Practice Opportunities Symposium...


Practice Opportunities Symposium Celebrates 20 Years

ICO students are just one week away from the biggest learning and networking event of 2017. The annual Practice Opportunities Symposium is celebrating its 20th year on Friday, April 7 at 1 p.m. Over 40 ODs and optometric professionals will be sharing their experiences through interactive panels. Multiple modes of practice will be represented. Exhibitors and recruiters will also be present to share their latest products, services, and practice opportunities.

This year, in conjunction with our practice management curriculum, attendance to POS is mandatory for first year students. Every student at ICO is encouraged to participate. There is much to learn, and a casual conversation today may turn into a practice opportunity tomorrow! If attending, please dress in clinic attire and bring plenty of business cards.

This year’s panel topics include:

  • Introduction to Practice
  • Private Practice
  • Corporate Practice
  • Specialty/Non-Traditional Practice
  • Practice Management
  • Residency
  • Externship Preceptors
  • Canadian Practitioners

To ask questions of our panelists, offer feedback, or share your experiences, use hashtag #20YearsofPOS on social media. Several panels will be recorded and released as exclusive podcasts after the event. Thank you to our sponsors, and to the ICO alumni and friends coming to Chicago to help our students succeed!
