Clinical Education

Clinical education at the college is centered on direct patient care, as third year interns in the University Eye Center (UEC), and later during fourth year rotations in the UEC and at externship sites. Clinical faculty supervise and assess students through all phases of clinical education. Expectations are based on progression in four core areas:

  • Refractive Error Evaluation and Management
  • Sensorimotor and Perceptual Dysfunction
  • Ocular Disease and Trauma
  • Interdisciplinary/Interprofessional Patient Care
