Thank you for one of the most enjoyable courses I have taken online so far. As an inactive LPN who is considering going back into the medical field I really appreciated all of your invaluable insight. I didn't realize so many non-clinical opportunities are available. I do not want to return to nursing, so I am glad to know I can make a difference behind the scene as well.

This class was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to get a feel of what an admin does. With my new knowledge, I plan on taking additional courses. This class was perfect for me! Thank you so much, Carline! This course was easy to understand and yet managed to challenge me.

Carline, thank you for the interesting learning experience as an AMA. This course was perfect for me and now I am going to move on to the Medical Terminology Course and others. The coding is very intimidating but I am up for the challenge. Thanks again for the great learning experience.

Well... thank you again for such a GREAT course. It actually was the first time I ever took an online class. Was doing pretty good until all that medical coding tripped me up, ha, ha. You made me laugh and I can only guess some of the other participants/students also, with your "lightening ups" in parts of your lessons. : )

I currently have experience in this field, but I wanted to take this course to get a little bit more education on the topic, and I have to say it really paid off. A lot of the things that were covered was very familiar to me, but I also learned a lot of other things as well. This was an awesome class, and it covered a number of different topics, which were very helpful tools to further my career in becoming a medical billing clerk in a children's hospital. I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking to pursue their career in the medical billing field. The next class I want to take is Medical Terminology, which I think will also benefit me in my career field. Thank you!

I would just like to say thank you for opening my eyes to what goes on behind the scenes before I receive my bills from the doctor's office and the hospital. This was all new to me. I recently had a patient encounter with my mother in an outpatient department and I felt right at home and didn't stare in a daze at what was being done. I was quite excited that I actually knew what they were doing. I even recognized that they coded the procedures in the outpatient procedure room. Thanks again, this was a great course and I think I might even try other courses offered in this field.

I enjoyed this course immensely. I often wondered what a AMA did during their eight or nine hours of work. They have a busy and exciting job, a lot falls on their shoulders especially, when it comes to coding and billing. I wish to continue my career in a hospital, nursing home or home care office. I find this job very challenging and exciting. I will continue my career by taking courses in medical terminology, transcription, anatomy, grammar, billing and coding, and Spanish.

Thanks for teaching such an informative and well-organized course! I think it really helped me to feel more confident in my new position. Though I'm still learning as I go, I would like to learn more about office management. I would also like to be able to improve and teach procedures and policies in the medical office I work in. Obviously, I need more instruction, and more experience, and hope to continue by taking more courses. Thanks for the great help!

I learned a lot and the experience was great! Ms. Dalgleish was professional, informative, and encouraging. She was also very kind in her assessments. There were a couple of funny moments as well. In any event, thank you so very much.

Thank you very much for this course. It is extremely useful and informative. I can now envision a day at work, for each of the positions that come under the title of AMA, including specific tasks and skills needed to perform each task. I'm currently exploring sites from the Supplementary Materials and local college course offerings. This course will make my decisions much easier.
