Get Into Med School and Get Undergrad for Free!

It’s not that Raam Venkatesh didn’t have one heck of a fun time filling out applications to a dozen colleges, from New York University to UCLA. It’s just that, all things being equal, he would be perfectly content not to have a similar experience in three years, when he and other current high-school seniors who have their hearts set on becoming physicians will be applying to medical schools. Venkatesh, who graduated from Lakeside High School in Augusta, Ga. in June 2009, has known since he was a kid that he wanted to be a doctor (he’s thinking cardiology), but that doesn’t mean he wants his choices about what to study as an undergraduate to be dictated by what medical-school admissions offices expect. So the offer from the University of Alabama at Birmingham was one he couldn’t refuse. If he kept up his grades and got decent scores on the MCAT, the med-school admissions test, UAB would guarantee him a place in its well-regarded med school—no application required. “I was really attracted to the program,” says Venkatesh, pausing. “But the guarantee was important.”

And did I mention that tuition for the UAB program that feeds students into its med school is free? “That you can have a place reserved for you in medical school, and go to college free, is beyond the imagination of many parents,” says bioethicist Greg Pence of UAB, director of the school’s Early Medical School Acceptance Program. “People ask, ‘Why is the best student in Edison, N.J. going to college in Alabama?’ EMSAP is why.”

The Association of American Medical Colleges lists 43 bachelor’s-M.D. programs starting with admission in 2010. They vary in detail, with some offering a curriculum that lets students graduate with both degrees in six years (University of Missouri–Kansas City) or seven (Northwestern and 16 others). But in most, students complete their undergraduate work in the standard four years and then matriculate at the med school associated with that college, including the University of Southern California, Brown, and Rutgers. The programs have been growing in popularity, says the AAMC’s Gwen Garrison, with 145 students graduating with the two degrees in 2005 and 282 in 2008.

But acceptance into an undergrad–M.D. program has a cost, literally: the appeal of guaranteed admission to medical school means the undergrad part of the deal generally comes at full price. “Med school is such powerful bait, you don’t have to offer scholarships or much financial aid,” says Pence. UAB has, of necessity, adopted a different philosophy. “If you’re a bright student in L.A. thinking of Harvard and MIT, you’re not thinking of college in Birmingham,” says Pence. “Some people arrive here expecting the Klan to meet them at the airport. We have to sweeten the pot.”

Admission to the UAB program is based on board scores (it’s looking for a 34 on the ACT or a 1520 on the math-verbal SAT), an interview at the med school, a solid record of AP courses in math and science, and a strong high-school transcript with a GPA of at least 3.5. It was only in 2007 that UAB began to recruit out-of-state students; in 2009 it accepted 12 students from California, Texas, Missouri, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Michigan, as well as Alabama. All qualify for scholarships that cover tuition and, in some cases, books and housing.

The UAB program includes standard premed fare, with about 10 required courses in organic chemistry, biology, physics, math, statistics, and other premed classics. There are also required seminars in subjects such as bioethics. But the guarantee of admission to med school means students can choose courses, and even majors, that in regular undergrad programs might hurt their chances with the med-school admissions office. UAB’s EMSAP students can major in music, Spanish, or anything else as long as they fit in the premed requirements. Jason Lott, who was a freshman in the UAB program in 1998, earned a B.S. in math and a B.A. in philosophy. “I was able to take a lot of classes in a lot of different fields” because he didn’t have to sweat med-school admissions, says Lott, who hails from Anniston, Ala. Nor did an untraditional (for a premed) major hurt him in med school.

