Optometry Australia's Student Leadership Program

Our Student Leadership Program is designed to give students the skills they need to become future leaders within the optometry profession.

The program includes a variety of coaching sessions focusing on different models of leadership, understanding the purpose of leadership and clarifying guiding values. It is designed to ensure optometry’s emerging leaders have the skills to navigate the anticipated opportunities and challenges of a changing optometry landscape.

Participants are also provided opportunities to network formally and informally with established leaders in optometry.

2022 applications closed

The 2022 Student Leadership Program has been scheduled to run on a virtual platform from Monday 7 February to Saturday 20 March 2022. It will include access to online modules, live group evening coaching sessions and is designed to provide you with access to a community of leaders within and external to optometry.

Students who have attended this program have called it “life-changing”, “invaluable” and the opportunity to be “future-ready”. We look forward to receiving your application!
