Session Information: A unique approach on professional development for optometrists. This talk will look at optometry’s role in rural and remote settings in Western Australia. The Outside the Box series was made with hopes for both aspiring and early career optometrists to listen to their peers about modes of practice outside the box. With much aspiration for a fruitful and fulfilling career, the goal for these talks is to inspire optometrists to search for career opportunities in optometry outside of the established environment of private consulting.
