Are there free medical training programs in NYC? Are you interested in studying medicine but you are a little bit tight on your budget? If so, you will love the article that Insider Monkey published lately about this topic. As for me I am not really involved in studying medicine as I have always been bad at chemistry, and math – so it is not my field, I am afraid. But I have always respected those who are very good at sciences and can spend long nights with studying these subjects. It is not only the question of abilities but many times the question of money, too. Fortunately you can find lots of training in New York City, but many times they are pretty expensive. If we add the costs of living to these expenditures – well, we can feel hopeless to study at medical training programs. But Insider Monkey now has good news for you: there are free programs for those who want to develop themselves and want to change their career.
In order to get the right information for their list, Insider Monkey consulted sites like the Department of labor of New York State, Thought Co., New York Public Library, Staartclass, and New York Times. As a matter of fact the list has no particular order for now, because each program has a different focus and there is no way to compare and rank them.
We have chosen three medical training programs from Insider Monkey’s list: Phlebotomy, Nursing assistant Program, and Medical Billing and Coding. Phlebotomy is offered by Office of Adult and Continuing Education, and you can study lots of things here from infection control to electronic health records. The total course lasts for 60 hours and it will cost you to take the final exam. Students must attend the Nursing Assistant/ Medical Billing and Coding course beforehand. Nursing Assistant Program is also offered by Office of Adult and Continuing Education. You can be a full-time student (5 months) and you can have night classes (10 months)This course also covers a range of interesting topics, it is worth doing it. Medical Billing and Coding is offered by Office of Adult and Continuing Education, too. This course lasts five months, and if you choose it, you will study computer and internet technology, pharmacology, healthcare law, and a number of other medical profession-related topics. Only with high school diploma.
