Optometric Clinical Seminars at the VA

The Optometric Clinical Seminars are conducted as a series of lectures presented by members of the residency faculty and staff at the Veterans Affairs of Greater Los Angeles. This interactive series is designed to present the essential core of optometric and clinical knowledge in a manner that enhances understanding and retention. Each section of the Optometric Clinical Seminars course curriculum contains related aspects of basic and clinical science, designed for the practicing optometrist.

The Optometric Clinical Seminars serve primarily as a gateway for optometric residency training. All SCCO-affiliated residents are invited to attend the seminars. Limited seating is also available to outside optometrists wishing to attend. If you are interested in attending, please visit the CE Registration Portal to reserve your seat.
