College of Optometry Continuing Education
The Advanced Ocular Therapeutics (AOT) course is a 23-hour certificate course on systemic and injectible medications used in eye care. This course currently meets the didactic requirements for optometrists in Oregon, Washington and Alaska. After viewing all 18 segments of the course, the doctor will take a written exam over the course materials. This exam will be administered through an approved proctor site (state board offices, university, or at Pacific University College of Optometry).
A passing score would be 75 percent. We encourage you to review the complete list of video segments. Course materials were recorded August 16 – 18, 2010, during the PUCO/OOPA AOT course at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon.

An additional 7 hour Injections Workshop is required for ALASKA licensure and or those OREGON licensees who wish to be credentialed at the ATI level.
