We spoke with Michael Speirs, associate professor in the Physician Assistant Studies (PA) Program, about the on-campus cadaver lab and how it benefits the students at Salus.
Are you interested in doing a residency after completing optometry school? According to a current Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) at Salus University resident below, “a residency is the equivalence to five years of practicing on your own.” She learned this during an externship and it sold her on considering a residency following her degree. The quality of PCO’s residency programs are among the very highest available, either academically or institutionally based.
Last year, at this time, a team from The College Tour visited the Elkins Park, Pennsylvania campus to film and feature our students and faculty highlighting what makes Salus University unique and stand out ahead of the pack.
This next series features Rachel Brackley, OD ‘09, Resident ‘10, FAAO, PCO assistant professor, and Bhawan Minhas, OD, FAAO, Resident ’14, going into more detail about the externship options and selection process.
Students Michael Furey ‘22OD and Anna Hess ‘22OD then provide the student perspective in selecting externship sites and what they were looking for.
To build upon the most recent series featuring faculty and students within the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) at Salus University’s Doctor of Optometry Accelerated Scholars Program, during part four, Alissa Coyne, OD ‘10, Resident ‘11, FAAO, PCO assistant professor, highlights some details of the program’s clinical education while students, Misa Sueyoshi ‘23OD and Israel Moore ‘23OD describe some specific patient care stories.
