Type of Practice

UCSF offers a clinical externship in optometry to two fourth-year students from the University of California, Berkeley, School of Optometry. The rotation will take place in the East Bay and is structured to give the student exposure to working with an Ophthalmologist and an Optometrist. The clinical rotation will involve working in primary care and urgent care. The student will participate in direct patient care under the oversight of attending faculty five days a week. Currently, the rotation will occur from Fall 1 2018 to Spring 2 2019. There will be no summer rotation.
