The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences welcomed Roomasa Channa, MD, vitreoretinal surgeon, to the DOVS faculty on September 21, 2020.
Dr. Channa comes to us from the Baylor College of Medicine and Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston, Texas, where she held an assistant professor appointment. She obtained her Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degrees at the Aga Khan University in Karachi, Pakistan. Afterward, she completed a pre-residency research fellowship in retina and uveitis at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins University, as well as a one-year internal medicine internship at the St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Channa then returned to the Wilmer Eye Institute to complete her specialty training as an ophthalmology resident and vitreoretinal surgical fellow.
We are pleased to have Dr. Channa join our DOVS family and are excited for her future at UW-Madison.
