We offer two different optometry residency programs; Optometry with Ocular Disease Focus and Optometry in Ocular Disease with emphasis on Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation.
The primary goal is to deliver education that exposes residents to cutting-edge technology in Gundersen's highly respected Ophthalmology and Optometry departments and in a multidisciplinary healthcare setting. In addition to clinical duties, the resident:
- Lecture at the annual Dr. Ken Purdue Optometric Review, Indiana University School of Optometry 4th Year Case Conference, and national meetings
- Participate in and lead Journal Club Discussion
- Conduct a quality improvement or research project with the help of our Medical Research Department
- Attend continuing education conferences
The one-year programs are affiliated with Indiana University School of Optometry. Selection for the residency positions occurs via the ORMatch website and graduates from all optometry schools are eligible to apply.
