Justin Miller

HCC's Medical Administrative Assistant program put Justin Miller on his career path toward becoming a nurse. An externship in the Cardiology department at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center led to a full-time position, and Justin now takes classes in hopes of being accepted into HCC’s nursing program. Sounds like a bright future ahead – way to go, Justin!

Justin Miller is pleased to be working as a medical administrative assistant in the Cardiology Department at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center. What got him there was the successful completion of the Medical Administrative Assistant program here at HCC. “The Medical Administrative Assistant program equipped me with the knowledge I needed to obtain the job I wanted. All my classes detailed what I was going to experience, and how to deal with it. Aside from the people skills needed in any administrative area, I was taught proper business grammar, medical software technology, and all Microsoft programs. Having never worked in the medical field, this program made the transition easy,” said Justin.

Instructor Sherry Massoni had only good things to say about Justin. “I have been teaching for HCC's Continuing Education division for over 13 years and have had the privilege of working with numerous students who often have varying reasons for pursuing an education. Although they all are memorable, Justin stands out. When you first meet him, you are greeted by an infectious smile and friendly persona. Albeit endearing qualities, they are limited descriptors considering Justin's overall character. Some words that come to mind to describe Justin are compassionate, motivated, persistent, bright, positive, self-assured, vigilant, open, supportive, etc. His passion and desire to give back is not only sincere, but also humbling. Justin Miller will do great things in anything that he pursues, but he will be a true gift within the medical environment.” Mike Marino, Medical Office Instructor, agrees. “Justin was an exceptional student in class; he was a high performer, always prepared and extremely professional. He has carried those traits over to his role in a busy cardiology practice with Upper Chesapeake.”

Likewise, Justin’s experience with the Medical Administrative Assistant program was nothing but positive. He felt all of his instructors and staff helped him tremendously, from day one when he submitted his application to the last day when he received his certificate. Best of all, his externship at a cardiology office at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center led to his current full-time position with benefits. Now that he has a steady job, he is able to take classes with the hope of getting accepted into the nursing program at HCC. This program was exactly what Justin needed to take the next step in the process of finding the right career for him: nursing.
