Salus University Pennsylvania College of Optometry Fast Facts
A tradition of leadership and excellence marks the history of the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. From its inception in 1919 through today, the College has maintained and continually expanded its focus on academics. The College consistently provides the highest level of optometric and audiologic education, placing graduates at the forefront of their profession.
The distinctive features of PCO`s optometric curriculum include: a promotion of interdisciplinary integration of basic and clinical courses using a "module" approach; the immediate introduction of clinical concepts and skills during the first term of the first year, the expedited entry into patient care experiences; and a significantly expanded clinical training program. During the first 2 years, students will spend less time in traditional classroom and laboratory settings so that they can experience more independent, case-based, small group activities. In addition, students have new and early involvement in a variety of community-based patient care settings. In this innovative curriculum model, all course work is completed in 2 1/2 years, thereby allowing for 1 1/2 years of off-campus externships in a variety of private practice, hospital and group practice settings.
The Eye Institute (TEI) was established in 1978 in the West Oak Lane section of Philadelphia, and in 2010 completed renovation. In addition to its main West Oak Lane location, The Eye Institute has two satellite offices in Philadelphia, one in the East Falls section and one in the Chestnut Hill section.
