College of Optometry Continuing Education

The College of Optometry has a strong tradition of providing continuing education programs to help doctors of optometry meet their yearly requirements for license renewal. Continuing education is available through "live" programs and conferences, including those offered in destination locations such as our Island Eyes Conference in Hawai'i in January and the Victoria Conference in Victoria, B.C., in July. At those programs, we feature some of the top educators in the optometric and medical professions. The doctors earn continuing education credits and enjoy enough free time after the classes to enjoy the vacation locales with family and friends.

A favorite continuing education offering is the Glaucoma Symposium held in early January, a seven-hour program held in picturesque Woodinville, Washington. Other destination meetings include Tulalip in September and Coeur d'Alene in April.

The College of Optometry also offers an advanced online continuing education program. We are committed to offering an educational package containing the most important topics pertaining to optometry. All our online courses are COPE approved and available for immediate viewing.

Please plan ahead.  Pacific University will be on a holiday break from Wednesday, December 24, through Sunday, January 4.  Rush orders will not be processed during that time.  The certificates for courses taken during that time period will show the date the course exams were taken and passed.  We will resume regular processing of courses on Monday, January 5, 2015.
