One of my greatest goals is that my interns/future doctors would understand that they are looking at a whole person and not just their eyes. In any clinical rotation, they can learn to not just take care of someone's vision, but to also take into account their other medical and social issues with an interdisciplinary approach. They may be the only friendly face that the patient sees that day, or they may need that extra push to take care of their diabetes.
NECO has many opportunities for students to engage in research. Depending on their level of interest and experience, students can complete a master’s degree in vision science with a faculty mentor, participate in an intensive summer research program, or work for a few hours each week in a laboratory.
You understand that being a doctor-in-training means to behave as a doctor everyday - not just when you interact with patients, and not just when you wear these special white coats that you will be handed today - but each moment of your lives.
