Session Information
This is a different take on professional development for optometrists. This talk will look at optometrists and the importance of their role working with ophthalmologists in public and private settings. This series was made with hopes that it can attract early career optometrists to listen to their peers about other modes of practice “outside the box” of consulting in private practice. It would be great to inspire early career optometrists and make them aware of the other opportunities that are out there if they want a more diverse career.

Venue:  N Block, QEII Medical Centre, Nedlands, WA

Registration OPEN – In Person Only – No Zoom

Dr Sae Kyung Cho

After graduating from optometry at the University of Auckland, she had dedicated more than a decade working as an optometrist in retail practices, ophthalmology clinics and as a clinical supervisor for optometry students. Realising she wanted to further her knowledge, Sae went back to the University of Auckland to complete a PhD on the development of the retina in chick embryos. Following this, Sae stayed in research and also worked as clinical optometrist for a number of years before realising this was not challenging enough and subsequently back to study the Doctor of Medicine at the University of Notre Dame, which she completed in 2018. Sae currently works in the ophthalmologist department at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and as a medical doctor in the after-hours GP service.
