Bullitt County Family Practitioners Honored as a Distinguished Community Employer
Jul 16, 2013
The Louisville Campus has named Bullitt County Family Practitioners as a Distinguished Community Employer due to the practice’s ongoing support of American National University graduates and career college education. Dr. Mohana Arla of Bullitt County Family Practitioners who has partnered with the Louisville Campus since 2006, said, “You can be proud [because] your graduates come to my office and they are well trained for everything.”
Louisville Campus director of health care education Bonnie Kiefer was one of the first American National University students to extern in his office and she was hired by the practice during her externship. Since that time, Dr. Arla has worked closely with more than 20 American National University medical assisting students and several medical billing and coding students have also completed externships in his office.
Dr. Arla has a passion for teaching and he feels that he has a responsibility to give students as much hands-on experience as possible while they are working in his office. Regarding the externs’ experience working in his office, Dr. Arla said, “One thing is for sure [they] will work hard, but [they] will learn a lot.” I always tell them [that] my name is on the line because [they are] going to put my name on [their] resume. That means I want to make sure [they] do the right things,” he explained.
