ACOE Call for Comments – please reply by May 26, 2023

Apr 24, 2023 | Optometry HQ Announcements

The Accreditation Council on Optometric Education (ACOE) invites interested parties to submit comments regarding proposed changes to the ACOE’s Policy and Procedure Manual.

The ACOE reviews its Policy and Procedure Manual on at least an annual basis. The purpose of the annual review is to either validate the existing content and/or propose modifications. The Council most recently reviewed the ACOE Policy and Procedure Manual during its February 24-26, 2023 meeting and approved several proposed changes to be distributed to the communities of interest in a call for comments.

The proposed changes are described in the attached memorandum from Dr. G. Timothy Petito, ACOE Chair. Also attached are two files that contain excerpts from the ACOE Policy and Procedure Manual: (1) a Marked-up Version – proposed modifications shown with tracked changes; and (2) a Clean Version – proposed modifications shown in final draft form.

This call for comments is also published on the ACOE’s website.

The ACOE will consider comments received at its Annual Meeting scheduled June 21-24, 2023.

Please submit any comments by May 26, 2023 to
