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!
