How did you get your start doing medical records technician work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

I am a current student in an R.H.I.T. program at my local community college. Majority of these programs are offered online. Go to www.ahima.org to learn more about this particular Associate's Degree. This, from I have learned, is the beginning phase of getting your foot in the door.

I am a hit student at Minnesota state and plan to take my RHIT in May. I want to work with Indian Health, i am not Indian decent. Are you having any luck. My school has two clinicians and the second one is 5 weeks. I guess that will count as experience. .
