About the course
Over the past decade, the optometric profession has witnessed dynamic changes and growth in global health care delivery systems. This phenomenon has been accompanied by enormous advances in technology and the health sciences. It has impacted how we work, how we communicate, and how we learn. Technology has touched every field imaginable, including clinical optometry and vision science. While advances in information technology have simplified the exchange of information, it has also increased the sheer volume of data available and has made managing information more complicated than ever before.In response to these widespread changes, NSU College of Optometry has developed a two-year, 45-credit Master of Science Program in Clinical Vision Research (CVR). This program is designed to assist optometrists, optometric educators, optometric students, as well as other health-care professionals extend their career opportunities by developing and enhancing their ability to perform clinical vision research. It has both online and on campus components. Faculty members are nationally recognized scholars, with expertise in teaching, research, and scholarship. The program includes a thesis. The thesis is based on a research project designed according to the students interest. Each student has an adviser who is an expert in the students area of interest and guides the students thesis project. This innovative program includes curricula leading to a Graduate Certificate in CVR and a Master of Science in CVR.Accommodating the need and desire of most health care professionals to remain in their present location and employment and, at the same time, draw upon a nationally recognized faculty, the CVR program offers a unique opportunity through NSU College of Optometrys state-of-the-art, Web-based distance learning technology.
