Residency Programs

Completing a residency in optometry is a unique and invaluable experience! The rich rewards gained from the year of advanced clinical training under an experienced mentor serve to enhance career opportunities and add to the level of confidence the resident has when beginning his/her post-residency career. Applying for a residency position is an easy process through the Optometry Residency Match (ORMatch).

If you are applying through ORMatch for the 2022 Match, please check each residency site’s website for vaccination requirement information. You can find a list of residency programs and their website/contact information in the ASCO Residency Directory
