I live in SW Minnesota and I am having a terrible time finding an internship in Medical Billing. I am set to graduate in April 2007 but I can't graduate without completion of an internship.  Please help!!

Your school would be responsible for setting up your internship.

No they are not. This particular school wants us to find our own internship, thus my stress.

Talk to your own doctor's office. See if they can let you sit there while they work and you can watch. Also, ask to do some of the work.
It is terrible that a school require and internship and then doesn't provide it.

I agree!  What kind of school is that?  I might have a talk with the accrediting agency if it were me.

I actually found an internship but its in medical records. I'm worried because of my lack of experience in medical billing and/or coding that I won't be able to find a job that will hire me as entry level.  Can anyone help?? I live in the SW metro area of MN
