Hannah Looney, CPC ’19
Certified Medical Coder at Ascension Sacred Heart
“Medical office admin can give you the tools to go far in your career. Not only does having a B.S. look good on paper, but I feel I was given the tools for success. All the classes that I was required to take were very practical. You can be a medical coder without getting a B.S., but then you missed all the computer training and all the general information on professionalism. I was able to jump into my job after getting my medical coder certification and not miss a beat. Sure, you can skip college and just get a certification, but with a degree, you would be qualified for leadership positions and better pay.
I am very passionate about health, and I am fascinated by the human body and medicine. There is always something new to learn in this field, which is good for me because I tend to get bored easily. This major and now my career is just a perfect fit for me!
