From CMA to LPN: Meet MTI Graduate & Springfield Clinic Team Member Terry
Terry Payne didn’t know what he wanted to do for a career, but when Midwest Technical Institute (MTI) visited his high school, he knew he wanted to help others. “I’m a hands-on person,” Terry said. At MTI, Terry would get just that.
MTI’s Medical Assisting Program provides hands-on training in both a classroom and lab setting. Upon successful completion of the program, students obtain their medical assisting certification when they sit for and pass the American Association of Medical Assistants’ (AAMA) National Medical Assistant (CMA) Certification Exam.
“My experience at MTI was overall really good. The teachers were really great, the classes being smaller sizes, you get a lot more of that one-on-one time and direct learning. If you’re struggling with a certain topic, they really take the time to help you out,” Terry said.
Before graduating, medical assisting students at MTI complete a 10-week externship that gives them real-world experience in the health care field. The externship experience also helps students identify what type of position they may want to pursue after graduation.
MTI coordinates externships with students and several local health care organizations, including Springfield Clinic. “I picked a specialty that interested me, cardiology, and went to Springfield Clinic. There are multiple ways you can help people in cardiology and keep them out of the hospital. Knowing that I’m contributing to that solidified the decision for me,” Terry says.”
Terry graduated from MTI in October 2019 and was hired in the Cardiology Department at Springfield Clinic after the completion of his externship. He will celebrate his third anniversary with Springfield Clinic in October 2022.
Now, Terry is expanding his credentials from CMA to Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) with the pathway program at Springfield Clinic. He’s excited to expand his scope of practice. “I’ll be able to use my new skills to provide better care to my patients,” he says.
