Kettering Family Practice Helps Medical Assisting Students Prepare for Their New Careers

The Dayton Area Campus recently recognized Kettering Family Practice as a Distinguished Community Employer for their continued support of American National University’s medical assisting degree program.

Kettering Family Practice has partnered with the campus as an externship site for the medical assisting degree program. They have helped train many American National University students offering them a hands-on learning experience in a real medical office. As a result of these successful externships, Kettering Family Practice has hired several National graduates.

Campus Director Rob Gast said that students who have done an externship rotation at Kettering Family Practice frequently comment about their positive externship experience. “Students appreciate how the staff lets them apply what they have learned in classes on actual patients instead of just observing,” explained Rob.

Kettering Family Practice also participates in the campus’s Medical Assisting Advisory Board and contributes valuable information on what students need to learn to be successful in the medical assisting field.
