Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee), Gainesville, FL – February 7, 2013
Pros: i love to teach
Cons: the compensation was not on par with typical local agencies
I provided assistance to the Allied Health Department shortly after receiving my MBA. I was able to teach students entering the healthcare field about medical record review, electronic medical records and the importance of documentation within the record.
I was also tasked with teaching students looking to obtain their coding certificates. Inpatient – more... and Outpatient coding positions are very important within the healthcare field; I was able to teach the theory and application of medical record coding.
The only downside to this position was that it felt as though some students didn't have their heart in it. I was very lucky to have students who were attentive and very much wanted to learn so they, in turn, could obtain a position within their field after graduation. – less

My co-workers were of a highly mature nature, dilligent workers everyone stuck to their daily task. highly focused individuals in which their attitude and great sense of work ethic led me to great accomplishments on the job.
The hardest part of my job was having to deal with hundreds of student applications a day, and making sure everything was close to perfection individually.
The most enjoyable part of this job was me being able to make errands to all 6 different buildings the campus consisted of. i absolutely enjoyed exploring the many different building this school Campus had. – less
