FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Friday, June 5, 2009

With federal stimulus funds earmarked to boost electronic medical record keeping across the country, Hudson Valley Community College’s Workforce Development Institute has partnered with Andrews & Holbrook Training Corporation to provide much-needed medical transcription training.

The college will offer a combination of online and live-online instruction training beginning June 27 and later this fall for those interested in entering the medical transcription field. The course is offered in a hybrid format, with a portion of the training offered in a live-online setting, and the greater portion of the instruction offered online for independent study. On-going access to the instructor is a highlight of this course.

The medical transcription and medical billing fields are expected to grow over the next decade, and career opportunities are excellent for qualified candidates in these fields, according to the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Andrews & Holbrook Training Corporation, located in Latham, was created in 1999 and now operates the largest New York State-licensed proprietary school focusing on medical transcription, medical billing and medical coding in the Capital District.
