Calling all students, residents and new doctors! This is your chance to network with doctors of optometry who have been exactly where you are today.

And even better, breakfast will be served!   Seating is limited, so sign-up today

AOA+ Popup

AOA+ Pop-Up Sessions

These aren't your typical classroom educational courses (and not virtual!)—AOA+ Pop-Up Sessions are fast-paced, interactive and cover a wide-range of topics that you won't always find in school. In the past, Pop-Ups have looked at very practical concerns in starting an optometric career, such as work-life balance and business acumen, to more clinically in-depth topics, such as establishing a sports and performance vision practice or pediatric care workshops. Stay tuned for this year's selection of AOA+ Pop-Up Sessions.
