About Us

Dr. Jeffrey Kegarise
President

The Tiger Institute for Cooperative Learning began in 2010 in Franklin, Tennessee, as a way for Dr. Jeffrey Kegarise to provide education and professional development opportunities to the optometric technicians and staff members of his busy and growing practice.  Realizing that he and his trainers had much to offer, and true to his passion for bettering the landscape of patient care, The Tiger Institute began offering courses after office hours and allowing staff members from other practices to attend.  As the years have passed, so has the scope of the Tiger Institute grown, offering training and education to doctors and staff from any branch or specialty of medicine.

Why Tiger?

With other practice-building companies available, you might be asking yourself what sets The Tiger Institute apart from their services.  The difference is fundamental.  We are dedicated to the continual growth and development of practices achieved through consistent, high quality education and training.

We hope you will join in our efforts to achieve our vision of improving medical practices, and in turn, the quality of care that we are able to provide to our patients.
