This online course is for working optometrists who wish to further their knowledge, skills and understanding to Masters level. The programme recognises and incorporates Professional Certificates from the College of Optometrists. Modules have been designed with contributions from guest experts from ophthalmology, clinicians from hospital settings and other specialists.
You will graduate equipped with skills to undertake extended clinical roles and promote the development of eye care within your region. You will develop critical thinking skills to evaluate and undertake research and may go on to further research endeavours including doctoral research training.
Self-motivation, independent learning, problem solving and developing and communicating scientific arguments are encouraged through a programme which emphasises critical thinking. You will undertake a research project in an area of your choosing with support from an academic supervisor.
