Inspiring Optometry Students To Lead
Graduates are Outstanding Optometrists and Community Leaders
Besides developing clinically proficient optometrists, UIWRSO has a tradition of serving others and giving back for the greater good of the community. We believe leadership is an invaluable quality and have woven this principle into the curriculum through community outreach programs.
We’re developing leaders whose clinical acumen is only surpassed by their compassion for their patients. We want leaders who are strong, understanding and will fight for the soul of the profession.
During the second year of professional study, our students embrace the opportunity to provide vision and disease screenings to area underserved populations at our various clinics. We’ve watched the maturation process of our students as they become more confident, compassionate and independent leaders through these experiences. We’re proud our students and faculty live and breathe this mission.
