Outstanding final year students recognised
Optometry Victoria's academic award is for final year students who epitomise the highest commitment to patient care.
The prize is awarded each year to a final year student from Deakin University and from the University of Melbourne, who demonstrate outstanding clinical aptitude, commitment to evidence-based practice and professonalism.
The successful students receive a cash prize of $1,500 each, to spend as they see fit.
To be eligible students must:
- be a current student member of Optometry Victoria;
- renew as an Immediate Graduate member of Optometry Victoria
- have completed all the academic requirements to be eligible to graduate, and
- be eligible to register with AHPRA on graduation, to practice optometry in Victoria.
