Google Search Lands Graduate in a New Career
Apr 07, 2015
Elizabeth Richmond was looking for career training that would allow her to get out into the workforce quickly, when a Google search led her to the medical office assistant program at the Florence Campus. “I saw the length of the program, and I thought that was ideal,” she recalled. “Then they told me it was a small college, and that works for me because I need more one-on-one attention.”
After completing the program in less than six months, Elizabeth’s goal of finding a good job to support her family was achieved when she was recently hired by University of Cincinnati Physicians group as a floating patient services representative, working in medical offices throughout the Tristate area.
“I like to tell people that I work for UC,” she said with a big smile. “I sit at the front desk when patients come in to be checked in, or make an appointment, [and I help with] anything that they need to check on or look up.”
Elizabeth feels that her transition from the classroom to the medical office has gone smoothly thanks to the relevant, hands-on training that she received at American National University, particularly in utilizing the electronic health records system in her office. “The e-Medsys program [that we received training on at National] is very similar to the real world EPIC program, so that really helped me out a lot, because I knew nothing prior,” she explained. In order to provide graduates with the most up-to-date essential knowledge and skills necessary, the medical office assistant program has recently been superseded by the new medical office professional program, which represents the culmination of months of research into this constantly growing career field.
Elizabeth feels that she will have many opportunities for career advancement and growth with UC, and she feels grateful that her Google search landed her at National, where she received all the tools that she needed to find her new career.
“Before National, I had tried college twice and failed, so when I started at National I told myself I wasn’t going to quit, and I finished,” she stated proudly. “Now, I’m making great money, and I have insurance for me and my daughter.”
