The UHCO clinical residencies are an integral part of advanced education and development for Doctors of Optometry. The advanced clinical training received enhances our residents' abilities and strengthens the optometry profession. To further develop their knowledge, the residents participate in many community service/health events throughout the year. The Mayor’s Back to School event prepares area students for the new school year by providing items such as backpacks, school supplies and health/vision screenings. Our clinical residents also participate in See to Succeed, a joint effort with UHCO, the City of Houston and The One Sight Foundation that collaborates with area public school districts and charter/private schools to provide high-volume walk-through services in community-based settings. UHCO’s clinic residents are vital to the success of optometry and advanced patient care. During our College “Optometry Day,” we ask the residents to sit on a panel to discuss the opportunities residencies offer to interested optometry students from around the country. Each of our residents becomes part of our family, and we wish them the very best in their journeys.
