Kudos also goes out to Ms. Laura Luberski who graduated recently from the Medical Assistant Program. Laura was a consistent high achiever in the classroom. She passed her National Certification Exam with one of the highest scores in recent years. Laura was able to extern at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists & Austin Hand Group.
Her externship supervisor was so impressed with her willingness to work, and professional skills, that they offered Ms. Laura Luberski a position as a Medical Assistant!
Laura is now continuing on with her Healthcare training, pursuing a Nursing degree. We know Laura is going to go far with whatever she puts her mind to.
We wish her all the best!
The Learning Pad wants to recognize Amanda Wright who has worked so hard and done so well in her studies in our Medical Assistant Program.
Amanda was sponsored by DARS (Dept. of Assisted and Rehabilitative Services) and came to class with a background of working in a Veterinarians office.
Her instructors said she was a constant pleasure to have in class, with her winning attitude and pleasant personality. The administration team enjoyed her time here as well.
Amanda received an externship rather quickly with Specially For Children, a regional medical group of pediatric physicians dedicated to treating children and adolescents with severe, unusual and complex illnesses.
Amanda excelled so well, that Specially For Children offered her a permanent position as a medical assistant!
We know Amanda will go far with her training and winning attitude!
It looked like these students had FUN learning!
What a GREAT group of people who studied hard and did so well in class.
Special KUDOS goes out to Bryan Wise who not only scored high scores on all his exams, but the month before he took the EKG Technician class, and just last Friday passed his National Certification Examination! We know he will pass his Phlebotomy Certification Exam as well. GOOD JOB! You can see and hear Bryan tell about his experience HERE. You can also hear about Michelle Lugo’s experience in class.
