Inter American University of Puerto Rico
Class of 2023I am part of the 2023 class of the Inter American University of Puerto Rico School of Optometry. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and I came across Optometrystudents.com when I was searching for information about Optometry Residencies. The lack of information about life as a student optometrist aspiring for residency made me want to be part of the OS team. The topics I gravitate most to are molecular biology, clinical optometry, and the search for efficient study strategies for graduate students.
