Western Medicine has been very supportive of students at the Dayton Area Campus by hosting medical assisting externs as much as possible and by offering employment to them after completing 160 hours of work. Kristi Slygh, office manager, has been completely satisfied with the externs’ clinical and administrative skills. She notices that the graduates stand out from the average entry-level candidates by their great attitude and willingness to accept responsibilities which are excellent soft skills required for success. Ms. Slygh said, “I would definitely contact American National University first whenever there is an opening for a medical assistant.” Because of this relationship, Western Medicine recently received a plaque from the campus recognizing them as a Distinguished Community Employer. The award is reserved for those employers who show exceptional support of career education.
Western Medicine has been in the Fairborn area for more than 10 years and has a staff of physicians, physician extenders, and medical assistants. They serve thousands of patients a year and enjoy making contributions within their community. Their practice emphasizes patient centered, holistic preventative medicine and the management of chronic illnesses to maintain optimal health longer.
Graduate Shauna Hernandez (l), who was recently hired by Western Medicine, accepts the Distinguished Community Employer award from Derrick Parks, (r) director of health care education at the Dayton Area Campus.
