we're as committed to your dreams as you are
the southern california college of optometry has a proud tradition of training skilled clinicians. clinical education and training is reinforced with advanced learning technology such as the virtual reality magic binocular direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy used in labs. our faculty is committed to excellence in teaching. whether in the classroom, clinic, or side-by-side with students in community service events, they are dedicated to being available to provide mentorship in and out of the classroom. lecture and lab courses are taught by the same faculty who teach in clinic, which helps to reinforce foundational concepts into clinical application in patient care. faculty are devoted to cultivating lifelong friendships with the students they know will be future colleagues.
students join faculty members for a variety of experiences outside the classroom. from networking at local optometric society meetings to influencing legislation on capitol hill, serving side-by-side in local elementary schools or on mission trips abroad, faculty mentoring occurs in many contexts. our faculty members aren’t just great educators, they’re great people too.
