Optometric workforce oversupply from 2016

Optometry

Optometry Australia (formerly known as the Optometrists Association Australia) has commissioned a report “Optometric supply and demand in Australia: 2011-2036”, which is forecasting a significant oversupply of optometrists by the year 2036, but starting from 2016.

The report takes into account demand for services as well as graduate numbers. It is expected that the optometric workforce will more than double over the next 20 years.

The take-home message? If you are considering becoming an optometrist, be prepared for a competitive jobs market!

Update: In December 2014, Optometry Australia reported that all the graduates from the University of Melbourne’s Doctor of Optometry course had secured jobs, and that all the Flinders University optometry graduates would also be starting work in 2015.
