• Berkeley Optometry Program Overview
• Admissions and Application Workshop

As a 2015 conference attendee, you will have the opportunity to learn more about UC Berkeley’s optometry program, familiarize yourself with the admissions process, meet current Berkeley Optometry students, receive advice from practicing optometrists, and much more! This year’s conference will be free of charge, and housing accommodations with members of Foresight may be made on a first come, first serve basis if you or your group need a place to stay.

Please email the Fall Conference Co-Chairs, Michelle and Irene, at foresight.conference@gmail.com if you have any questions.
