Dr. Angel Simmons Promoted to Director of Fourth Year Clinical Rotations
Recently, Assistant Clinical Professor Dr. Angel Simmons was deservedly promoted to Director of Fourth Year Clinical Rotations. Dr. Simmons, formerly Faculty Coordinator of Admissions, is looking forward to her her new responsibilities. “I am really excited about taking on the role as Director of 4th Year Clinical Rotations. As a previous student and member of the Admissions team, I have seen just how wonderful our 4th year program has become. While our program is great, I am looking to move the program to the next level. There are some exciting changes coming in the future; I am looking to provide more opportunities to explore the different modalities within the profession. This will come with linking our students with some of the most prestigious OD's in the country. There will be focus areas in specialty contact lens, advanced vision therapy, sports vision, private practice, low vision, and ocular disease. In order to ensure a quality experience for our students, each site will be fully vetted by myself or a member of our externship team. There are some additional educational materials that are being implemented to enhance the treatment/management skills of our students, while strengthening the role of the preceptor/intern relationship.” Congratulations Dr. Simmons!
