Regis College and NECO renewed their affiliation offering students entry into a Doctor of Optometry program after successful completion of 3 years of a pre-medicine or pre-veterinary medicine program at Regis College.

The affiliation agreement represents a mutual, ongoing commitment to provide students with exceptional educational and career opportunities while eliminating one year of tuition and shortening the time to become a practicing optometrist.

“Our partnership with New England College of Optometry offers Regis students a pathway to a rewarding career as an optometrist and complements our existing robust graduate nursing and health sciences program offerings,” said Regis President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN.

“We are proud to reaffirm our commitment with Regis College and hope to attract students to the field who might not otherwise have considered a doctor of optometry degree,” says Erik Weissberg, OD, FAAO, vice president and dean of academic affairs at NECO. “It’s an exciting time to join the profession that is responding rapidly to the changes in technology and other advances in the field of vision.”
