Skills That Cannot Be Learned in the Classroom

Residency site supervisors for the Southern College of Optometry received this lovely certificate and letter in the mail the other day, and I wanted to share this classy touch with you from SCO and in particular, Drs. Campbell and Ervin.  The letter reads as follows:

“During this season of Thanksgiving, we wanted to express to our Adjunct Faculty our appreciation and thanks for all you do for our residents.  Your dedication to educating, mentoring, and expanding their scope of skills is one of the most valuable parts of our curriculum.

The faculty of Southern College of Optometry do a tremendous job in teaching the didactic portion of what is needed to become a successful optometrist.  However, you show them firsthand what day in and day out optometry involves.  Students learn through observation and hands on patients care.  Your guidance in analyzing differential diagnoses, running a successful practice/clinic, working to the full scope of licensure in your state and your involvement in your community, as well as, optometry as a profession, are skills that cannot be learned in the classroom.  For that, we are grateful.

Please accept the enclosed certificate of Recognition for your work and dedication as Adjunct Faculty of Southern College of Optometry as a small token of our appreciation and thankfulness.”
