National College recognizes organizations who support employment in their community by hiring highly-qualified National College graduates, and by providing tuition assistance for their employees to attend National College, or by providing the opportunity to receive hands-on training in a work environment through our externship program.



Jan 27, 2016

The American National University Columbus Campus recently recognized Dr. Donald Woodard’s Family and Addiction Practice as a Distinguished Community Employer.

The practice recently accepted medical assisting student Hurl-Lu Waugh as an extern.  Externships are an important component of the medical assisting program at ANU, giving students an opportunity to gain experience in a medical office, while giving the medical practice an opportunity to evaluate a student as a potential employee.

Hurl-Lu worked hard and proved himself to Dr. Woodard and his staff, and he was hired based on the quality of his work during his externship. “Hurl-Lu was very prepared as an extern which led to my hiring decision,” stated Dr. Woodard.

 

Hurl-Lu loves working with his patients in Dr. Woodard’s practice, and he feels that his training at ANU allowed him to master the skills that he needed to be successful in his medical assisting career. “The instructors and staff [at ANU] were always helpful,” he said. “[I was] very pleased with my education and training at ANU.”
