Ophthalmic Scribe Course


OSC Course Application

Thank you for interest in the online Ophthalmic Scribe Course! This is an “at your own pace” scribe course encompassing all the essential subjects to prepare you for the OSC exam. It is designed to not only make you knowledgeable in basic ophthalmology, but it will also make you well versed with general medical terminology. There is a quiz after each subject completion, a mini module exam, and a final exam. Every lecture is pre-recorded with PowerPoint presentations that are accessible to you. The full course tuition is $100 and the course will be available for 3 months after enrollment.

Prior medical or ophthalmological background is preferred but not required. Successful completion of this program does NOT automatically result in certification and does NOT result in college credits. Upon completion of the course, the student will take the national Ophthalmic Scribe Certification examination. National certification is administered by the Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology (JCAHPO). Students are responsible for making sure they complete all certification requirements. Please see www.jcahpo.org for more details regarding certification.
