same apartment I am currently living in at 333 Park Avenue South in the center of Manhattan (with their own bedroom).  He or she would work M-F from 9-7PM, interact with patients, help with sales, marketing, PR, and business development, and also meet with outside vendors and doctors.  Therefore, he or she must be well-dressed, well-groomed, well-mannered, attractive & have a friendly & open demeanor!

The winner must never speak anything but English to me, as we had an intern from Kiev with good English for 6 months, but because we spoke Ukrainian my English got worse!  The winner will be asked to leave if (s)he this happens!

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a young businessperson from Ukraine to spend 1-2 months in NYC, improve his or her English by being exposed to native English speakers, learn many important skills, and have their airfare and housing paid for (they should be prepared to pay for minor expenses such as food; I will give advice so it is $900/month).

Dr. Chynn will be visiting select MBA schools and businesses in Kiev, Kharkov, and Liviv the last two weeks of April, where he will answer any questions about this program, as well as any questions about growing up in NYC, his incredible educational background, or life in the US in general (he’s been to Ukraine many times & his last girlfriend was from Moscow, so can highlight the differences between our two “systems” as well as I could).

Dear Sir/Madame,

I am writing to you regarding an upcoming trip my boss, Dr Emil Chynn MD, FACS, MBA is taking to Ukraine.  Dr. Chynn has been to Ukraine 7 times over the past 15 years, and has lectured about LASEK at many prominent eye hospitals and clinics in several major cities there.  Dr. Chynn has also had two Refractive Fellows from Kiev work at his clinic in New York City for 1-2 years: Dr. Tatiana Kashenko, and myself, Tanya Dovzhuk, MD, PhD.

Because I am from Ukraine, I want to “give back” and help the many smart people there, who do not have the best future, because of the unfortunate economic and political situation.  Therefore, I proposed to Dr. Chynn that he offer a visiting scholarship to some worthy individuals in Ukraine, and he agreed.  The Chynn Family Foundation was formed in 2005 to help support educational initiatives all over the world, and has donated $300,000 over the past 5 years to set up scholarships at Columbia and Fordham universities in NYC.

Dr. Chynn attended Dartmouth College, then received his MD from Columbia University, then completed his residency in ophthalmology at Harvard University and his fellowship in Corneal Transplantation & Refractive Surgery at Emory University, and his MBA at New York University. He now owns Park Avenue LASEK, the largest LASEK eye surgery center in New York, runs the largest Refractive Fellowship program in the US, and has had interns from 20 countries!

I live in the apartment provided by Dr. Chynn, which is small but is at 333 Park Avenue South, in the heart of New York City, on Park Avenue in Manhattan.  Because Park Avenue LASEK is one of the largest refractive centers in NYC, we are always in the need for extra fellows.  Therefore, Dr. Chynn has agreed to provide a Scholarship to one lucky current attending ophthalmologist, who has finished residency, and preferably completed a fellowship or has experience in Cornea/Refractive Surgery, to spend 1-2 months with us.  The Chynn Family Foundation would provide free airfare, and the Scholarship winner would share the apartment with me (with their own room). He or she should be prepared to pay for minor expenses such as food, etc. (I will give advice so it will be no more than $1,000/month).

The Scholarship winner would work M-F from 9-7PM, and interact with patients, check visions and prescriptions, manifest refract, see preop and postop patients, and assist in the operating room.  If the MD has had prior research experience, we will add them to a current study group, and they will assist with and get authorship on one publication! The winner would also attend weekly educational conferences, which rotate at all the major academic centers in NYC!

The winner must agree to never speak anything but English to me, as one year ago, we had an intern from Kiev with good English stay with me for 6 months, but because we spoke Ukrainian “after hours”, my English got worse!  Dr. Chynn wants to make clear that if he catches the visiting doctor speaking Russian or Ukrainian with me, they will be deported!

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an attending ophthalmologist in Ukraine who is fluent in English to spend 1-2 months in NYC, improve his or her English by being exposed to native English speakers, and learn a wealth of information about refractive surgery and how medicine is practiced in the US.  Dr. Chynn is also renowned nationally among his peers for his marketing prowess, which he will share, so the winner can use these skills back home in Ukraine.

Dr. Chynn will be visiting select medical centers and schools and clinics in Kiev, Kharkov, and Liviv the last two weeks of April, where he will answer any questions eye surgeons have about this Scholarship, as well as any questions about growing up in NYC or life in the US in general (he’s been to Ukraine many times & his last girlfriend was from Moscow, so can discuss such differences almost as well as I can).

Please WhatsApp or Viber me at +19292454474 or +353876109911 or email me at medical@ParkAvenueLASEK.com and Dr. Chynn at dr@ParkAvenueLASEK.com.  Visit our website before you contact us.  Looking forward to meeting!

Tatiana Dovzhuk, MD, PhD
