During the 12-month period of the program, each resident receives a salary. Some programs offer paid health, term life, and professional liability insurance. All residents attend the Anterior Segment Laser Certification and Surgical Procedures for the Optometric Physician courses. Several of the residencies offer extensive experience in ocular disease management, laser surgical procedures, optometric surgical procedures, fluorescein angiography, and other advanced clinical procedures.
