““I was struggling to find a degree program that would allow me to attend school and still maintain a full-time job. After researching several programs, I chose UC Online because it’s CAHIIM Accredited and offers degrees in both Health Information Systems (HIS) and Health Information Management (HIM). After successfully completing both of these programs, I can say without a doubt, that UC Online is the real deal! The Professors are amazing, the programs offer real-world experience, and the classes can be scheduled in a way that’s best for you. After graduating with my Associate’s in HIS, I received my RHIT credentials and landed my first medical coding job at a company I had always wanted to work for. I went on to complete my Bachelor’s in HIM, which opened even more doors for me, not only with my current employer, but with companies all over the U.S.! UC Online far exceeded my expectations. Although I live all the way in New Mexico, I’ve built professional relationships that I will maintain for the rest of my life!””
