Applications open for Berkeley’s Opto-Camp

Open to all, the goal of Berkeley’s Opto-Camp is to provide pre-health science/pre-optometry majors, especially those who are underrepresented in the profession and/or first-generation college students, with in-depth information about Optometry as a career track and to prepare attendees to be successful applicants to optometry school.

The public health threat posed by COVID-19 has kept UC Berkeley from being able to hold the camp in person this summer. However, the camp is free to all those selected to attend. This year’s camp will run two weeks mid-July: 

Week 1: July 12-16
Panels, workshops, and group activities.

Week 2: July 19-23
1:1 Advising Appointments and Opto-Camp project competition.

Learn more and apply on the Opto-Camp website here.

The deadline to apply is May 14th at 11:59pm PST.
