Academic Medical Center Optometrists (AMCO) SIG
As a SIG we benefit our members by organizing and improving communications between optometrists at different academic medical centers. In addition to promoting the profession of optometry, we offer assistance with practice management, teaching tools, and case reporting.
As providers of optometry practicing with the highest standards expected by our communities, we come together in a spirit of collegiality to support one another, serve as a resource for those within and outside the SIG, and provide a bridge for common interests between all providers of healthcare for the greater good of the patients we serve.

Our next webinar will be a discussion on negotiating your position at AMCs. We will start with general guidelines to assess your role in the department and how to get more support or resources. We will then ask for members to offer practical advice on how they navigated the process at different institutions. If you have any ideas or resources you’d like to present, please let us know so we can add them to the agenda.
