Continuing Education is one of OOPA’s primary member services. We continually look for ways to be innovative, market driven and groundbreaking in the way in which OOPA members can access the best Optometry specific education available.
Each year, OOPA has at least three major educational events, as well as smaller customized programs throughout the year. Our annual events include:
Third Party / Practice Management Seminar (February)
This educational program offers national and regional expertise to Optometric Physicians and Para-Optometric staff in a range of topics and formats. While the majority of the educational tracks do not meet OBO requirements for CE, several usually do (e.g., legal, ethics, CPR recertification, etc.)
Oregon State CE Conference
Each year in a different destination, OOPA hosts a 2-3 day CE event with national and regional expertise exclusively to Optometric Physicians.
Oregon is one of the thirteen western states that comprise the Great Western Council of Optometry. GWCO is the only consortium of state Optometric Associations that returns the revenues from their annual CE event to the states based on attendance. OOPA strongly encourages its members to attend GWCO and participate in OOPA membership meetings at these annual events.
