Medical Transcription through Penn Foster
February 21, 2012
I have worked one year after completing my certificate for MT. Writing papers, the section on the legal system and general office procedures were a waste of time. Most, if not all, of the course should focus on medical terminology in all fields as well as hands-on typing of reports. I wish I could recommend this course but have actually steered several friends away from it. I did like the on-your-own pace.

medical billing and coding
March 14, 2011
I am 10 months into my medical billing & coding courses, and I find Penn Foster to be a great online school. I have a B.A. degree that I acquired several years ago at Idaho State U. so I know what it is to study in a high-quality school. Yes, it takes self-discipline to study on your own, but Penn Foster offers the materials and resourses to get the job done. Their texts are well ...

Don't make the mistake I did.

Don't expect any help getting a position after you graduate. They also do not inform their students that you must have 2 yrs experience to land a medical transcription position or take the certification exam that will cost you at least $600. Would not recommend this corse unless you have the finances to be certified.

Mix Feelings of thsi school
October 28, 2010
I have mixed reviews on Penn Foster Career School, mostly not good though. First of all, the fact that it was a "work at your own pace" school for the medical transcription program made me choose this school since I am a busy mother of 3 kids. Well I started the course around April of 2009. I paid my tuition in full around January of 2010. A few months after that, I recieved a notice ...

Medical Transcription

Received my certificate in Medical Transcription. I received an A, but that didn't matter. I have finally given up on getting a job as an MT. Do not go through this course, it is not worth your time or money. If you really want to become an MT, enroll in M-tec. I told my friend to enroll in M-tec and she is already working.

Do not do Dental Assistant!!!
December 10, 2009
Ok, so I started the Dental Assistant program a few months ago, and it all seemed GREAT!! But, little did I know, they are not an accredited school!!!! Yes, they are accredited in some ways, but not in the ways for getting a state license to work. I found this out two weeks into the program, and I HAVE to finish seeing how I'm using military funded money. I have to pass..which isn't a's ...

Melissa, I have the same problem now. I just finished this course with Penn Foster and I found that it is not enough to find work. Recently, I contacted a medical transcription company which told me that I have to enroll in their intern program to be able to work with them. They told me that I have to pay $300 for this program. The program is to complete 40 hours or 4000 lines of transcription. I wonder if you had to pay for the intern period you had with your company? please help me choose the right company.

Penn Foster is by far the best college ever invented. It's convenient, ofcourse, it's also affordable. I have completed a certification as a administrative assistant. I'm going back next year (if it's in God's Will) to get my BS in business management.
