There are several popular student and resident events in development just for you! The Academy and its sponsors will be bringing the Luxottica Student Welcome Reception, Essilor Academic Challenge, and the Residency and Graduate Program Fair to you virtually. There will also be designated student-only exhibit hall hours so you can network and explore the products and technologies available.

Are you an OD student who will graduate in 2021 or later? Sign up for the Student Fellowship program! The Student Fellowship program is a great opportunity for you to engage in cutting edge knowledge and technology through lectures, posters, special events and much more! You will gain exposure to the Academy and take your first step forward in learning more about becoming a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry (FAAO) after graduation. See the full list of requirements and learn how to participate in the program on the Academy website Student Fellowship page.

Residents Day will continue virtually on Saturday, October 10. The Resident Papers session will be held 8–10am and the Resident Posters session will be 12–2pm. Tune in to hear from current residents as they present their cases and research projects. Residents, be sure to keep your eyes open for an invitation to participate in the Resident/Practitioner Networking Event!
