CAOS is pleased to present the Mentorship Program which operates year-round, in optometry clinics across Canada!

Mentorship sites are listed below, organized alphabetically by the lead optometrist beginning from Western Canada. If you are interested in participating in a visit, please e-mail, with your name, your year and your interested clinic(s) to visit.  Please quote ‘CAOS Mentorship‘ in the subject heading. Stay tuned for updates, as we add more sites to both lists!


What is the Mentorship Program?

The Mentorship Program consists of a day visit to an OD’s office, where a group of optometry students are matched with an optometrist in their area. This opportunity allows the OD to share their experiences on various issues such as practice management to emerging issues in optometry to clinical care, as well as host a clinic tour. The visit also includes an informal question and answer period and enables professional networking.
