Branford Hall Reaches Out to Albany Residents

Admissions are underway for Medical Assisting and Medical Coding classes

Attention Albany residents! The Branford Hall Career Institute is proud to be a part of the Albany community. Located here in the state’s capital city, our school wants to help people get back on their feet, get job training, and get started in career fields that they can be proud of.

At our Albany campus, we offer two career-focused programs that provide students with the skills, knowledge, and job-readiness skills they need to get started in the job market. Both of these programs can be completed in less than one year. No prior experience is needed.

Medical Assistant Programs

This program trains students to become medical assistants. Medical assistants work in doctors’ offices, clinics, out-patient centers, hospitals, nursing homes, and other medical facilities. They measure patients’ vital signs, take patient histories, prepare exam rooms, assist with front office functions, and generally provide assistance that doctors and nurses need to keep the office running smoothly.

Medical Billing and Coding

This program is a good fit for the student who wants to be in the field of healthcare, but doesn’t want to work directly with patients in a clinical setting. Medical billers and coders have desk jobs where they are responsible for processing health insurance claims through private insurers, Medicaid, and Medicare. Their work is important to ensure that healthcare providers are paid for their services.

Our student body at the Albany location is the best! As a small school, we have the opportunity to get to know our students personally. It is so meaningful for us to watch our students grow in their knowledge and confidence from the day they walk in the door to the day they graduate. Who are the typical students at Branford Hall?
