Exciting employment opportunity - Low Vision Clinic Director in Atlanta,
The Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI) has an immediate opening for a
Director of its Low Vision Clinic. Established more than 30 years ago
within a rehabilitation and social service model, the clinic is now
positioned to adopt a medical model more fully, which will enable us to
expand and access additional medical reimbursement options.
We seek an Occupational Therapist who possesses certification in Low Vision
or is committed to attain such certification within the first year of
employment. The ideal candidate will have strong experience in staff
supervision and program management. In addition to managing the day-to-day
operations of the Clinic, the successful candidate will also be expected to
carry a small caseload of Medicare-eligible patients.
Currently, CVI's Low Vision Clinic operates an average of three clinic days
per week, utilizing four contract Optometrists and two full-time Certified
Low Vision Therapists, resulting in over 700 low vision exams per year.
CVI's onsite VisAbility store provides a mechanism for seamless dispensing
of devices, so patients can often leave the facility with their prescribed
optical and non-optical devices.
CVI offers competitive salaries and excellent fringe benefits, including
vacation and sick leave, a 403-B plan and medical coverage. In addition,
CVI closes during the week between Christmas and New Year, which averages
an additional week of time off.
CVI is a fully accredited organization which provides services to persons
of all ages experiencing vision loss. The majority of patients served
through our low vision clinic are older adults, experiencing vision loss as
a result of age-related conditions.
CVI is located in Midtown Atlanta, close to public transportation, fine
dining, arts and many educational venues.
