Drs. James Caldwell and  John J. Crozier  – affectionately known as “Dr. John” around the halls of the University’s Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) – were having lunch one day when Dr. John suggested the two go down to the old campus and “go shopping.”

It was 1998 and PCO had recently moved from the Oak Lane location – the “old campus,” which still includes The Eye Institute now - to the newly purchased Elkins Park campus.

The introduction of electronic medical records (EMRs) into the doctor’s responsibilities has challenged healthcare providers to find a way to keep the focus on the patients.

Since the implementation of EMR technology, better collection of data and continuity of care has occurred, but care should be taken, according to University president Dr. Michael Mittelman, not to let the technology infringe on the personal care of the patient.

If you can’t be with your family, spending Christmas Eve at the Taj Mahal could be considered the next best thing. That’s just what some students in the University’s  Osborne College of Audiology (OCA)  did on the second leg of an international clinical experience trip to India at the end of last year. Three third-year students joined Dr. Jenny Rajan, OCA assistant professor, for clinical training at the National Institute of Speech and Hearing (NISH) in Trivandrum, India.
