At Western University of Health Sciences’ College of Optometry, our goal is to provide significant and comprehensive continuing education that will enhance the attendee’s skills and management of clinical care in all aspects of optometry. Each of our programs is thoughtfully developed, comprised of quality content, and delivered by experienced and professional educators.
We service local, regional, and national health care providers through various learning styles – lectures, workshops, webinars, and online programs. All of our courses are approved by the California Board of Optometry or by the Council on Optometric Practitioner Education (COPE).
