NECO graduates compassionate and skilled optometrists prepared to practice in diverse settings. Located in the heart of Boston's Back Bay, the College is a small, independent graduate institution that currently enrolls students from 34 states and 8 countries. The College has its primary didactic teaching location at 424 Beacon Street, Boston and an additional Clinical Training Center located within the largest of its three owned and operated eye clinics (Boston-Commonwealth).
The NECO Clinical Network is the patient care and clinical education subsidiary of the New England College of Optometry and encompasses a wide network of local, national and international sites throughout which our students do their clinical training. As one of the largest providers of optometric services in Massachusetts, our faculty and students provide optometric services to nearly 90,000 patients annually in more than 43 locations, including many of Greater Boston's community health centers.

We are seeking a doctor who has a keen interest in providing clinical care in a primary care setting at NECO Center for Eye Care Roslindale. The position will also include academic responsibilities including laboratory instruction. This person should have a desire to teach tomorrow's optometrists the principles of optometric and interdisciplinary care.
Our mission is to improve the vision and eye health of populations through excellence in collaborative and community-oriented patient care, service, education, and research. A NECO health center optometrist is an exceptionally qualified doctor of optometry and clinician-educator who works in a dynamic team-oriented, multidisciplinary non-profit eye care network serving the vision and eye health needs of populations in greater Boston.
