IPE is an innovative approach for preparing students of different disciplines to work together as a team to deliver the best possible patient care. By promoting greater communication, safety and quality of care, an interprofessional team-based approach delivers better patient outcomes.
When you attend the Southern California School of Optometry at Marshall B. Ketchum University, you’ll step into a legacy of clinical and educational excellence that started back in 1904 by our founder and namesake.
Low student-teacher ratios (8:1), combined with collaborative community service outings, give the SPAS program a collegial, family-like atmosphere, where faculty knows you by name, and provides the one-to-one attention you need to be successful.
We seek to reimagine the future of health care education.
The mission of Marshall B. Ketchum University is to educate caring, inspired health care professionals who are prepared to deliver collaborative, patient-centric health care in an interprofessional environment.
