How do I get a job or externship?

A: First of all, you need to network yourself, go to your local chapters, and I would look into Practicode because you can do that from home.

Q #24: Do your medical coding courses teach how to code or how to pass exam? I did an online medical coding course and I did pass exam, but I’m not comfortable with knowing what and why I am doing something (sorry, does that make sense?)

A: We teach you how to code and how to pass the exam, we do both. “But I’m not comfortable with knowing what and why I am doing something.” Yeah, we kind of specialize in helping you the why’s behind the what. We tell you, what you have to code and then they’ll tell you why –

Alicia: “Do your courses teach how to code or how to pass exam?” We do both. We teach you how to code and we also teach you how to pass the exam. “I did an online course and I did pass exam.” Good!

Offer to code for free, go into an office and say, “Hey, I need experience. Can I help you get caught up? I’ll do it for free for two weeks.” It’s like, “OK!”
