When not teaching the contact lens and business courses at ICO, Dr. Jurkus teaches nationally and internationally in many countries, including Poland, China, Australia, New Zealand and Scotland. Working with students in the Cornea Center for Excellence Clinic, she gets to make people with complex corneal conditions see through the application of specialty contact lenses. Administratively, she works to assure an excellent residency experience for both on- and off-campus residency positions. She also hosted a live television show for eight seasons.
ICO provides a great clinical experience. Students here see and treat people with eye conditions that many optometrists just read about. It is always great to meet graduates and learn that their experience at ICO prepared them for a successful career in optometry. The excellent didactic education at ICO is reflected in the high board scores achieved by our students.
