Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions will start its doctor of optometry program in the summer and is now accepting optometry student applications for the 2023 cohort.

“RMU’s Doctor of Optometry program is the newest optometry program in the United States,” said Dr. Adam Hickenbotham, founding dean of the optometry college. “Optometrists are America’s primary eye healthcare providers who are on the frontline of eye and vision care. As such, RMU has designed an innovative, advanced and student-focused program with in-person hands-on clinical training to help our optometry graduates provide outstanding healthcare.”

The program has received preliminary accreditation from the Accreditation Council on Optometric Education. As such, RMU’s College of Optometry is authorized to move forward with the doctor of optometry program beginning in May 2023. Students may begin to apply.

“For the past 24 years, Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions has been advancing knowledge and advancing healthcare as an accredited exclusive graduate healthcare education institution,” said Dr. Richard P. Nielsen, founding president and CEO of RMU. “Our new College of Optometry is another significant RMU milestone that will develop the next generation of optometrists in our high-tech facilities using modern medical curriculum by the nation’s renowned optometric faculty. RMU is honored to expand the availability of optometry education for students across the nation.”
