Neurosciences Center of Excellence Honored for Support of Career Education

The Charlottesville Campus recently honored the Neurosciences Center of Excellence of the University of Virginia Health System with the Distinguished Community Employer Award.


The campus and the clinic have forged a highly successful relationship over the last two years, as the Neurosciences Center of Excellence has hosted several externs from the medical assisting program and has recently hired two medical assisting graduates.


The University of Virginia Health System is comprised of a hospital and numerous outpatient clinics. Many of these clinics have hosted medical assisting students from the Charlottesville Campus in the externship phase of their degree programs. 


“We’re pleased to have established such a strong partnership with the UVA Neurosciences Center of Excellence,” said campus director John Donohue. “They have provided valuable learning opportunities for our student externs, and we have in turn been able to help them fill their employment needs by providing them with quality medical assistants.”