The freedom to reject a traditional premed major is a big enticement to this year’s freshmen, too. “So many students who want to go to medical school focus on being a premed, but I hope to have an opportunity to focus on other things, such as business and ethnic studies,” says Allen Young, who graduated from high school in Madison, Wis. in 2009 and is starting the UAB program. “This program lets you keep your options open.” That accounts for a lot of its appeal. Michelle Chang, who graduated from high school in Edison, N.J. knows she wants to be a doctor (she job-shadowed a pediatrician during high school) but is not so sure about the traditional premed grind. She is interested in bioethics and arts, especially painting, and expects to pursue those and many other subjects outside the list that med schools look for. For her, the guaranteed admission to med school means her undergrad years will be much less pressured than otherwise. “I didn’t want to do the Ivy path and the traditional premed because I’d be with hundreds of other students who’d be competing to go to med school,” she says.

That doesn’t mean students can coast. Although all the programs, including UAB’s, toss around the word “guarantee” when they describe the path to med school, that comes with an asterisk. Students have to maintain a certain GPA, for one thing: at UAB it is 3.6, and if you fall below that you’re on probation and have one year to bring it up. If you don’t, or fall below that level again, you’re out of the program (the average GPA for students admitted to the med school through normal channels to the University of Alabama is 3.85). These days, about 15 percent of students flunk out of UAB’s EMSAP, and half are on academic probation during one of their four undergrad years. But the program’s rigor, record, and reputation have skyrocketed. Pence, who became director of the program a decade ago, also made the MCAT mandatory. Now EMSAP students have to get a 28 to continue on to Alabama’s med school; other med schools have their own minimum. Pence also encourages students to apply to other top medical schools. Although that means that competitors “cherry-pick the best EMSAP students,” UAB makes it up at the front end, attracting a caliber of student who might not otherwise consider college in Alabama.

One such student was Lott, who was the first person in his family to attend college. He applied to several medical schools during his undergraduate years at UAB and eventually chose the University of Pennsylvania. “I was more than adequately prepared for med school,” he says, something he credits to “the analytical training I got, and learning how to handle large amounts of material.”

Other graduates are now fellows or residents at teaching hospitals affiliated with, among other med schools, Harvard, Penn, Yale, Duke, and Baylor, as well as UAB. Joyce Hsu, for instance, went from the UAB program to Vanderbilt medical school and is now doing a residency at Children’s Hospital in Boston, one of the Harvard teaching hospitals. Suzanne McCluskey, a 2009 grad, continued on to the University of Alabama School of Medicine. “The security of having a spot reserved for me in medical school takes so much pressure off the undergraduate experience,” she says. “I felt I could do everything I wanted, from research to a year abroad [in South America] to courses in human rights—THINGS that are really hard to do with a traditional premed program.”

And did I mention it’s free?

Nurse Practitioner School Requirements and Prerequisites

Source: *U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Nurse Practitioner School Requirements

Nurse practitioners (NPs) are registered nurses (RNs) who have training and education beyond the bachelor’s level. While requirements vary by specialty and state, all nurse practitioners are required to obtain a master’s degree.

Degree Information

Nurse practitioners are required to earn at least a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) from an approved nursing program. These degree programs are designed to prepare students for primary care and specialty practice. Topics of instruction include advanced pathophysiology, ethics, advanced nursing practice and other related topics. A Master of Science in Nursing program takes about three years to complete and is presently the minimum educational requirement for an NP.

Licensing and Certification Information

NPs must obtain a license from the state in which they work. Requirements differ by state but may include completing a state approved nurse practitioner program or obtaining certification from a nationally recognized certifying organization.

Criteria for certification varies by area of specialty. Certification specialty areas include family care, adult care, geriatrics, mental health, school nurse and diabetes management and consist of 500 didactic hours and from 500 to 700 clinical hours. Certification is available from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, Pediatric Nursing Certification Board and other organizations.

Nurse practitioners are allowed to prescribe medication. Regulations differ by state; some states (i.e. Arkansas and California) allow NPs to prescribe controlled substances, while other states (i.e. Alabama and Florida) do not.

Prerequisites

A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is a prerequisite for enrollment in a Master of Science in Nursing program. The BSN curriculum consists of courses in anatomy, physiology, nutrition, microbiology and nursing. The BSN takes four years or so to complete.

