Dear Colleagues: The Admissions and Student Affairs Office at UC Berkeley’s School of Optometry is pleased to announce that we will again host our summer Opto-Camp program! We will offer two sessions this summer, June 17-19 and July 15-17. 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 that there is a $125 program fee for those selected to attend, however, we are also offering a limited amount of scholarships per session. Program specifics and the application are linked here: http://optometry.berkeley.edu/opt_txtpp/admissions/admitoptocamp.html The application deadline is Monday, May 6, 2013. Please share this information with anyone who you think might be interested. Thank you! Best wishes, Heather Iwata Opto-Camp Director pdf icon2013_flier.pdf
