Ding. Ding. Ding. Challenge.
I will have to demand to see proof since your assertation goes against everything any current ODs thought process holds to be reality in 2012.
Lets see, SUNY graduates 80 ODs per year. So by your claim, 20 go to work in commercial, (about) 20 go to work in private practice and the other half of the class, all FORTY of them find work teching for an ophthalmologist (which is about all a newly graduated OD is good for in an OMD office if truth be told---a good COT will be able to scope and refract better than you in the beginning).
I will not go so far as say you are lying. But if true, SUNY graduates are unlike every other optometry school in the country where likely upwards of 75% enter commercial practice right after graduation (and that
is a educated guess on my part).
So where can I find this breakdown? Is it on their webstite?
