You may have heard of ATPO but weren't sure what it was all about. I'm here to set the record straight on what ATPO can do for YOU! ATPO is the Association of Technical Personnel in Ophthalmology. They are our representation organization. It represents a diverse group of ophthalmic medical personnel including orthoptists, ophthalmic registered nurses, contact lens technicians, ophthalmic assistants, technicians and technologists, ophthalmic photographers and ophthalmic surgical assistants.
What They Do
I liken ATPO to the AMA (American Medical Association). The AMA represents physicians to their accreditation boards (i.e. the American Academy of Ophthalmology). Likewise, ATPO represents us to JCAHPO (our accreditation board). When you become an ATPO member, you are a member of an organization which promotes and supports your professional success through access to continuing education courses, discounts on training materials and courses, job boards, salary surveys and more.
Consider joining ATPO today at www.ATPO.org. Group memberships are available for the entire office for $65 per person or for an individual for $75 a year. When you sign up, you will automatically get up to 5 free CE credits and special member pricing on certification exam prep materials such as flash cards.
