With IDOC, you never stop learning.
IDOC events are designed to inform, educate and inspire, whether you’re an OD just starting out in private practice or have been in business for years. We offer a year-round schedule of national and regional meetings, open to both ODs and their staff, that keep attendees on the forefront of clinical and industry developments, the best way to drive growth and stay competitive.

Just as important, IDOC events are powerful networking forums, helping our members and their staff connect and collaborate in new ways. Drawing attendees from across the country, our meetings encourage the open exchange of ideas and experiences, valuable peer-to-peer learning independent ODs can’t find on their own.

IDOC Study Groups
Our regional Study Group meetings offer independent eye care professionals a unique opportunity to network and connect with their local community in a small-scale, informal learning environment. Attendees are invited to explore topics of special interest to independent practitioners—from workplace productivity to winning retail strategies-and leave with clearly defined action steps that can be put to work right away. Study Group Meetings are offered both in a live setting with a sponsored dinner at a local, upscale restaurant, as well as in a virtual setting over video conference, depending on location. Join your local Study Group Meeting, and you will join a powerful community of local independent private practice doctors.
IDOC Study Groups are led by IDOC Member Directors.
