Pictures From Medical Billing and Coding Schools in San Antonio

Pictures speak louder than words: one of the best ways to know that you will enjoy attending a school is by seeing for yourself. These photos show what you can expect from various medical billing and coding schools in San Antonio to give you an initial glimpse into the campus life.

The College of Health Care Professions
CHCP offers a 35-week program called Medical Coding and Billing – Health Information Technology. Through hands-on training and an externship, you will learn all you need to take the entry-level certification exam and begin working as a medical biller, medical coder, medical records technician, or health information technician.

Southern Careers Institute
The medical billing and coding program from SCI is available at both San Antonio campuses and online. The program is just 40 hours long, allowing you to quickly enter the job market with the skills and experience you need to succeed. Upon graduation, you will be eligible for four certifications: Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS), Electronic Health Records Specialist (EHRS), Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA), and Microsoft Word. You will also gain 15 skills badges — another way to demonstrate your knowledge and abilities to potential employers.

Palo Alto College
At Palo Alto College, the medical billing and coding program consists of six courses: medical terminology, pathophysiology, medical insurance and billing, CPT and HCPCS, ICD-10 CM, and the certification exam review. You can complete the entire program in nine months and may start with any course you wish, although the school recommends that students begin with medical terminology.


Lamson Institute
Students of the medical coding training program at Lamson Institute learn how to use various types of software to process medical insurance claims and receive instruction in how to analyze the benefits. Upon graduation, you will be able to work in an entry-level position as a medical biller, medical insurance specialist, medical coder, medical records clerk, medical billing specialist, hospital admitting clerk, or medical administrative assistant.

Kaplan College
The medical coding training program at Kaplan College teaches students many of the basics needed to work as a medical insurance coder or biller. You will learn about medical office skills, medical coding, medical insurance billing, analyzing records, assigning the correct codes, and supporting medical research in a health care setting. Plus, all students take part in an externship at an approved facility in San Antonio for the chance to gain real experience and improve their chances of finding employment. 

Checking out photos of medical billing and coding schools in San Antonio is a good place to start, but it is not enough to go on to make your final decision. Find out the important facts — such as the cost of tuition, how much you can receive in financial aid, and whether a school is accredited — before deciding where to enroll.

What SCI Students Are Saying

“I made a complete career change when I started my training at Southern Careers Institute. I needed a stable career to continue providing for my growing family. SCI provided me with the medical terminology and know how that I needed to understand and acquire a career in the medical field. SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”


Denise S.
Medical Assistant

“I am extremely grateful for the assistance I received from SCI’s Career Services team. I enjoy where I work and what I do. SCI has helped me succeed in life by getting me the necessary education and by making me a stronger and more confident person.”


Raquel S.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”


Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”


Bonnie M
Medical Assistant

“I am now a certified Lab Tech. SCI helped me get an externship, and I came out with a job. After my little sister had cancer, I knew I wanted a career in the medical field that allowed me to help others. I am happy about what I do.”

“Southern Careers Institute totally surpassed my expectations. Once I finished school, the Career Services team helped me find a job. I would tell anyone thinking about starting career training that you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain. I wish I would have started my training sooner.”


Valerie D.

“I am very happy with where I am and where I’m going. Through high school, I struggled with math. When I came to SCI, I enrolled in the Business Accounting Specialist program to see if I could do it. SCI provided me with the accounting skills I needed to help me find a career. Now, I have an amazing career and room to grow in the company.”
