Abstract The Diplomate Program is designed to recognize Academy members who have achieved an enhanced level of clinical or research knowledge and competence in the area of binocular vision and perception. The Clinical Diplomate process involves submitting and having accepted five (5) written clinical case reports, passing a comprehensive written examination, practical clinical examination and oral examination. The Section also has a new Research Diplomate program to recognize individuals who contribute significantly to the field of binocular vision and perception but who are not in clinical practice and do not provide patient care of any kind. The Research Diplomate process involves application, review of application to determine if the criteria of "significant contributions" is met, submission andacceptance of a lengthy scientific paper and passing an oral examination focused on the candidate's expertise and general knowledge of topics within the scope of interest of the Binocular Vision and Perception Section. An application and candidate's guide can be obtained by contacting the American Academy of Optometry, 6110 Executive Blvd., Suite 506, Rockville, MD 20852, (301) 984-1441, Fax: (301) 984-4737, AAOptom@aol.com, http://www.aaopt.org.
