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 clinical instruction and academia. Many schools and colleges of optometry now require residency training as a basic prerequisite for new clinical faculty.
The Rhonda Robinson Contact Lens Residency Award is intended to promote the practice and development of the field of contact lenses by providing incentive and support to talented optometric residents who demonstrate a passion and commitment to practice, research, and education.
The Rhonda Robinson Contact Lens Residency Award recipient will receive a $2,000 award and $750 travel grant to the Academy meeting.
