Clinical Residencies

Residency programs are available at the University of Houston College of Optometry and at external sites. These programs are designed to provide optometrists with advanced clinical training and knowledge. While the program focus is on direct patient care, scholarly and didactic activities also contribute to the development of the advanced clinical competencies.

Residency programs are located in Houston, Dallas and Ft Worth, TX, Phoenix, AZ, and Denver, CO.
