Medical Assistant Gains Confidence During Externship

Mar 24, 2014

Brittney Wainscott, a medical assisting student from the Danville, Kentucky Campus, is working as an extern at the Sleep Disorders Center where she stays busy each day triaging and rooming patients, as well as assisting with the administrative side of the practice.

Brittney had worked in a daycare for many years when she decided to return to school to train for a career in the medical field.  A friend recommended American National University to her, and she decided to enroll because of the small campus and class size that the school offered.

She feels that her externship, where she’s putting her skills from the classroom to use on the job in a medical office, will help her feel more confident as she prepares to enter her new career.  “My very first day, I was nervous, but now I’m comfortable,” she said of her work in the practice. 

At the end of her program, Brittney will sit for the registered medical assisting certification exam and work with the school career center to help her find employment in the medical field.  “In the future, I’d really like to work in a pediatric office,” she said.

Medical assisting student Brittney Wainscott is getting hands-on experience in a medical office during her externship at the Sleep Disorders Center.
