Excellence of UTS Orthoptists Acknowledged
Graduates from the Masters of Orthoptics program, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Graduate School of Health (GSH), were recognised at the School’s annual Orthoptics Prize and Scholarship evening back in May this year.
The 2017 Orthoptics Australia (OA) Prize was presented to our very own Genevieve Mooney. The award was presented by Marion Rivers, president of Orthoptics Australia, who represents 500 orthoptists across Australia. This award recognised the achievement of the highest marks in Professional Practice subjects.
We are very fortunate to have Genevieve as part of our Orthoptic team at SOS. Her kind and happy disposition has been a winner with both patients and staff.
Professor Frank Martin was also at the event to present the Frank Martin Orthoptics Scholarship. Dr Martin is Chair of the UTS orthoptists’ advisory group and while presenting the award, acknowledged the UTS Master of Orthoptics course and orthoptists valuable role in eye health.
