The American Board of Optometry (ABO) has launched a new school Ambassador program, tapping the expertise of its own Diplomates to educate students, residents and faculty ODs about the organization’s voluntary Board Certification program. UHCO is pleased to announce that Dr. Pat Segu has been selected as Ambassador for our institution.
On Sunday, April 15, 2018, close to 100 undergraduates, high school students, parents, and guests visited the University of Houston College of Optometry for our annual UHCOpen House event. Over 20 UHCO students, faculty, and staff members guided guests on tours of the College, shared demos in our labs and clinics, and led a student informational panel to share advice and tips with future applicants about Optometry school life, the application process, studying for the OAT, and much more.
