Graduate Shares with Medical Assisting Students What to Expect on the Job
Jul 10, 2012
Hollie Canipe, registered medical assistant and graduate of the Charlottesville Campus, recently shared with a class of Clinical Medical Assisting students the real world experience of her job at the University of Virginia Health Systems (UVAHS). The students heard how the instruction and knowledge that they receive in the classroom is transferred into reality at a medical office setting. She shared the value of having a high level of competency as a student and how it impacts one’s ability to function at a proficient level once employed.
Hollie shared that she really enjoys her role as a medical assistant in an extremely high-paced clinic at UVAHS and feels that her education at National College prepared her well to be an integral part of the health care team. The participating students appreciated hearing from her first-hand experience and gained valuable insight into the work world they will soon be entering into. We are proud of our graduates like Hollie who have gone on to be successful and come back to share what they have learned with students who are following in their steps.
