I didn’t know anything about medical coding until I came here. But when I started studying at STCC, I definitely loved it.

“My fiancé was in the United States, and I followed him here in 2015. I left everything behind. I was a pharmacist for almost eight years in India. When I came here, I started with nothing. I had to start from zero.

My fiancé did some research and found medical coding. STCC was close to my home in West Springfield. I didn’t know anything about medical coding until I came here. But when I started studying at STCC, I definitely loved it. I graduated in January and was hired full time as a coder at Baystate Medical Center, and I love it.

All the professors at STCC are so helpful. I love this place, and I’m coming back. I may pursue an associate degree in coding. Whenever I come back, Professor McKethan is the person I’m going to!

My advice is that if you’re doing something, do it with your full heart. If you are not spending your money, someone is spending their money on you. Take it personally. Take it seriously. Come here with your full heart. If you have doubts, just ask the professors here. They are awesome.”

“Sabiha has been an excellent student. She participated in class and added to the conversation. Other students recognized her as an outstanding student. She was driven; she was serious. We have the Health Informatics and Information Management (HIIM) program that I think Sabiha would thrive in when she returns.”
