National College recognizes organizations who support employment in their community by hiring highly-qualified National College graduates, and by providing tuition assistance for their employees to attend National College, or by providing the opportunity to receive hands-on training in a work environment through our externship program.



Jan 26, 2015

Recently, East Tennessee Medical Group, located in Alcoa, Tennessee, was presented with National College’s Distinguished Community Employer Award. ETMG is one of the area’s largest health care groups, with over 40 physicians across ten specialties, and growing.  

It is the belief of ETMG that by bringing together multiple specialties, as well as x-ray and laboratory services, patients can be offered faster and better service. It is through this vision that National College’s Knoxville Campus medical assisting students completing their externships at ETMG have gained a vast array of experience. “I have worked in endocrinology for 18 years, and working with diabetics is my heart’s passion, but the six weeks that I worked at ETMG clinic brought out the ‘trauma junkie’ in me,” said graduate Raquel Adams, who completed her externship there. “I was excited to go to my externship every day; I didn’t know how exciting family medicine could be.” 

ETMG has hired several National College graduates, and nurse supervisor Kathy Payne is impressed by the skills with which they come equipped. “National College students assisting in quality patient care at ETMG, either during their externships or as hired employees, bring with them a great deal of training, education, and skill,” she said. “It has also been a pleasure to work with the professional staff of National College."
