Advanced Eye Care aims to provide students with values, attitudes, knowledge and skills in eye care that will enable them to provide effective and comprehensive eye care services. This effectiveness will be evaluated with respect to the whole person, thus emphasizing not only academic outcomes, but also outcomes of patient centered, holistic and culturally sensitive eye care. Such an approach to eye care provision will likely more effectively reduce the burden of blindness in the Pacific region. The course is a 38 week course composing of four componenets. The components will be horizontally integrated throughout the year.
