Managed by students, the ICOPro mentorship program connects students seeing to learn more about what it’s like to practice optometry in the real world with alumni who wish to share their expertise. Through mentorships, students can learn about the realistic costs and benefits of the many career options available to them, such as post-graduate residency programs, military service, and corporate, commercial and private practices. Additionally, students can gain expertise in practice management and learn more about the business aspects of optometry. The time commitment and manner in which the program is carried out is flexible, depending on the availability of the student and the alumnus.
