Number of Hours Shadowing Optometrist?


Recommended Posts


I know that Waterloo outlines a minimum of 8 hours required shadowing an optometrist but I was wondering how many hours is considered ideal? They do point out on the admissions website that most applicants have many more hours than the minimum but I was hoping someone could quantify exactly how many hours candidates normally have when applying. The optometrist I'm shadowing this summer asked me how many hours I would want to spend in the practice so I was hoping someone could help me out, especially if you've already applied or have been accepted to Waterloo!

Thanks :)
