Les études d’orthoptie

L’Arrêté du 20 octobre 2014 relatif aux études en vue de la délivrance du Certificat de Capacité organise la licence de la formation des orthoptistes.

L’accès à la formation orthoptiste en France est limité par un numerus national et donc conditionné à la réussite au concours d’entrée organisé annuellement.

Le Certificat de Capacité d’Orthoptiste conférera le grade licence aux étudiants orthoptistes qui auront entrepris cette formation à la rentrée universitaire 2014-2015.

Les études d’orthoptie sont organisées en 6 semestres de formation validés par l’obtention de 180 crédits européens correspondant au niveau licence.

Three years, including:

In terms of the theory, see the teaching departments’ reference system: classes are compulsory and are prioritised over the placements but they do not excuse students from carrying out the total required time for placements every year.

  • A hospital placement in an ophthalmology department: students are on placement for an average of 5 to 6 half-days per week. They are assigned to hospitals in Paris or on the outskirts based on the preferences they chose at the beginning of each academic year.

Students’ preferences will be taken into account based on how they ranked academically:

  • for 1st year students: by the mark they obtained in the entrance exam
  • for 2nd and 3rd year students, by the mark they obtained in the previous year’s final exam.

The location of the placement must be different every year.

For university classes, there is an exam for each module at the end of each semester of study

1st Year:

  • 1st semester module accreditation: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-12-16
  • 2nd semester module accreditation: 6-10-11-13-14-15-17-18-19-20

2nd Year:

  • 1st semester module accreditation: 6-21-24-25-26-32
  • 2nd semester module accreditation: 6-22-23-27-28

3rd Year:

  • 1st semester module accreditation: 6-29-30-31-37-41
  • 2nd semester module accreditation: 6-33-34-35-36-38-39-40

The student can enrol in the next year if they are missing a maximum of 3 non-compulsory modules in their 1st year and are missing 2 modules in their 2nd year.

Holidays: unless arranged in exceptional circumstances by the placement supervisor for operational reasons, the holidays are as follows: 2 weeks at Christmas, 2 weeks at Easter and 2 months over summer. Depending on the year, there is either 1 week over Halloween or 1 week in February
