The Management Development Program, also know as MDP, is not just a program but an experience. Through live instruction as well as online components, MDP is designed to help practice, office and optical managers gain the confidence and business expertise they need to positively impact their eye care practice. This comprehensive 6-month experience combines live instruction with distance learning, personalized coaching and project-based learning initiatives to teach people skills and business strategies that managers can use to immediately improve practice performance.
