Salus University and Community College of Philadelphia have partnered to bring an innovative Ophthalmic Technician Proficiency Certificate Program to Philadelphia. The program launched Jan. 17 at the Community College’s Northwest Regional Center—adjacent to The Eye Institute—and is expected to provide family-sustaining jobs for individuals in the neighborhood.
For nearly 40 years, the Pennsylvania College of Optometry and now Salus University has hosted the Optometry Learning Experience (OLE) annually. This year’s OLE sessions took place last week, with 28 total students attending either January 9-11 or January 11-13.
With its first cohort set to graduate this year, Salus University Pennsylvania College of Optometry’s Doctor of Optometry Accelerated Scholars Program is continuing on a path to success.
Described as an “all or none firing neuron” in high school, Dr. Kriti Bhagat didn’t quite understand its meaning until taking a neuroscience class during her undergraduate studies as a psychology major at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
