Internships for Medical Coding and Billing
I have just completed the Medical Coding and Billing program at my local college and I'm currently looking for Internships to gain some experience. I would like to get some guidance/experience under my belt before taking the certification exam. I have noticed that a majority of the open positions require at least 2 years of experience. I have yet to find any listings for internships in my area nor have I been able to connect with anyone (by word of mouth) who claim to need interns. I have talked to a couple of temp agencies about possible openings but to no avail. My next step is to approach the Urgent Care centers. My question is how can I market myself as a Medical Coder and Biller, with no experience, so that someone will give me the opportunity to work for them?
