Kathreen Buckner, director of healthcare education, and career center director Karen Sheldon accompanied medical assisting students Ashley Rehg, Kristen Robertson, Anisa Hersi, and Bobbie Bitter at the Florence Campus to tour St. Elizabeth Physicians practice in Dry Ridge, Kentucky. This was an opportunity to combine a field trip to a medical facility and the presentation of the Distinguished Community Employer Award. “Our facility has grown exponentially since opening over 20 years ago”, said office manager LeAnn Brown. Ms. Brown would know, because she has been with the practice since the beginning. “American National University has sent us wonderful externs that we’ve hired,” said Ms. Brown. “They are courteous, knowledgeable, compassionate, and are eager to learn even after completing their externships. Those qualities are not necessarily innate in medical assisting candidates.” Ms. Brown said that she is “always open to hosting American National University’s medical assisting externs.”
