Overview

The Nova Southeastern University College of Optometry Resident’s Weekend will showcase 36 outstanding optometric residents from 10 programs affiliated with NSU throughout the state of Florida. The lectures will present interesting and challenging cases encountered during their residency training in the form of rapid fire grand rounds. The topics cover a wide range of ocular conditions including binocular vision, anterior segment disease, posterior segment disease, congenital conditions and neuro-ophthalmic disease. There will also be an opportunity to interact with residents from the various programs and learn more about residency training and the opportunities residency training provides. Courses will run concurrently for 8 hours in each session as well as receiving COPE and Florida Board approval.
