hi, i start school tomorrow. how exciting.  Here is my history so far. I need to take medical terminology, anatomy, filing records, two advanced computers (regular typing course and microsoft-specialist), medical office procedures, billing specialists, cpt and icd-9 coding as well. i only took so far filing records, advanced computers, and medical office procedure. Tomorrow i would be taking  medical terminology and anatomy for the first time. By the summer I would like to be an intern in a medical office as a medical assistant or anything. ( i just want to get my foot in the door) Only problem is I havent took any coding classes yet until this Fall 2007. I would be taking the billing specialist course in the summer since its ONLY taken in the summer. What intern or volunteer work can I do for the summer in the medical field thats similiar or even close to medical billing without taking any of the coding classes yet? I would just like to gain experience in the medical field because i read a few post and they too also got there foot in the door because of interning doing office work and etc. Please help.... :D

Thanks alot

What exactly are you wanting to hear?  Because this has already been answered for you on the MAB forum.  But then, maybe you were unable to find it amongst the 10 or so identical posts that you posted.

Steve gave you good advice - relax!  Settle down and let things happen when and how they're supposed to happen.  Don't start trying to arrange things you don't have the authority, permission, or even at this point knowlege to arrange, and don't start putting the cart before the horse.

Take your classes in their prescribed order and let your school take care of what they're supposed to take care of.

And relax!

        Hi! just read your message and I would love to take the intern job that you offer. I really need to learn more. I'm having a difficulty of getting a job because I have no outfield experience. I graduated in Medical Billing and Coding 2 years ago and everytime I had my interviews they always said that I need to have an experience and be certified. How can a person get an experience if they dont let them do it . I just dont understand they checked my resume and call me for an interview and then they will just tell me that they cant hire me because of no experience and state certified. Please , Im so willing to be train here at home if I understand you right but if not just let me know if you dont take intern job at home.  Im planning to take my CPC exam by next year please help me.Thank you so much

Hi Bianca,

Would you please tell me how the internship would work at home?  I already have an Associates in Medical Administration but did not get certified in the medical billing and coding.  I am currently taking a refresher course in Medical Billing and hope to finish by June at the latest.
I would also like to know if you have any tips in how to get in the door of these medical offices?  It has been frustrating seeing how all these places that advertise, all want someone with 2 or 3 yrs of experience.

How can you intern at home? I am certified with AHIMA, but new to the field and therefore as you know everyone is looking for experience that you cannot get without actually working.I am interested if you can help me.

For your sake, I sincerely hope that the job market/intership opens up next summer.  I graduated and passed the CPC in May and have not landed an entry level position or an internship.  No one is willing to take on an newbie.  Check out AAPC for xternship possibilities but they do not do much for new persons entering the field.  Best of Luck.

I just passed the CPC certification and am looking for an intern opportunity or a position that I can work from home.  I have an 8-5 job now that I will leave in a year to pursue a coding postion.  Do you still have opportunities?
