UC Berkeley – 2011 Summer Opto-Camp – Application Open

The Admissions and Student Affairs Office at UC Berkeley’s School of Optometry is pleased to announce that we are celebrating 6 years of our summer "Opto-Camp" program! We will again offer two sessions this summer, June 20-22 and July 18-20.

The goal of Berkeley Optometry’s Opto-Camp is to introduce underrepresented and first-generation pre-health science majors to Optometry as a potential future career track and to prepare them to be successful applicants to optometry school. The objective of Berkeley Optometry’s Opto-Camp is to

present a three-day "in residence" experience that will provide participants with opportunities to learn about the profession of optometry and the process of becoming an optometrist.

Please note there is a $125 program fee for those selected to attend, however, we also offer a limited number of scholarships per session.

Program specifics and the application are linked here:

The application deadline is Monday, April 25, 2011.

Please share this information with your prospective optometry students and thank you!

Best wishes,

Sharon Joyce
