Transition from International Optometric Bridging Program (IOBP) to Waterloo School of Optometry & Vision Science (WOVS) Advanced Standing Program

The International Optometric Bridging Program (IOBP) project at the University of Waterloo, School of Optometry and Vision (WOVS) funded by the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities has provided a pathway for internationally-trained optometric graduates (IOGs) to practice optometry in Canada for the past 14 years. Based on the success of this program we will be transitioning this program to a self-sustaining model.
