The IAOMC has 6 sections across the world (the US, Europe, China, Oceania, Latin America and India). Dr. Cauchi sits on the Board of Directors for the IAOMC helping to develop policy and guide the international field of orthokeratology. She is also the Chair of the Fellowship program. A Fellow of the Academy (FIAO) is an individual who has undergone extensive study and preparation in order to sit for the comprehensive examination testing their advanced knowledge of the field. As Chair, she has the responsibility of overseeing this testing to insure that only the most qualified individuals gain this distinguished designation.
