Student programs in Victoria

Optometry Victoria offers a number of popular sessions for students throughout the year including:

Getting Registered

The ‘Getting Registered’ event allows us to provide you with practical information about the process of becoming a registered optometrist, obtaining a Medicare provider number and a PBS prescriber number.

Careers Expo

Meet and chat with future employers from across Victoria at Optometry Victoria’s O=MEGA19 conference. The conference is held in July.

Immediate Graduates dinner

This event is held twice a year (April and October) for newly graduated optometrists and is a fantastic opportunity for you to get to know your state organisation representatives, meet fellow colleagues and prepare for your new career.

Please contact Optometry Victoria South Australia for more information on any of these events via email at or phone (03) 9652 9100.
