Establishment of the “Matthew W. Mosteller, M.D. Corneal Fellowship” at the University of Alabama School of Medicine
In September of 2008, the Board of Trustees at the University of Alabama approved a resolution establishing the “Matthew W. Mosteller, M.D. Endowed Fellowship in Corneal and External Disease”. This endowed fellowship will provide a continuous source of funding to train cornea fellows in the department of ophthalmology at the University of Alabama School of Medicine in Birmingham. This tribute was established by the University in Dr. Mosteller’s name because of “his dedication to his colleagues, patients and his contributions to the advancement of corneal and refractive surgery.” As stated in the resolution, “this endowed fellowship in the honor on Dr. Matthew Mosteller is to support those young corneal fellows at the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Alabama School of Medicine who aspire to follow in his footsteps in his commitment to excellence in the corneal surgery. This fellowship has created a lasting legacy in Dr. Mosteller’s name whose expertise and commitment to excellence as a renowned surgeon has touched the lives of many individuals and families throughout the South who have received renewed sight through his outstanding care”. Premier Medical is proud that this endowment was established in honor of one of their physicians.
