Central Virginia Family Physicians (CVFP), does so much for the Lynchburg Campus and the medical students that they received the Distinguished Community Employer award on Tuesday, March 11th. They are one of the largest employers for registered medical assistants of the university and also provide externships for upcoming graduates. CVFP is in the process of adding additional services so that will lead to even more job opportunities for our students as well as will enable them to better serve the communities. CVFP has multiple locations in different localities and because of their various locations, they are able to help the campus provide learning opportunities for students in the communities in which they live. Students get hands-on clinical experience, administrative skills, patient care skills, customer service, and team environment interaction within CVFP. Students always feel welcomed by the staff at every location and they feel they learn a tremendous amount during this vital time in their studies.
Many of the students want to continue to work for CVFP after their externship is complete. Student Jessica Hilbish-Winston said, “I love working there as an extern and I hope I get hired full-time. I have learned so much in my career field while there. “
