About

The MS and OD China Program is a unique joint degree program between Wenzhou Medical University (WMU) and the New England College of Optometry (NECO).

Overview

Students who complete the program earn two degrees: the master of science and doctor of optometry degrees. The MS and OD China curriculum offered by New England College of Optometry combines the AODP curriculum and the Master of Science degree with joint clinical externships that include six months in Boston-based rotations and six months at Wenzhou Medical University.

In November, 2000, WMU and NECO initiated a unique joint-degree program to develop a cadre of knowledgeable and skilled optometrists in China who could assume the highest positions in China’s medical education and health care system. The program’s goal is to develop a core group of individuals trained in optometry and educated as scientists to advance the quality of eye care and the development of educational programs within the field of optometry in China.

Graduates of the MS/OD China Program have also received grants from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, The Natural Science Foundation of Zhejiang Province, and the Ministry of Health in Beijing. They have been elected to the People’s National Congress, lectured nationally, and have provided significant continuing education in the area of contact lenses for the ophthalmic industry.

Why Neco ? 

At New England College of Optometry, we prepare future doctors for the complexities of practicing in the real world by providing students with great professional experiences. Whether it be through comprehensive patient care in team-based health delivery models, intense cultural immersion within our extensive clinical network, research focused on improving patients’ lives, or debating public policy for eye care, we are educating and preparing the future leaders of the profession. Throughout their education, our students make an immediate and lasting impact on the community while serving their patients.
