‘Finally, all my hardships and struggles in UAE paid off’


Another Filipino Institute student has successfully passed the medical coding exam through the help of extensive training in the educational institution. 

Marconi Franz T. Villanueva, a registered nurse, recalled her medical coding journey: “My medical coding career has started when a kabayan printed a reviewer, and I was curious at that time and I asked him out of curiosity. He said, ‘medical coding exam reviewer.’ I thought about it and I asked what was it about? He told me to check it on Google,” she said. 

“And I started to search for schools conducting medical coding course, and I saw a social media post from the Filipino Institute with affordable price, hence, I started to visit their office and enrol the course,” she added. 

Villanueva said she paid fully as she was eager to finish it. She said that there are rumors that once a class started, around 20 students attend, however, in module 4, the class will be cut to 10. 

She thanked Prof. Yuri Arboleda for pushing her to finish the course despite putting it on hold for five months due to the movement restrictions imposed by the UAE government. “Then we finished the course and we did the mock exam, unfortunately, I was not able to finish the exam as I forgot to wear my watch. Timing is very important in order to take the exam so I ask sir, ‘Can I take the exam already?’ and he told me to review more so as not to waste money if I wasn’t ready yet,” she added. 

After the mock exam, Villanueva did a self-review for the next two months as advised by Miss Jernie Brubio Arquizar, who is also a medical coding training in the same training institute.

“And I took the exam without informing them. And today, when I woke up, I was supposed to check the link of my church online on my email, but the CPC’s email was the first thing I saw, notifying me that the result was ready,” she said.

“Salamat po ama, dining niyo po ang aking samo’t dalangin,” she added.
