JAN. 29, 2003 | The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) will hold an open house for its Ophthalmic Medical Technology Program from 10:30 a.m. until noon on Friday, Feb. 21.
The open house will be at the Harvey and Bernice Jones Eye Institute on the UAMS campus in Little Rock .
The two-year Ophthalmic Medical Technology (OMT) Program accepts students after two years of pre-professional college preparation, and combines lectures, laboratory lessons, and clinical teaching with supervised rotations at Jones Eye Institute and Arkansas Children’s Hospital. The program is in the UAMS College of Health Related Professions.
OMT graduates are eligible to take certification tests to become certified ophthalmic medical technologists (COMTs). As COMTs, graduates can work in general ophthalmology or specialize and can give lectures and workshops in professional meetings.
