Improving the Future of Chinese Optometry

Liping Chen - Salus CampusWhy did you choose Salus?
I applied to Salus University because I wanted to further the development of optometry in China by studying advanced courses and applications in the United States. The Chinese Optometric and Optical Association (COOA) entered into an agreement with Salus in 2015 and I was accepted into the Master of Science in Clinical Optometry with an Advanced Studies Certificate Degree Program in 2016, along with six other optometrists from across China .

Not only does Salus have a beautiful campus, but also many distinguished professors. I grew to love the Salus community and our program very much. The program is flexible in that, in addition to the MSCO courses, students can choose an area of concentration for the Advanced Studies certificate portion of the program. I chose Binocular Vision and Vision Therapy and was very pleased with my experience.

While at Salus, I became much more proficient in identifying and managing eye disease. The Controlled Patient Care courses helped improve my ability to communicate with patients, my technical skills became much stronger and I became more effective in the diagnosis and management of many ocular conditions.

My experience at Salus was so valuable for me; it really changed my career, and opened my mind in many ways.

学生亮点:陈丽萍
我选择萨鲁斯大学是因为我想通过在美国学习视光学的专业高级课程及其应用来促进中国的视光学的发展。中国眼镜协会(COOA)于2015年与萨鲁斯大学建立了合作关系并选派中国的优秀视光学教师赴美学习,2016年我和另外6位来自中国各地的视光师有幸被选派攻读萨鲁斯大学的临床视光学硕士项目。

萨鲁斯大学不仅有一个美丽的校园,还有许多杰出的教授。我愈加喜欢萨鲁斯大学团队以及我们所在的这个项目。这个项目实施灵活,除了MSCO的常规课程外,学生们还可以根据自己的兴趣选择一个重点攻读的高级课程专业方向,通过系统地学习结业并最终获得该专业的高级课程证书。我选择了双眼视觉和视觉训练作为自己的高级课程专业,我对自己的高级课程专业学习经历非常满意。

通过在萨鲁斯的学习,我对各种眼病的鉴别诊断和处理能力变得越来越熟练。尤其是通过临床实训的课程,我的医患沟通技能得到明显提升,也使得我的临床操作技能和眼病诊疗技能得到有效地加强。

在萨鲁斯学习的经历对我来说非常宝贵,它改变了我的职业生涯也开从多方面开阔了我的眼界。
