Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) January 20, 2012
Dr. Michael Keil of Keil Lasik Vision Center has achieved a long, successful career in ophthalmology and laser eye surgery. He has performed more than 5,000 Lasik surgeries; this qualifies him as one of the most experienced Lasik surgeons in Michigan. Dr. Keil is interested in not only the welfare of his patients, but also the training and instruction of the next generation of ophthalmologists and Lasik surgeons.
Because of his training and interest in education, Dr. Keil has a long standing association with Metro Health Hospital. Not only did Keil complete his residency in ophthalmology at this Grand Rapids hospital in 2005, but Dr. Keil also achieved the status of Chief Ophthalmology Resident at Metro Health Hospital. After leaving to pursue his career with Keil Lasik Vision Center, Dr. Keil continued to contribute to Metro Health Hospital; he is still a part of Metro Health Village Ophthalmology, a teaching and research group that provides full vision care services. Dr. Keil explains, "After I graduated from my residency at Metro Health Hospital I continued to teach because I feel that it is important to continue the fine tradition of education at Metro." After this long affiliation, Dr. Keil is proud to be the new Program Director of the Ophthalmology Residency Program. This residency is affiliated with Michigan State University, where Dr. Keil is a Clinical Assistant Professor.
The Ophthalmology Residency Program at Metro Health Hospital is the only ophthalmology training program in West Michigan. During this four year program, students participate in lectures, conferences, research and training to further their medical careers. Dr. Keil enjoys working with medical students, interns, and residents. His appointment as Program Director of the Ophthalmology Residency comes as little surprise to his colleagues. Dr. Keil is excited to work with Metro Health Hospital in a new capacity, and looks forward to encouraging future medical professionals: "I am very honored to be involved in the training of future ophthalmologists. I trained at Metro under the esteemed Jeffery Holtzman, D.O. and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to a field that has been very good to me."
