I am attending the CHCP Southwest Houston Campus, and I am currently enrolled in the Medical Coding and Billing Blended Program. All I can say is stay away. I am confident the goal of this school is to make money and a lot of it. From the start I was lied to. I was told I would be prepared and sitting for the CPC exam upon completion of the program. I found out later that was not true. I would be sitting for a national certification exam, however if you search the acronym online for the certification you will find it is unknown and not what employers are looking for. Furthermore the program itself is a joke, for a lack of better terminology. The courses are done in 4 weeks mods, when I began my second mod I was thrown in with students that were completing their 5th or 6th mod. I was doing coursework that was meant for people that had attended school for 6 months. I am now in my last mod and I am being assigned coursework that I already completed in my 2nd mod. I have yet to actually learn anything from an actual instructor. The information that I have learned I sought from forums and online tutors outside of the school because I am taking this career choice very seriously. I made several complaints I even went up to the president of the school. Let's just say everyone covers each other's back at this school when it comes to staff. The director of the program has flat out lied to students and one instructor can't even pronounce the terminology she has been given a job to teach. Please stay away from this school it is a complete waste of your time and money. I am blaming myself I should have done better research but if you want to become a medical coder and biller take the courses that are offered at AAPC. I paid $17,000 dollars for a complete scam of an education.
The teachers were amazing ! It was a very nice school but there was one problem.. after graduating the people there to help you find a job were HORRIBLE!! Its been a year since Ive graduated AND STILL NO JOB!! Do not waste your money!!! Im now thousands in debt and stressed
I graduated October 12, 2017 with an Associated in Applied Science for Health and Medical Administration. My purpose for going to this school was just to get my associates so I could go to school online at U of H online since they require an associates to go to school online. Online schooling is not for everyone but it completely works for my schedule. I was diligent with my work and I had that ambition to get my degree. And yes you are doing this all by yourself, but the instructors were very helpful and encouraging so it made doing this class work easy. The one thing I can say that I don't like about this school is the administration portion of it. It takes them forever to send your transcripts, not to mention it took over 4 months to get my diploma. Also this school is only Nationally accredited so transferring into a major university is not possible. Most universities accept Regionally accredited schools as do many employers ( if you are trying to get reimbursed for tuition). So going to U of H was now out of the question but I was accepted at HBU with my associates! So still check with your potential school that is if you want to pursue a higher degree to see if they will accept the transcripts. Overall this school wasn't that bad, it was such a great accomplishment to at least get started with my associates.
I am writing a review as a 50 year old graduate of CHCP Dallas Campus. I took a leap of faith at age 50 years old, after 30 years in Customer Service and trusted this school, with my life, to help me make a career change. My heart has always wanted to be in the medical field, and choosing CHCP Dallas Campus was the best decision in my life. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this school and it's medical assistant program. This school prides itself with employing the best teachers for the classroom. The medical assistant instructor is an actual, retired medical assistant, therefore, she knows the field and teaches you from real life experiences which translates to a real life experience in the classroom. You have an instructor that is truly passionate about what she is teaching and you feel the passion as she stresses the importance of being the best CMA and having integrity The support you get from everyone is, hands down, the best educational support imaginable. From the President, to the Director of Education, Ms. Donna Duncan, such an asset to this school. She is the beacon of light and will guide you through your most challenging times. To the Instructors, Mr. Davis, hands down the most passionate, real, loving MA Instructor I've been blessed to teach me in my 50 years. All the way to the Career Development, the ones that find you that perfect career, that job you've always wanted, Ms. Coleman, what a go getter, truly dedicated to her job and the placement of her students. From day one, until you take that final exam and gradutate and beyond, this staff is checking on your progress, periodically calling you, just to check in and ensuring you that they are ALWAYS there for YOU. So if you're looking for a new career and you are not sure which school, medical assistant school to choose, I can promise you, you cannot go wrong when choosing THE CHCP DALLAS CAMPUS.
This place is a joke! They give you an overload of work and confuse you. The instructor I had was very unprofessional and talked way too much about her personal life! I couldn't learn what I needed and ended up with a student loan in my credit for absolutely nothing! I didn't finish the program needless to say, I went to consolidated nurse aid training in sugar land and paid $1100 to take a 3 week program and I am now getting ready to take my state exam. I wish I would have never got mixed up with this terrible place. All so called colleges like them are all scams in my opinion. They just take your money. No good at al!
I am an instructor at CHCP and I love teaching my students. I am finding that the content of the program does not match the needed knowledge for the physical therapy technician. I teach a blended program and enjoy the flexibility but the pay and the micro management is becoming quite a problem. Basically I am getting part time pay for full time work. i guess I would not complain too much except for the fact that over management is a big problem. Almost on a daily basis, we get additional requirements to complete and many of them are redundant. I think that our outcomes should speak for themselves and management can become involved when it needs to. It is not good practice to punish the masses for the problems of the few instructors. I have been asked to participate in programs and events without expecting to get paid and have even been told to attend events just because it is a day of pay. Corporate has also been hiring many high level directors and managers to further scrutinize our efforts. I do not understand why grown adults need to be so tightly managed. My feeling is that we are paying too much money, in this organization, to too many people that are performing oversight and management. What about paying the instructors what they are really worth -- after all this is where the real work is being done -- if you cant keep instructors because of the pay and the huge time commitment, then you will continue to have a very large turnover. I understand that this is a for profit education organization, but they should consider getting back to basics and pay attention to the curriculum, the instructors and the students. I have never had to follow up on students, like they are Soldiers, in any education platform. If they sign up and pay the money, they should be held to common standards or be removed from the program. There is too much emphasis on retaining students, just for profit and for great reporting statistics. There is too much favoritism going on with the directors and the students as well as the staff. if you want a proper education system, then run it like an education system and hold all students to a standard or send them home!
My instructor Mrs. S is GREAT!!! I Love the way she took her time with us. She was firm and stood by her word. I want to Thank You again. IF YOU WANT IT YOU WILL WORK HARD FOR IT. READ AND REREAD!!!! THANK YOU CHCP for the great experience.
The dental assisting program opened many doors for me, my teachers always believed in me and pushed me to be the best of the best.I always had the support and the help I needed.I recommend the dental assisting program due to the fact that it's a nice feeling to see someone feel confident about their smile, so why not make it possible.
This is a horrible schooI, I graduated in May and I still haven't received my license, I can't even find a job without them, they are not helping me at all. I did everything that was asked of me. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone, I hate that I went to this school.
Best decision I ever made. Great, caring staff and excellent career placement support. Just started my new job this month and loving it. I attended the Houston Northwest Campus. From the moment I enrolled, they really made me feel welcomed and cared about my success. I would recommend CHCP highly.
