Student Shadowing

students participating in shadowing programMedical Office Procedures students Nirali Patel and Kelsey Clary recently completed sixteen hours of job shadowing in the Rehab and Exercise Therapy and the Cancer and Specialty Care Departments at VCU Community Memorial Hospital.

The shadowing provided the students with an opportunity to observe the actual workflow in the medical office and to relate what they are learning in class to what actually occurs in the workplace. Students in the AST 271 class will take the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant exam offered by NationalHealth Career Associates at the end of the semester.

Thanks to VCU Community Memorial Hospital for affording the students this opportunity.