In addition, applicants to a nurse practitioner program must be currently licensed registered nurses. Criteria for licensure varies by state, but generally calls for completion of an approved nursing program, clinical experience and passing an exam known as the National Council Licensure Examination or NCLEX-RN. The National Council of State Boards of Nursing developed this exam.

To summarize, in order to become a nurse practitioner, you must hold a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree and be a registered nurse. At this time, a master’s degree is the bare minimum qualification. You should note that the American Association of Colleges of Nursing recommended that Doctor of Nursing Practitioner (DNP) become the minimum requirement to become a certified nurse practitioner.

    While Woodland Hills Private School is open to all students and not exclusively for gifted, talented and high achieving students, many families choose WHPS for the advanced and enriched academic program. Over the past few years, with the adoption of cutting-edge curriculum and enhanced teacher training, we have found new ways to help our high-achieving students reach new heights.

    To that end, we were pleased this week to receive our students’ ERB results from the spring. This assessment compares our students to peers in private and independent schools across the country, and unlike the test children take in California public schools, the ERB uses a constructed response section to look at students’ thinking, not just multiple choice questions. Thus, it assesses critical thinking at a much deeper level.

    Here are the results from this year’s graduating class:

    LOGICAL THINKING: QUANTITATIVE REASONING, MATHEMATICS

    • 60% of our students scored in the 8thstanine, which means they were in the top 11% of students who tested nationally .
    • 87% of our students scored in the 7th stanine, which means they were in the top 23% of students who tested nationally .

    LITERACY: READING, WRITING, VERBAL REASONING

    • 53% of our students scored in the 8th stanine, which means they were in the top 11% of students who tested nationally .
    • 73% of our students scored in the 7th stanine. which means they were in the top 23% of students who tested nationally.

    Parents in grades 3-5 will be receiving their child’s individual ERB score report via email this week. Please watch for this email and don’t hesitate to contact the school office if you have any questions.

    Pasadena Criminal Attorneys

    Pasadena Criminal Defense Lawyer

    The Pasadena Police Department any other law enforcement agencies in the San Gabriel Valley generate thousands of arrests each year. These cases are sent to the Pasadena Courthouse at 300 East Walnut Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101 for prosecution. This court is considered a hub and the Los Angeles County District Attorney s Office maintains a Branch Office at the Pasadena Courthouse. In addition, the Pasadena City Attorney s Office is responsible for prosecuting misdemeanor offenses which occur within the City of Pasadena.

    Anyone arrested for a crime in Pasadena should consult with an experienced and respected Pasadena criminal defense attorney immediately. The following are some of the more common criminal offenses prosecuted in the Pasadena region.

    Theft Offenses in Pasadena

    Pasadena is home to many high-end retail establishments and as a result there are numerous arrests and prosecutions for theft offenses. including shoplifting, that are litigated at the Pasadena Courthouse. These theft offenses can either be felonies or misdemeanors, depending on the extent of the theft and the defendant s criminal history. Those who are arrested for theft will often be cited for an arraignment date at the Pasadena Courthouse. It is very important to contact a criminal defense attorney experienced in handling Pasadena cases right away if you receive a citation for theft.

    Pasadena Domestic Violence

    Domestic violence arrests are also very common in the Pasadena area. Law enforcement take these crimes seriously and will pursue criminal charges against those arrested. In many cases, the alleged victim has no interest in pressing charges, however the prosecutor can, and often will, pursue criminal charges even without the cooperation of the victim. It is absolutely critical to meet with a qualified criminal defense attorney as soon as possible, as the early intervention before a case has been sent to the prosecutor can result in charges being rejected or reduced significantly. In addition to domestic violence involving those who are married or in romantic relationships, domestic violence offense also include elder abuse and certain other assault and battery cases. These are often considered domestic violence crimes and those convicted may be subject to mandatory sentencing provisions.

