A new two-year advanced residency program in Neuro-Ophthalmic Disease is now being offered biennially at The Eye Institute of Salus University (TEI). Residents will work directly with optometrists who focus on neuro-ophthalmic disease at TEI, receiving intense training in examination, diagnosis, treatment and management.
In announcing the new program, Dr. Lori Grover, Dean of the university’s Pennsylvania College of Optometry, stated, “We are extremely pleased to have developed a first-of-its-kind two-year residency training program for optometrists. Thanks to the efforts of Salus/PCO faculty members Dr. Kelly Malloy, Director of the Neuro-Ophthalmic Disease Service, and Dr. Erin Draper, two residents will learn the intricacies of neuro-ophthalmic disease under their mentorship.”
Also: Dr. Thomas L. Lewis, Salus University Professor and President Emeritus and former member of the ASCO Board of Directors for more than two decades, was recently profiled in Primary Care Optometry News as a “pioneer of interprofessional education.” Dr. Lewis was also the first recipient of ASCO’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009, which recognized his more than 30 years as an educator dedicated to advancing optometry’s role in eye and vision care.
