Am seriously considering going this route so that I can retrain into a different career...I went there yesterday and was talking to an advisor...originally to find out more info on either Unit Secretary or Medical Receptionist and they both (dept. head happened to be in the office too) were steering me more in the coder field.

Any insight would be much appreciated!

Laura

I used to work for a company that made medical billing software. The coders that we dealt with made some pretty nice bucks. I'd think finding work or even starting your own business should be an easily attainable goal. Something to consider.

I tried to encourage my wife to look into it, but she doesn't want anything to do with anything "medical".

Thanks! Guess I'm a little worried about how difficult it'll be...probably have a good idea as to how easy it would be for me to learn after taking the Medical Terminology class.

A former co-worker took this there and was employed pretty quickly after certification. I don't think it was easy but she had done this work earlier in her career before certification was necessary for employment so she knew what she was getting into at least.
