If you want job placement assistance, I know that there is one online training school that can help you with that after you graduate. Here is a link I found to their site http://www.careerstep.com/coding/?uid=a1鈥?/a> They even have a demo of their training that you can check out!
I saw on the department of Labor's website that medical records and health information technicians (which includes medical coders) had a median annual salary of $28,030 in 2006.Medical coding and billing how easy to get job?
The salary depends on where you are, not sure about that. But what I've run into is it's hard to get into coding/billing, but totally worth it. You will probably have to start out entry-level, so don't be surprised if you don't get a coding job right out of school. You have to work you way up, but once you do it's worth it.
