Do aspiring optometrists need to complete a residency program like that of medical students?

I was wondering about optometrists and their career paths. #school #graduate-school #optometry #residency

Thank you comment icon It is said that residency is not REQUIRED, however it is strongly recommended. Residency means experience, which is good. If i remember correctly there is an article that Berkeley's College of Optometry wrote on the topic of residency (saying the pros and cons of doing residency), that is something that would interest you.

A passing score on the Optometry Admission Test (OAT) is required to be considered for acceptance into an optometry program. This exam, conducted by the Association of Schools and College of Optometry, measures basic academic ability and understanding of scientific knowledge.
