Academic Readiness Program

UIWRSO is excited to announce a summer Academic Readiness Program for the Class of 2023 that will begin just prior to entering the Doctor of Optometry (OD) program.

  • Obtain early exposure to pace and course load to assist in preparation for the first year experience
  • Engage in clinical lab experiences that preview academic experience
  • Receive mentorship from UIWRSO first-year faculty members
  • Connect with upperclassmen who can serve as mentors and role models
  • Topics that will be covered will include but not limited to Optics, Gross Anatomy & Histology, Clinical Physiology, and Basic Optometry
  • Utilize these experiences to develop individual success strategies for the professional program

Dates: July 15 - August 9, 2019
