This part-time OR full-time opportunity for a Doctor of Optometry Associate is available at Three Rivers Optometric Group, Inc. located in Yuba City, California.
Why you should apply
This well-established, successful Optometry practice is growing, and long-term opportunity is on the horizon for the right Doctor of Optometry. If you’re looking to grow into the eyecare practitioner you want to be by learning from other talented Optometrists in private practice, this is your chance!
Centrally located just 40 miles north of Sacramento, Yuba City offers the classic American small-town experience, with the added convenience of nearby city life. Situated at the base of the Sutter Buttes—the smallest mountain range in the world—Yuba City has cultural, religious, and architectural roots stemming from Native American, Spanish, Mexican, and Chinese settlers who immigrated to California during the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, visitors and residents alike enjoy the eclectic heritage woven into the city’s landscape, buildings, businesses, and neighborhoods. There’s a little something for everyone in Yuba City, including the Sutter County memorial museum, historical quarter on 2nd Street, Feather River Levee Bike Trail, Gauche Aquatic Park, and Bok Kai Taoist Temple, to name a few. Plentiful hunting and fishing opportunities exist with the Feather, Sacramento and Yuba Rivers nearby. Its proximity to some of California's most visited destinations—Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Napa, Monterey, Santa Cruz and Yosemite—make it an ideal location to practice.
