BRIDGEPORT, WV – Julie Bernet, a medical assistant graduate who now works at Whitehall Medical, chose to attend West Virginia Junior College Bridgeport because she said she believed she could get good training in a reasonable amount of time.
“I heard good things about the MA program and always wanted to be in the medical field,” Julie said.
Her favorite part of the medical program was the hand-on training, which she said prepared her for her career.
The faculty’s willingness to always help and the supportive environment stood out during her time at WVJC Bridgeport. The program coordinator and lab instructors were always available when she needed them, she said.
Now working as medical assistant, Julie is able to help people, and loves the people she works with, as well as the environment.
“(It) has given me a great sense of pride in myself and my career, and knowing that I am making a difference in others lives as well,” Julie said.
After her experience, Julie would recommend the college and medical assisting program to anyone.
“Being a single parent was difficult and the support and encouragement from everyone helped me succeed,” Julie said.
