Professional Teaching Fellow - Mobile Clinic

  • Auckland, New Zealand
  • Full-time
  • UoA Department Name: Optometry and Vision Science
  • Campus: Grafton Campus
  • Contract Type: Fixed-Term
  • Position Number: 55566404

 

Company Description

The School of Optometry and Vision Science (SOVS) is part of the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences within the University of Auckland. We are the only Optometry school in Aotearoa and offer a Bachelor of Optometry qualification (accredited by the Optometry Council of Australia and New Zealand) that enables graduates to practice optometry in Aotearoa and Australia. SOVS operates a full scope optometry clinic, with a large and diverse patient base, on the UoA Grafton campus. SOVS staff and students also participate in clinics at other sites throughout Auckland.

 

Job Description

In 2021 SOVS will commence delivery of a mobile optometry service out of the Aotearoa Vision Bus. This is a custom manufactured mobile optometry clinic, which will be equipped to provide a full service from standard comprehensive eye examination to dispensing of glasses and contact lenses to provision of specialised examinations.

The mobile optometry service will operate in partnership with various community-based organisations, from schools within the Greater Auckland region (to augment our existing school screening service), marae, care homes and various primary health organisations.

 

The goals of the scheme are to:

  • Diversify and improve optometry training
  • Deliver community-based optometric service to people who may otherwise struggle to access such services
  • Support research eg into inequities in eye health outcomes and service-delivery across Aotearoa
  • Promote optometry as a profession to students from diverse backgrounds

 

We have an opening available for an experienced and highly motivated Professional Teaching Fellow to develop and run this initiative. The role incorporates duties associated with a standard professional role (predominantly supervision/training of Part IV and V BOptom students, and delivery of high-quality optometric services to patients) but the successful candidate would also be expected to help develop the mobile clinic initiative itself (eg through building of relationships with partner organisations etc).

 

This is a full-time position initially available for five years, and the level of appointment and salary will be on the Professional Teaching Fellow scale in accordance with qualifications and experience.  Support will be provided for the development of areas of clinical subspecialty and excellence, including financial support for continuing professional development. The annual fees for NZAO membership, PI insurance and the Annual Practising Certificate will also be paid.

Inquiries should be addressed to Clinical Director, Dr Geraint Phillips, and telephone 64 (0)9 923 6503 or email: g.phillips@auckland.ac.nz.

 

Qualifications

Applicants should hold an optometry qualification that is recognised for registration as an Optometrist (TPA endorsement) or Educator Optometrist (TPA endorsement) in New Zealand.  Visit http://odob.health.nz for more information.

Applicants should also hold a full clean NZ drivers’ license and be a confident driver, as the role will involve regularly driving the Aotearoa Vision Bus to a variety of sites to offer services.
