Improving the Future of Chinese Optometry
Why 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.
