Internship Program Provides Unparalleled Experience for CSTEP Students

For two weeks this January a dozen undergraduate college students from throughout New York State participated in the SUNY College of Optometry’s CSTEP Winter Internship Program. The students had the opportunity to attend lectures by College faculty members and experience first-hand what it’s like to work with and care for patients in the University Eye Center.

The Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program is a New York State-sponsored initiative designed to increase the number of historically underrepresented minority students in the sciences. SUNY Optometry is an enthusiastic partner in the CSTEP program. In addition to the internship programs, the College hosts a free, eight-week Summer Academic Program each year from May to July.
