Call for Applications: Douglas Hopkins Residency Award
Residency training is becoming an increasingly important aspect of optometric training. A post-OD residency program significantly advances a graduate's preparation as an eye-care provider and provides additional experiences in instruction and scholarship. Many schools and colleges of optometry now require residency training as a basic prerequisite for new clinical faculty.
The Douglas Hopkins Residency Award is intended to promote the practice and development of the field of Primary Care Optometry by providing incentive and support to talented optometric residents who demonstrate a passion and commitment to practice, research, and education in primary care.
Eligibility and Award
Any optometrist currently serving (2012 – 2013) in a primary care/family practice residency through an accredited school, college of optometry or veterans administration facility may apply. Anyone who has yet to begin a residency or who has already completed their residency by the deadline is ineligible.
The Douglas Hopkins Residency Award is $2,000 plus one $750 travel fellowship to attend the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Optometry in November 2014 in Denver, contingent on the individual sitting for their fellowship exam. One award will be granted.
The deadline for this award is March 28, 2014.
For additional information contact Tracy Kitts, Foundation Coordinator, at: 321-710-3936 or AOF@aaoptom.org.
