Recent Graduate Evening:  Optometry outside the practice

Recent Graduate members of OV/SA are cordially invited to attend our Recent Graduate Evening: Optometry Outside the Practice.

Now that you are well and truly optometrists, it is not unusual to start thinking about what else you can do with your optometry degree, apart from seeing patients in practice.

OV/SA have arranged an evening especially for you to support your career planning needs. We have organized for you to have corporate photographs to be taken by a professional photographer to support your online professional presence and also hear from optometrists not in practice who have careers where having an optometry degree helped them to get them there.

This event is free and for Recent Graduate members only.

Meet your speakers:
