Are you a pre-health student who is interested in learning more about the profession of optometry? SUNY Optometry has opened their application cycle for new students for 2 programs:
1) Spring Internship: June 4 – June 14. This is an exploratory program, designed to let students shadow in the clinics, visit private practices, go through professional school readiness workshops, network with the students and faculty, and do a research presentation to name a few.
2) Summer Academic Program: Every Tuesday, June 4 – July 30th. In this academic program, students will get a chance to take introductory optometry curriculum courses with our renowned faculty, for 2 elective credits, possibly transferrable to the students’ college institution. They also get a chance to shadow one day in the clinic.
**Applicants for the internship program must be New York State Residents and identify with a historically underrepresented group or an economically disadvantaged background.**
