Pat Segu, OD, FAAO named ABO Ambassador for UHCO

Posted On: 04/24/2018


The American Board of Optometry (ABO) has launched a new school Ambassador program, tapping the expertise of its own Diplomates to educate students, residents and faculty ODs about the organization’s voluntary Board Certification program.

UHCO is pleased to announce that Dr. Pat Segu has been selected as Ambassador for our institution.  This is a two-year volunteer position designed to foster awareness of the Board Certification and Maintenance of Certification processes, and their benefits for ODs and patients. 

Dr. Segu will serve as a Board Certification mentor to students, residents and faculty ODs, presenting at various meetings and communicating ideas and feedback to ABO’s Board of Directors.
The American Board of Optometry’s Board Certification process is based on an American Board of Medical Specialties model.  It is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, and its Maintenance of Certification process is CMS-approved.
