Our clinic was chosen to be a part of the University of Houston College of Optometry's Externship Program. This program is designed to help train and educate our nation's future optometrists. The students that join us are in their last year of clinical education before becoming a Doctor of Optometry.
The students who join us will have already completed all of their academic course work, taken and passed parts 1 and 2 of their national boards, have demonstrated competency in all of the various clinics within school, and have seen a significant number of patients.
Their responsibility at our clinic is to accumulate as much real world experience and knowledge as possible before graduation.
