University of Manchester undergraduate Optometry students

Two weekend training events for 54 final year undergraduate optometrists were held recently at Optegra Eye Hospital Manchester. The events were facilitated by Optegra’s Andreas Hartwig, Jay Dermott, Clare O’Donnell and optometrist Christa Gore. The feedback questionnaires demonstrated that our referral partners of the future found the events hugely enjoyable and informative. Student placements are also currently offered at Optegra Yorkshire and Optegra Birmingham and plans are underway to extend these invaluable training opportunities to our other Optegra hospitals.
