Advancement Prospects

Orthoptists who work in hospitals or large medical facilities and clinics may advance to become senior orthoptist after five or more years of experience. After many years on the job, they may become department heads, responsible for overseeing a team of medical professionals and related staff members. They may get certification and go back to school for an advanced degree. They may start their own private practice. Orthoptists also advance in their careers by teaching and writing about orthoptics.
