One of our goals at Chicago College of Optometry is to ensure that our students get the most out of their rotation experiences, which also means that our preceptors have the most up to date resources available to them. Below you will find resources that will provide you with the guidance and support that you need to be successful as one of our preceptors- current or prospective. Please bookmark this page, so you can access it whenever necessary.
