“Empowering students to thrive as doctors of optometry.”
The American Optometric Student Association (AOSA) is the student organization branch of the American Optometric Association (AOA) representing over 7,000 optometry students in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. AOSA is committed to advocating for the optometric profession, enhancing the education of all optometry students, and improving the vision and ocular health of the public. As a PCO student, you will be automatically enrolled as an AOSA member. Membership benefits begin as a first year and continue through graduation. A few of the AOSA’s events at PCO include the annual AOSA Quiz Bowl, Candy Grams, Info Night, Legucate-Me, Optometry Cares 5K walk/run fundraiser, and attending Optometry’s Meeting.
