Pheng - Medical Billing & Coding

Before Summit College

I worked for a California surf company. After the bad economy hit, they had to lay off some people, and unfortunately I was one of them. I was sitting at home, so I took a shot and I came to Summit. I took a tour and saw what I got to learn. The hands-on training. The one-on-one instruction. The communication between the students and the teachers. I looked at other courses at other schools and they offered similar type programs, but the thing with Summit was that it had more of a core, more of a family.

While at Summit College

I chose the medical billing and coding program because I knew that the medical field is a vital part of our community and society and we’ll always have a vast need for medical workers via doctors, nurses or in my case medical billers and coders. When I went to class I started learning things that would be applicable in the workplace, so I wasn’t just getting the books, I was learning hands-on skills too. I learned from mentors that I knew when I reflected back after being done with school and graduating into the workplace, I could call them anytime.

After Summit College

I am so surprised when I go to work every day. I look forward to it. I never know who I’m going to meet. I never know who I’m going to help. And I’m always learning something new. It has changed my life for the better. I have a job that I could depend on and go to every day. I have work that I could be proud of and share with people. I have a direction and could only go up from here. Going to Summit would be a good turning point for you if you wanted to get into the medical field or take other courses that they offer. They’ll help you. It’s ultimately up to you to get to where you need to be, but Summit’s a good, good asset to have to help you get there.
