Employer Offers Employment Before Graduation
Dec 16, 2013
Justin Mills graduated with an Associate of Science in Medical Assisting from the Martinsville Campus in September. He had a very successful externship opportunity with Friedrichs Family Eye Center and was hired as an ophthalmic technician one month prior to his graduation date. Justin performs many tasks to help assist the optometrist which includes preparing the patient for vision examination, assisting in testing for near and far acuity, depth perception, color perception, and utilizing ocular testing apparatus.
Justin decided to enroll at American National University after serving our country for seven years in the U.S Air Force. “I wanted to continue my education and to learn something new that I had never done before,” said Justin about his decision to enroll. Justin added that the degree helped to “broaden [his] skill set.” He has high expectations for the next five to 10 years. He plans to continue his education by pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Health Care Management and wants to open his own medical practice someday. Justin recommends ANU to others because, “A person needs to take the time to better themselves, learn something new along with expanding [their] knowledge. You never know what doors may open,” he said.
