Course Description:
The Postgraduate Diploma of Advanced Clinical Optometry allows optometrists to re-examine the basic sciences of optometry with the benefit of the latest information and an emphasis on understanding and dealing with clinical problems. Courses are in depth, challenging and are designed to significantly advance clinical skills in selected fields. The Diploma is only offered by distance education mode. It may be completed in one year of full time study or over two years of part time study.
Structure

The course may commence in either Semester 1 or Semester 2. In some years, depending on subject offerings, it may not be possible to commence studies in Semester 2.

The Diploma requires the completion of 4 of the following subjects. Please note each subject is 25 points.

655-802 Advanced Anterior Eye Disease Management
655-803 Clinical Management of Low Vision
655-805 Advanced Contact Lens Management
655-806 Paediatric Optometry
655-807 Advanced Posterior Eye Disease Management
655-808 Management of Neural Disorders of Vision

A study guide, which includes notes and reading material is provided to the student and/or is made available on-line via the internet. The study notes are designed to guide reading, ask questions and suggest exercises designed to promote understanding. It is expected that students will spend 6-10 hours per week study time on each subject. Most subjects offer students the opportunity to attend a half/full day seminar, once or twice during the semester, allowing students to interact and engage in discussion with the lecturer and other students. Attendance at these seminars is optional.

ASSESSMENT

Assessment normally comprises a combination of assignments and/or case studies and a three-hour written exam. Arrangements can be made for written examinations to be taken in the student's city of residence or in a nearby city. However, students must arrange their own proctor at an independent educational institution (i.e. University, TAFE, School), which must be approved by the Department. Any expenses associated with remote proctoring are the responsibility of the student (a proctor may supervise more than one student being examined at any time).
