"This is a horrible school. Many teachers are sub-par. Many have to be corrected by students. This school does not give an education. All coursework can be found in a Google search. Nothing is taught. Career Services is a joke. They want you to look outside of what your diploma or degree is. One suggested I try to get a job as a transcriptionist or telemarketer. Why would I have obtained a degree in medical billing and coding if I wanted to be a telemarketer? This school tells lies to have student enroll. You cannot work as a medical coder remotely straight out of school. Most places require 3-5 years in office coding and also want you to have a CCS license or CPC-H. Both take additional schooling and exams. The other thing employers want is RHIT or RHIA. Do yourself a favor, enroll in an actual university. Most offer online classes and the degree you obtain through an actual university will take you further than this joke of a school. Now if you want easy, no brain required then by all means UMA is for you. If you actually understand how to make a complete sentence and have a general knowledge of spelling and punctuation UMA is not for you. You will be as frustrated as I have been. Run away."

"I attended Ultimate Medical Academy online for two different programs. The first was Medical Office Billing and Coding Specialist diploma and the second was my Associates in Health Science. During the time I was attending UMA I found the staff and instructors very helpful and they were always there when I needed help or had a questions. I never thought that I would ever attend school again, until I spoke with a staff member from UMA. UMA offers a great support system for people who are worried about school or for those who doesn't have a strong support group at home. The faculty and staff are some of the nicest people I have ever talked to or dealt with and they helped reach my goal of getting a degree that will allow me to work in the Medical Field. The faculty and staff take the time to check in a touch base with you to see if you are having any problems or have any questions. They have a way of inspiring you to want to work hard to accomplish your goals and dreams. I would recommend UMA to anyone who is serious about taking classes or getting a career within the Medical field. The faculty and staff at UMA made my online learning experience the best on that I have had before. Ultimate Medical Academy is an amazing school that will help you work around any obstacles that may stand in you way of getting a good college education and a degree toward whatever venue you choose within the Medical field. Without UMA I would not have accomplished getting a diploma and an Associates degree."
