Alexis Marie Antoszewski
I am a graduate of the May 2012 Health Management Systems class with a minor in general business. While at Duquesne I was the Vice President of the Health Management Systems Student Society and a Resident Assistant for two years. I completed volunteer work with UPMC comparing privacy standards, had a part time job as a Health Information Technician for UPMC Mercy, completed the University of Pittsburgh Summer Associates Program as well as two internships with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center all within the last two years of school. My education at Duquesne coupled with my desire to volunteer and learn through the help of UPMC allowed me to accept a job offer before my senior year was completed.
I accepted an offer as a Systems Analyst Associate and began working a week after graduation. The role I accepted is working with the FirstNet, Charge Services and XR teams within eRecord. I work with emergency rooms to develop and maintain their tracking boards for patients, help clinicians correctly charge for procedures and medications, and help end users print portions of the medical record. I have since been promoted to Systems Analyst Intermediate on this team.
Since graduation I have purchased a house in the North Hills and am now engaged. I am completing graduate school for a Masters in Healthcare Administration.
I think much of my success at Duquesne was due to the hard work and dedication I was taught by my family and residence life. Residence life had a huge impact on forming me into a successful leader, sculpting my time management skills and really encouraging me to be an outgoing individual who strives for success. The individuals I have met through residence life have really helped formed me into the goal oriented, focused and driven individual I am today. Additionally, I would never have been able to volunteer and commit so much of my time to internships and volunteer work without the contacts and encouragement I received from the professors within the Health Management Systems program. Professor Cousino and Dr. Kiel are two of the most passionate, encouraging and helpful professors I encountered at Duquesne. Without their help and dedication, I would have never been able to accomplish nearly as much as I did during my time at Duquesne.
