UNSW Grad Cert in Ocular Therapeutics

Practising optometrists considering therapeutic endorsement are now able to enrol to complete the Graduate Certificate in Ocular Therapeutics at University of New South Wales.

Accredited by OCANZ, students will complete three part-time courses that cover the didactic and clinical components of ocular therapy. On completion of this specialised program, they will be able to prescribe topical therapeutic agents effectively, safely, and in line with relevant legislation to manage ocular disease in optometry patients.

This program will be delivered by an award-winning team of instructors from the School of Optometry and Vision Science at UNSW Sydney. It will be facilitated by regular live webinars and online lectures over the course of one year.

Applications are now open for the program which will commence in mid-January 2024.

Commonwealth supported places (CSPs) are currently available for this program, allowing optometrists to become therapeutically endorsed. The indicative cost of this program is AU$4,472, equating to a potential saving of more than 75% off the regular domestic fee.

Indicative continuing professional development (CPD) hours for this program are 170 hours, including 50 interactive hours (based on program data from 2022).
