“I like the medical field because I love helping people. I knew at a young age I wanted to have a career in the healthcare profession. I’m really into women’s health too, so it’s perfect that I work at an OB/GYN office,” Shanice Rogers said.
Shanice is currently a Clinical Assistant for Dr. Viloria, MD in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center located in Boston, MA. She was hired after graduating the Professional Medical Assistant program at The Salter School in Malden, MA.
She is a very influential employee at her work place, running the doctor’s medical clinic a few days a week, assisting with minor medical procedures and accompanying the doctor on her rounds.
She explained, “I assist the doctor with pap tests, colposcopies, biopsies and birth control procedures, such as IUD placement. I also help the doctor treat her obstetric patients, checking on their progress and helping with delivery.”
Shanice enjoyed her time at The Salter School while obtaining the proper medical assistant skills she needed for her career today. She was President of the student council and involved with many other school activities. “I loved it. I miss going to school to this day. I had the most amazing time,” she said.
“Without my decision to go back to school, there is no way I would have the job or chances that I have now. I have no worries about my future at all. I have an amazing job with amazing income that enables me to send my boys to private school.”
Shanice plans on completing a nursing program to become an OB/GYN nurse. “The sky is the limit now and I owe it all to The Salter School.”
