Women in Optometry - June 2017

Part Time by Design

In some ways, this issue of Women In Optometry (WO) reflects the varied interests of summertime. Our cover story, for example, focuses on ODs who have determined that a 40+-hour workweek isn’t conducive to the kind of personal and professional lives that they want. Learn what factors went into their decisions to start out and remain at a part-time pace. Indeed, the results of a recent WO Pop-up Poll show that about 80 percent of the respondents said that they feel that a three- or four-day workweek (in the office for patient care or on-site administrative duties) would be ideal.
