    00:00:22S4Recommend for other health care employers that work with Lincoln Tech. I highly recommend that they learn a little bit more about the externship program. That's actually something I had a personal interest in it

    00:01:02S6Guests.

    00:01:03S1So I am Michelle Jones, and I'm a medical assistant instructor at Lincoln Tech in Morristown, New Jersey. I've been a certified medical assistant for 23 years, and I've been training medical assistance for 11 years.00:01:18S5As an instructor, can you fill us in on the medical assistant program and what it consists of and even some of the tasks that students are responsible for.00:01:26S1Medical assistance work in outpatient facilities. So those facilities are doctor's offices, are urgent care centers. We have students work in outpatient surgery centers, health departments. We even have graduates work at state and county correctional facilities. So our medical assistants are running the front office and the back office. So in addition to their clinical skills, our medical assistants are work in the front desk as well. They work scheduling appointments, confirmation calls. They're working in patients, electronic medical records. They're getting into the billing, insurance and coding part of health care and their clinical skills. They're on the back end doing direct one on one patient care. So they're doing the vital signs patients, blood pressure, pulse, respiration. They're taking the patient's temperature, height, weight measuring, maybe if they're in pediatrics, measuring the infant's head circumference in length

    .00:02:27S5That's quite a job description. It must take a good deal of training and practice to be able to manage all of that.

    00:02:32S1So in addition to those things, the medical assistant is also running EKG on a patient's heart. They're drawing blood, doing phlebotomy. They're assisting in minor office surgeries and assisting with just the physical exam with the physician. So there's a lot of duties that a medical assistant is responsible for, from the front office to administration to the back clinical side of it.

    00:02:58S5How long does a program typically take?

    00:03:00S1So our medical assistant come to school for? It's about eight month program. They do six five week modules or six five week ter

    Women In Trades

    Women In Trades

    On this episode, we'll get the insight from women in the skilled trade industry about how trades aren't just for men and how women are making solid careers out of the programs offered by Lincoln Tech.

    Lincoln's mission is to provide superior education and training to our students for in-demand careers in a supportive, accessible learning environment, transforming students' lives and adding value to their communities.

     

     

    Alison Neuman, Program Manager of Workforce Development at Johnson Controls, Inc. - Buildings Solutions North America: The skilled trades are for everyone. I agree that stereotypically we would say or in the past it's a male dominated career. But being a technician in the field is a phenomenal opportunity for both men and women.

     

    00:00:18

    Morgan Woodtke, Lincoln Tech Graduate and Diesel Technician: My advice to any woman who wants to get into this, don't be scared.

     

    00:00:23

    Jennifer Hash, President of Lincoln Tech’s Denver, CO campus: When I got into this industry, I would say probably about 3 to 5% of our students were female. I looked at it today at the Denver campus.  11% of our students are female. You know, there's creative things with collision. It's not just wrenching on cars.

     

    00:00:39

    Host: Welcome to the official podcast of Lincoln Tech. On this episode, we'll talk to the women who encourage other women that are currently working in the trade industry and how the trades aren't just for men anymore.  Lincoln Tech’s mission is to provide superior education and training to our students for in demand careers in a supportive, accessible learning environment, transforming students’ lives and adding value to their communities. Now let's chat with the women who make the trades program great.

     

    00:01:03

    Hash: I'm the campus president at Lincoln Tech in Denver, Colorado. We are a skilled trades college and we train technicians in auto diesel, HVAC, collision, electrical and welding.

     

    00:01:17

    Host: I always thought that women weren't interested in the trade field, but I'm guessing that I'm wrong here.

     

    00:01:22

    Hash: Women got into the trades, I believe, during World War two, when soldiers had to go off to war. Women went into the factories to build airplanes and ships and everything. That's how Lincoln Tech was founded. When soldiers were coming back, we wanted to make sure that they were trained and had a skill that they can go into work and get back into society coming from the wartime. Over the years, we saw the decline in women being in skilled trades after that when the men came back. But recently it is still definitely a male dominated industry and our focus with the skilled trades gap is women were an untapped resource to be able to make sure those skilled trades continue to move on and that gap closes. We talk about it all the time and with the high school students, with the adult students that we need people not just going the traditional university route.  We need students to be able to go into the skilled trades since there is such a need in those industries.

     

    00:02:24

    Host: What would you say to the women out there about the program?

     

    00:02:26

    Hash: I would just say skilled trades is an amazing opportunity for anybody, even though it's a male dominated field, that women can be very successful in it. It's all about getting that education. And Lincoln Tech does provide an amazing education for skilled trades and has that support system. We work with a lot of industry employers that want to grow their female population and their female staff, and we're here to help that. We're excited to help with it and it is a great industry to get into being both with the education being only about a year and    then working with our career services department to obtain those employment opportunities.

    Neuman: My name is Allison Newman. I'm the program manager for workforce development for Johnson Controls and I support workforce developmen

There is a bevy of knowledge and there are some fantastic instructors within the program. They can teach you a lot of lot of great things. Go in with an open mind. Don't think you know everything.

     

    00:00:43

    Chef Pauli Milotte, Senior Culinary Recruiter for the Walt Disney Company: Lincoln has not just taught the same old brigade of cooking and plating. “This is the way we learned it, and that's the way you're going to learn it.” They have modernized the steps and the adjunct instructors and the chef instructors have kept up with the industry very well.

     

    00:00:54

    Host: Welcome to the official podcast of Lincoln Tech. Lincoln Tech's mission is to provide superior education and training to our students for in-demand careers in a supportive, accessible learning environment, transforming students’ lives, and adding value to their communities. On this episode, we'll find out more about the Culinary Arts program from instructors, employers and former students. So let's get cooking.

     

    00:01:15

    Silva:  My name is Leslie Silva. I am a chef de partie at Pineapples and Pearls in Washington D.C., and I graduated from Lincoln Culinary Institute back in May of 2022.

     

    00:01:30

    Chef Shamal “Shimmy” Watkins, Lincoln Culinary Institute Graduate and Chef de Partie: My name is Shamal Watkins. I actually go by Chef Shimmy. I graduated from Lincoln Tech in September, but I actually finished in March. I work right now at the University of Maryland as chef de partie, or assistant chef. So it's a fun transition that I had. I actually started my externship in January, and by the time I finished my externship, I was looked at as a candidate to become a full time cook. I then became a chef in July. It was a quick transition from one position to another to another.

     

    00:02:11

    Crouth: I’m Chef Pete Crouth and I am a chef instructor at Lincoln Culinary Institute in Shelton, Connecticut. My background - I've been doing this going on 40 years. I co-authored an award-winning children's nutrition book titled The Green Box League of Nutritious Justice. I also won a national recipe contest, the grand prize winner of the Louisiana Sweet Potato Recipe contest. And I won a grand prize for my BLT sweet potato hash, which was bacon, leeks and tomato. We won't go on from there, but that's enough, right?

     

    00:02:48

    Host: That sounds delicious. I wish you could go on, but we'll talk more about food in a second. So, Leslie and Shamal, what are your stories about making the decision to enroll in the culinary arts program at Lincoln Tech?

     

    00:02:58

    Silva:  It was just kind of pursuing culinary, I think. I originally took the traditional route after high school of going to four year college, and I wanted to major in food science and nutrition. And then I kind of figured, well, this would be a lot more fun if I got the fundamentals of culinary down. I did my research from there and fell in love with the idea
