Salus University Pennsylvania College of Optometry (Salus PCO) and Penn State University (Penn State) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to create an Early Assurance Admission Program, providing fourth-semester Penn State students the opportunity to apply for provisional early acceptance into the Doctor of Optometry (OD) program at Salus PCO.
As of July 1, 2017, fourth-semester Penn State students who meet certain criteria will be eligible to participate in the early application process. Accepted students will reportedly receive provisional acceptance into Salus PCO, which will be finalized once they complete their Penn State undergraduate degree requirements. And eligible students will be asked to submit a detailed application and go through an interview process.
The traditional OD program at Salus PCO reportedly includes a cohort curriculum, early clinical experience, small group learning and 16-month externships. Over the last five years, 39 Penn State undergraduate students have attended Salus PCO’s traditional OD program.
