ACOE Standards Review - Optometric Residency Programs

Accreditation Council on Optometric Education (ACOE) Comprehensive Standards Review - Professional Optometric Degree Programs

The Accreditation Council on Optometric Education (ACOE) is launching its Comprehensive Standards Review process associated with Optometric Residency Programs.

This survey gives members of the communities of interest the opportunity to provide input. The Council greatly appreciates and will thoroughly consider input received as it develops a draft version of revised Accreditation Standards. The draft Standards are anticipated to be distributed broadly to members of the communities of interest for public comment in 2023.

Instructions: We suggest you allot approximately 45 minutes to complete this survey. The survey is organized into three primary sections.
  • Section 1 – collection of demographic information
  • Section 2 – detailed review of the ACOE Standards with opportunity to evaluate the criticality and clarity of each Standard as well as to comment on gaps and areas of redundancy
  • Section 3 – seeks to gain input on any other areas the Council should consider addressing within the Standards
