MedOne is Valuable Partner for Medical Assisting Program
Feb 12, 2013
The Bristol Campus recently recognized Med-One of Tennessee as a Distinguished Community Employer. In the last seven years, the urgent care provider has hosted many students in the National College medical assisting program as externs, providing them an opportunity to get hands-on experience in a real medical office. Terry Gross, one of two externs currently working there, is grateful for the opportunity to get practical experience. “I love the fact that I really get to use all of the skills I have gained in class, like phlebotomy and [giving] injections,” he said.
“The National College medical assisting students are really great and even the physicians comment on their skills and work ethic,” said Joyce St. John, Med-One office manager and National graduate.
Med-One has also offered employment to several National graduates over the years. In fact, more than 75% of the current staff are graduates of National College. Graduate Ruth Ann Vandyke works at the front desk and loves her job: “I love working here!”
