Philanthropy is a core characteristic of the Berkeley-trained optometrist. Forty-nine percent of our graduates have donated back to the school to realize excellence in patient care, facilities enhancement, and student scholarships. The compassion and dedication of our alumni is self-evident. Good doctors heal, great doctors give back.
