This week, we were happy to welcome our OSU Externs to our offices!
Columbus Ophthalmology is proud to partner with The Ohio State University College of Optometry as an externship site for fourth-year students. As part of their Primary Care Extern rotation, our students spend 13 weeks at our practice with our ODs as their clinical instructors. They are able to see a wide range of pathology and observe how several specialties work together in a positive learning environment. Our OSU Optometry Externship is also an opportunity for students to attend our continuing education programs and they are sometimes called on to give case presentations. We try to convey to our students that education never ends and the importance of the fellowship among all eye care and other healthcare providers.
Here are the latest additions to the COA Family:
Rebecca is from Charlotte, North Carolina and is fluent in Spanish. She’s completed the 180-mile Pelotonia the past couple of years and is a dog mom to her 2 beloved beagles. Her future aspirations are to fit specialty contacts and become proficient in glaucoma management.
Jenni grew up in Minster, Ohio. This past January, she married her undergrad sweetheart, Chris. She’s a recent dog mom to her adopted spaniel/border collie, Freddy. And she loves keeping busy outdoors – hiking, kayaking, and she recently climbed her first mountain.
Kim was born and raised and Columbus, Ohio. She loves to eat at new restaurants and try new food. She also loves to cook and does so frequently. You can often find her in the kitchen trying new recipes. Kim is also excited to be an aunt for the first time this September.
We love having our externs in and around our offices! Welcome, ladies!
