Currently Seeking: Placement Hosts for 2018

Wednesday, 3 January, 2018 - 15:10


Would you be interested in hosting a final year UNSW optometry student for a clinical placement during 2018?

We are seeking practices to host a student for a 6-week clinical placement in the greater Sydney area. This is a new placement program for 2018 where the primary aim is for students to examine (under supervision) at least 50 patients during the 6-week period. 

Students would attend: 

  • your practice from Monday to Thursday
  • the UNSW School of Optometry on Fridays to participate in a feedback session.


  • Monday 19 February to Thursday 29 March 2018 – most needed


  • Monday 9 April to Thursday 17 May 2018

In recognition of your contribution hosts will receive a Certificate of Appreciation, access to online training resources and invitations to free UNSW Alumni events which attract continuing professional development points.

If you are interested in hosting a final year student please fill in the Reply Form and return it to Michelle Bonanno, Clinical Placement Coordinator (email:
