Undergraduate education

We deliver an undergraduate course covering diseases of the posterior eye to third year optometry and vision science students through the School of Optometry and Vision Science at UNSW. This  course serves as an introduction to ocular disease and imaging, and provides the foundation for disease diagnosis which is further expanded upon by the fourth and fifth year clinical optometry program.

In their fifth year, we welcome the entire cohort of UNSW optometry students for a 6 week rotation at the Centre, where they have an opportunity to learn from our experienced clinicians and consolidate their knowledge of ocular disease. Students conduct clinical tests, write patient reports, attend problem-based learning tutorials, and particpate in other activities designed to solidify their knowledge before graduating and starting in private practice.
