Physician Seeks National College Externs

Apr 08, 2013

On Wednesday, March 27, Christopher Weve, director of health care education for the Harrisonburg Campus, met with Dr. Maria Hernandez, a specialist in internal medicine, and her assistant Eileen Gilmore. Christopher had received a call earlier requesting information about the availability of extern students from National’s medical assisting program.

“We are always looking for sites in which our students will be able to practice and hone their skills in a real-world setting,” explains Christopher. Dr. Hernandez was pleased with the breadth of National’s medical assisting program, saying, “I am very impressed with the courses the externs will have taken by the time they begin their externship experience during their last term of study.”

Eileen, a 2002 graduate of National College’s medical billing and coding program, expressed a desire to return to the campus in a coming term to become more familiar with the upcoming conversion to the ICD-10 coding process. “I am very thankful that National offers no-cost refresher courses,” she adds. As a graduate, Eileen may take a refresher course at any National campus and pay only for the textbook – a plus for the employee as well as the employer.
