Graduate Begins Triaging Patients on Her First Day of Work

Jan 20, 2014

Tera Smith, a graduate of the medical assisting program at the Pikeville Campus, came to American National University after being encouraged by her mother-in-law, Donna Smith, who is a graduate of National.  Tera said that she had always wanted to enter the medical field but with a growing family felt she would not be able to attend the classes.   When she heard that the college offered both day and evening classes, she felt she could not pass up the opportunity to attend.  

In November, Tera completed the medical assisting program.  She received a phone call for an interview the day after she sat for the medical assisting certification.  Tera recently started working at Dr. Charles Lowe’s office as a medical assistant.  “National has provided me with the skills and knowledge to be able to start triaging patients on the first day of work,” said Tera.  “I am confident of my abilities and education that I have obtained.” She admits, while being a bit nervous, she couldn’t be more excited about her new career.
