The Future Of Optometric Education

This website will provide you with an overview of Deakin Optometry’s Clinical Residential Placement Program. Included, is what it means to become a clinical supervisor, the benefits to you and what our students are capable of. The program will strengthen your involvement in our great profession and ensure the future of sustainable eye care in Australia.

All of our students have worked very hard to reach this final stage of their studies and upon commencing placements they really are optometrists-in-training. The key to each residential placement is immersion in the world of real-life, day-to-day optometry.

This naturally includes activities both inside and outside of the consulting room.
