VOSH is on the MOVE: Motivating Others To VOSH Excellence: Three Programs to Explore:
Growing a New Generation of Optometrists in Developing Nations: VOSH/International, in collaboration with other eye health care leaders, has developed three initiatives to build optometric education worldwide: The VOSH Corps Program and the Ambassador Program and the Mentorship Program. We invite North American ODs to serve in emerging optometric institutions as faculty and program development assistants, on either a long term (1-2 years) or a short term (minimum of 1 week) basis or to partner with international SVOSH chapters. These are fantastic opportunities for those just entering the profession; those who are transitioning to retirement; or those looking for a new adventure.
VOSH Corps is a one-year minimum commitment to teaching abroad. Apply here for the VOSH Corps Program
The Ambassador Program is a short term teaching visit to an optometry program and includes $1000 for international travel and up to $1500 to bring ophthalmic instruments. Apply here for the Ambassador Program
SVOSH/VOSH Mentorship Program is designed to mentor a SVOSH/VOSH group abroad and includes $1500 for ophthalmic equipment. Apply here for the Mentorship Program
