As a SIG we will benefit our members by, organizing and improve communications between optometrists at different Academic Medical Centers. We will offer assistance with practice management, teaching tools, and case reporting. Our interest group is will promote the field of Optometry in Medical Centers, like hospitals and care centers.

Mission Statement
