This includes optometry school admission presentations, volunteer and job opportunities, mentorship, helpful hints and insight regarding the OAT and optometry school application.

Our speakers include optometrists, ophthalmologists, optometry students, and optometry school admissions officers. Topics include research opportunities in optometry, scholarships available for optometry school, private practice, student life, optometry vs. ophthalmology, admissions requirements, taking the OAT, and much more!
