Virginia College Students & Graduates could benefit HFNI Physician offices

March 20, 2009

Health First Network staff recently met with Virginia College representatives to learn more about their healthcare-related programs and to determine if the training, education and skills of Virginia College students and graduates could benefit Health First Network Physicians Offices.

Programs offered at the Pensacola campus include:
• Healthcare Reimbursement (associate)
• Health Sciences (associate)
• Medical Assistant (diploma and associate)
• Medical Billing and Coding (diploma)
• Medical Office Management (associate)
• Pharmacy Technician (diploma)
• Pharmacy Technology (associate)
• Practical Nursing (diploma)
• Surgical Technology (associate)

Students must complete at least 180 hours of unpaid "hands-on" externship in physician offices, hospitals and/or skilled nursing facilities as part of their training. Several Health First Network Physician Offices have provided these students with in-office training opportunities, and have successfully hired exceptional students as regular employees.

If you are interested in providing a training opportunity in your office for a Virginia College Student, contact Danny Foust, Allied Health Extern Site Coordinator at 850-436-8444, ext. 2325.
