Our fabulous guest today is Paula Johns Doctor of Optometry. She studied at University of Alabama at Birmingham and is currently finishing her masters of Public Health in Epidemiology at Harvard. Yes, that Harvard. The program is 3 weeks on campus in the summer with the rest being online learning. She has a passion for research especially in diseases that could be prevented, like diabetes. Long term Dr. Paula may go into hospital administration, Chief Optometrist or applied research. Currently she enjoys being a practicing optometrist as well as the Residency Director.
Before graduating, students need to learn time management with patients as well as knowing which tests to order for different conditions. You can’t order everything. Doctors, make sure you schedule down time otherwise time will get away from you and the burnout happens.
