Medical Students Tour Cardiology Practice

Apr 14, 2014

Students from instructor Jennifer Lyon’s Medical Office Procedures class at the Danville, Kentucky Campus recently got to see first-hand how a cardiology office works when they toured Ephraim McDowell Cardiology.

During the tour, the students watched the front window and check-out procedures. The staff demonstrated the use of Electronic Medical Records (EMR), and also showed the students how hard copies are used in the office.  They were also given a brief lesson on pacemaker insertion in which they learned that the documentation of brands is very important.  Dr. Sharat Kohl spoke to the students and told them that a good office staff is vital to a successful office.

Medical assisting student Connie Gonzalez said that the tour was very educational.  “It was a very nice tour of their office.  The staff was very informative,” she said. “They gave us a lot of interesting information about the office procedures and billing and scheduling systems of the office.”

“I really enjoyed going to Danville Cardiology,” added fellow medical assisting student Megan Locker.  “The office was very organized and professional.  I would definitely like to go back!”
