Description

The Internship in Biology for Vision Clinical Research is a 16-week, 3-cred it internship opportunity for students interested in pursuing careers in optome try or ophthalmology. The students are given the opportunity to partake in clinical research studies conducted by the on-site faculty mentor, Dr. Ava Bittner, O.D. , Ph.D. , as assistants as she studies patients with retinitis pigmentosa. This e ntails lab work such as analyzing retinal blood flow of RP patients and performing vision tests on normative patients to collect comparative data for the study. Outside of the lab , the undergraduate faculty internship coordinator is Dr. Mark Jaffe, DPM. The stud ents are required to maintain detailed internship journals documenting a minimum o f 8- 10 hours spent in and out of the lab. The students also submit a journal- ready research paper upon completion of the course.
