On the MOVE: Motivating Others To VOSH Excellence: Three Programs to Explore:
VOSH Corps is a one-year minimum commitment to teaching abroad. https://voshinternational.wufoo.com/forms/application-for-vosh-corps-ambassador-programs/
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. https://voshinternational.wufoo.com/forms/application-for-vosh-corps-ambassador-programs/
SVOSH/VOSH Mentorship Program is designed to mentor a SVOSH/VOSH group abroad and only includes $1500 for ophthalmic equipment. https://voshinternational.wufoo.com/forms/vosh-mentorship-program-application-move/
Grow a New Generation of Optometrists in Developing Nations: VOSH/International, in collaboration with the Brien Holden Vision Institute Public Health Division and supported by Optometry Giving Sight, 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/International will review applications with final selection and placement by the Brien Holden Vision Institute.
