Student Doctor VT 101 Course
Doctor VT 101 Course discounted for optometry students and residents
Our online Student Doctor VT 101 course is the same course as the Doctor 101 course just discounted for students and residents. It is designed to provide foundational concepts and a basic knowledge of vision therapy. Many students do not feel prepared to start practicing vision therapy after school. This curriculum will help fill in the gaps and help solidify some of the concepts you've learned in class.The course has over 50 videos, 5 hours of total curriculum. Additionally over 20 different vision therapy activities are taught for you to use with patients.
Some concepts may feel very basic, as this course was originally designed for newly hired vision therapists. However, many doctors have remarked on how helpful these courses have been to them.
Unlike the therapist course, there is not a COVT mentor, oral or written exam. It also does not come with a certificate.
This course is only intended for students currently enrolled in a college of optometry. Licensed Doctors of Optometry have different pricing. This course is also not intended for vision therapists. We require greater guidance for vision therapists to use our curriculum. For more information about our online vision therapist training program, please go here.
