What You Should Know — Optometry Admissions and SCCO

Have You Considered An Optometric Residency?

Article Hosted on ASCO’s Blog: Eye On Optometry

More and more, prospective students are considering adding residency training to their optometric education plan. Optometric residency is a one-year post-doctoral program where the resident sees patients in the areas of Cornea & Contact Lenses, Low Vision Rehabilitation, Ocular Disease, Primary Care, or Pediatric Optometry/Vision Therapy. This concentrated training increases a new OD grad’s marketability as residency-trained optometrists are a sought after addition to a group practice or HMO professional staff.

Here’s an article hosted on ASCO’s blog, “Have You Considered An Optometry Residency?,” which features various profiles of optometry students who opted for to complete the one-year residencies.  Featured is Dr. Valerie Lam, an SCCO Alumnae, who completed a 2012-2013 Pediatric Optometry and Vision Therapy residency. Other residency trained optometrists are featured as well.

Here is an Optometry Admissions Blog article written last year that still has topic relevance, “What’s New in Residency Education 2016,” featuring our own SCCO residency program with highlights.

In preparation for your interview for optometry school, it never hurts to know as much as you possibly can about residency training.
