Number of MCO Students per Rotation:
Since 1940, Michigan Eye Institute has been one of the top eye care practices in the country. To help increase the level of ophthalmology services, we redefined the availability of eye care resources in our region by working with hospitals, teaching institutions, and primary care physicians. By fully integrating our practice, we have been able to provide our patients with examination, treatment, and optical services under one roof.
Our mission is to provide care to our patients in a warm, caring, personal and professional manner by the doctors and staff. The Michigan Eye Institute lives by its core values; compassionate, attention to detail, servant's heart, integrity, team player, knowledgeable and technologically driven.
Michigan Eye Institute does not require the COVID-19 vaccination in the clinic. However, if students are interested in shadowing surgey they must be fully vacinated against COVID-19 and no exemptions will be accepted.
Please contact Dr. Tekiele, OD 6 weeks prior to the beginning of your rotation to verify dates, times, directions, parking, and any other information. Please check with the site for specific health testing requirements.
