NSUOCO Residency Program
Why Pursue a Residency?
An optometric residency will vastly increase your clinical experience and self-confidence, as well as the scope & depth of knowledge in the emphasis areas of your choosing. There is an increasing demand for residency-trained optometrists in careers within schools and colleges of optometry, referral/surgery centers, the US Department of Veterans Affairs, and more. Expand your career opportunities and marketability with post-graduate residency certification!
The relationships formed with mentors, faculty, co-residents, optometric legislative representatives, industry partners, students, ophthalmologists and other health care professionals are invaluable and often last a lifetime.
Interested in providing continuing medical education at national meetings, potentially serving as a future leader in professional optometric associations, or supervising/teaching optometry students? Would you like to pursue fellowship in the AAO or ABO Board Certification? Residencies enable opportunities like these and open doors!
