Shrewsbury, MA (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
The American Healthcare Documentation Professionals Group (AHDPG), a leading online training and workforce development company announces the launch of its “Sizzling” Summer Scholarship program. The program is designed to eliminate any barrier to enrollment and help our graduates join the healthcare workforce as quickly as possible.
“Healthcare documentation plays a vital role in the healthcare industry and job opportunities in medical transcription, medical billing, medical coding and medical scribing are a natural career path for many individuals with or without previous healthcare experience”, says Peter Reilly, President and CEO. "Our “Sizzling” Summer Scholarship program offers prospective new students the opportunity to enroll in one of our training programs at the lowest prices of the year and a simple to use monthly payment plan, with no interest."
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical transcription, medical billing, medical coding and medical scribing are amongst the ten fastest growing allied health occupations and employers are actively seeking qualified candidates. The industry is projected to grow by a staggering 15 percent over the next seven years, resulting in the creation of an additional 80,800 new jobs during this timeframe. This growth is being driven by the recent passage of the Affordable Care Act, the aging of the population and the country’s move to a new coding and reimbursement system (ICD-10) in 2014.
As a result, the time is now, for individuals interested in pursuing an exciting, rewarding, stable career in healthcare. The programs which qualify for the “Sizzling” Summer Scholarship program include our:
