This event, hosted by the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry, offers a great opportunity to learn more about optometry programs across the country and have all your questions answered in one convenient (virtual) space!
When it comes to life after optometry school, it's difficult to know where to begin. How do you find a position? Should you consider a residency? What does it take to own your own practice? Never fear: SCO is here to answer all of your questions about life as an O.D. and how we help students make a plan for their future. During this webinar, representatives of the Hayes Center for Practice Excellence will give a brief overview of the life of a newly certified optometrist -- from completing a resume to pursuing practice ownership -- and discuss how SCO creates a personal roadmap for each students' goals. If you are interested in SCO and would like to learn more about life after optometry school, be sure to tune in!
