A Few Ways Allen School Medical Assisting Students Can Prepare for Graduation

If you’re a student who is about to graduate from the Allen School of Health Sciences or another medical assistant or healthcare program, you must be so excited! We’re thrilled to share this moment with you. Even though you’ve been waiting for this moment for years, there are some things you should do before you walk virtually or physically across the stage and put your last classes behind you.

Here are some ways you can prepare for your upcoming graduation:

Make sure you’re good to go.

If you haven’t already, connect with your academic department to be sure that you are in fact graduating. You’ve probably already received confirmation, but it’s always good to check. You should also make sure your student account is current. An unpaid balance might deter you from receiving your physical diploma post-graduation. Treat your graduation like you were physically walking across that stage. Ask about your regalia. Start planning what you’re going to wear the day of graduation. Graduation is the completion of your journey and the start of a new one. So, CELEBRATE!!

Work hard until the end.

With your graduation day in sight, it can be easy to lose focus and want to rush the last couple of weeks of class. But it’s important to keep up your hard work and finish strong. You might have a couple clinicals left or finishing an internship, Remember, your final grades will depend on how well you finish. You can do it!

 Send thank you e-cards or handwritten notes.

 Without the encouragement and support of those along the way, you might not have made it. Write thank you notes to anyone who supported you, including your significant other, family members, friends, and even your instructors.

Ask for letters of recommendation.

You wouldn’t be earning a medical assistant certificate if you didn’t want a successful outcome. Letters of recommendation from your instructors and professional contacts can help ensure you land an excellent job after you receive your diploma. Future employers will be impressed by well-written, honest, and positive recommendations! The Allen School of Health Sciences career services department is here to help.

Acknowledge your hard work and celebrate.

Earning your certificate in medical assisting isn’t easy. You put in a lot of time and energy into it, so be proud! Look back at everything you’ve done to accomplish this and get excited for the future ahead.
