Goals of the OD Program

The goals of the optometry program are to graduate optometrists who are knowledgeable, clinically competent, professional and ethical. In addition, we seek to prepare our students for the future of optometric practice by teaching them to think critically as life-long learners who understand the scientific basis of the profession and apply the fundamentals of evidence based practice to patient care. Our program is also designed to provide opportunities to customize learning to student interests on advanced topics through elective courses and the selection of advanced clinic assignments.
