What does AOSA do for me?
The AOSA Annual Conference and the AOA Annual Congress has combined to create Optometry's Meeting®. This is an excellent complement to every optometry student's education. In a casual, relaxed atmosphere, students benefit from continuing education, practice management pearls, opportunities to network with future employers, business partners and fellow students.
Members enjoy reduced registration fees to Optometry's Meeting® that includes AOSA education courses at no charge to registered members with the exception of the NBEO review ($10 per course). Registered optometry students may register for and attend OD continuing education courses for $5 per optometric course hour.
Social events and opportunities to network with ODs and fellow students abound at Optometry's Meeting®.
Each year there are different benefits for you. Valuable tools and resources are supplied by national organizations and distributed by the AOSA trustees at each school. Click here to find out more about member benefits.
AOSA keeps you informed about what’s going on in the profession and at other optometry schools through e-mail, AOSA Foresight, and other publications released throughout the year.
