The aim of the course is to benefit both ophthalmic practices and students.
The course will increase available staff to help in the clinic.
What does this potentially mean for the practice?
1. Increased productivity by increasing the number of patients seen
2. Improved practice efficiency by employing staff with increased ophthalmic knowledge
3. Improved staff retention and reduced staff turnover, as staff may feel more engaged and can contribute in the clinic. And thus;
4. Increasing practice revenue
We aim to improve student’s understanding and ophthalmic knowledge.
Some of the benefits students have expressed to us include:
1. Improved confidence when answering phone calls and queries
2. An increased understanding of why certain tests are performed and how to provide assistance in the clinic
3. Personal growth by increasing skill sets and job opportunities
4. Improved engagement by contributing to the clinic and therefore improving job satisfaction
