Master of Optometry (M.Optom.) programme at NSHM focuses toward student centred learning methods in providing advanced level of knowledge in all areas of optometry, facilitate practical and clinical exposures for skill training and develop key attitude for professional eye care practice. The current programme enables students to apply recent research to clinical practice, thus, improving their competency as primary eye care professionals and making them a lifelong learner by imbibing evidence based practice in Optometry.
NSHM is one of the prominent colleges in India to offer M.Optom. that provides evidence based practice (EBP) in optometry along with Problem based learning (PBL) and case-based learning (CBL) to improve clinical decision making ability of our students. Students will have the opportunity to practice Eye Examination in Simulated Set-ups, attend weekly seminars and continuous medical education and learn from the industry experts. NSHM conducts study tour of tertiary eye hospitals where students learn about their ophthalmic examination techniques. Students are encouraged to participate in community eye screening camps to strengthen their knowledge and skills.
From the Academic Session 2021-22 a select list of full-time and regular MAKAUT degree programs, mainly at the post-graduate levels shall be offered in Blended Learning (BL) Mode