    Pasadena White Collar Offenses

    White collar crimes can include a number of different criminal offenses, including grand theft, embezzlement, credit card fraud, computer crime, mortgage fraud, identity theft and many more. The loss suffered by a victim does not have to be extensive for an offense to be considered a white collar crime, however the extent of financial damages can often steep. Prosecutors and law enforcement officers take these crimes very seriously as they often involve taking advantage of a position of trust or feature a high degree of criminal sophistication. These cases often involve complex legal issues and extensive amounts of evidentiary material and anyone who has been charged with a white collar crime or who believes they may be under investigation for this type of offense should speak with an attorney experienced in handling complex criminal matters immediately.

    Drug Crime in Pasadena

    Every week, law enforcement officers in Pasadena conduct arrests for a wide variety of drug crimes. including possession, production, drug sales and possession for sale. These can be very serious charges and anyone facing drug charges in Pasadena should speak with an attorney right away.

    • The College of Science and Technology (CST) requires students pursuing second degrees to submit a statement of goals. CST makes the final determination of admissibility. Students wanting to complete prerequisites toward professional programs should contact Continuing Studies .

    High school performance. We require an official high school transcript for students who have completed fewer than 30 college credits. We may review your high school work as part of our admissions decision.

    Essay. This is your opportunity to describe the reasons you are looking to transfer, explain any academic trends or tell us something that is not evident in your application.

    Recommendations. Although not required for transfer students, we accept letters of recommendations.

    Extracurricular activities. Tell us about what you do outside the classroom.

    Standardized test scores : If you have at least 15 college credits, SAT/ACT scores are usually not required for transfer admission unless our Admissions Office requests them.

    Transferring credits

    There’s no limit to the number of credits we accept, but you must complete at least 45 of your last 60 credits at Temple in order to receive a Temple degree. Our Admissions Office will let you know which credits are acceptable through a mailed official credit evaluation after you’re admitted. Generally, Temple accepts academic, college-level courses beyond the developmental level completed with a grade C or better from schools with regional accreditation. Each academic department determines how credits apply to the major, and students meet with advising units during on-campus registration. For more information about transferring credits to Temple, check out our bulletin .

    Temple also awards college credits for students who in high school participated in the Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate programs.

    The Transfer Equivalency Tool is designed to help current and prospective students determine how their college-level academic credits may transfer to Temple University. Use these tables to find the current listing of available Temple equivalents to classes at various two-year and four-year institutions as well as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and CLEP exams.

    Temple’s Dual Admissions program

    We’ve established Dual Admissions agreements to help students transfer smoothly from local partner, two-year colleges. Students who have completed 30 or fewer college credits may enroll in the Dual Admissions program through a partner community college. Enrollment in Dual Admissions guarantees admission to most majors at Temple if the student finishes an associate degree with a 2.3 or higher GPA. Dual Admissions also guarantees additional scholarships to students who graduate from their community college with a 3.3 or higher GPA.

    To enroll in Dual Admissions, simply fill out an Intent to Enroll form at your participating community college. The semester following your enrollment in the program, you will receive a letter confirming your enrollment in Dual Admissions. Then, in your final semester, you will fill out the Temple application. There will be an option on the application asking you to indicate if you’re a Dual Admissions student. You must then send all official college transcripts to Temple for admission consideration. Scholarships are awarded only after Temple receives a final transcript indicating that you have graduated through Dual Admissions with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher.

    Trivia

    See the Philadelphia Museum of Art masquerading as New York s Metropolitan Museum of Art in Brian De Palma s Dressed to Kill. and more of the city itself in the same director s Blow Out

    The Grand Olympic Auditorium is a trusty standby for boxing and wrestling matches, in Ed Wood. Man On The Moon. Million Dollar Baby and Raging Bull

    Rocky location: The Rocky steps: Philadelphia Museum of Art, Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia

    In the year of Taxi Driver. All The President s Men and Network. this old fashioned fairytale of the underdog coming out on top took Oscars for Best Film and Best Director.

    The main location you ll want to see is, of course, the flight of 68 steps on which Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone ) trains.

    They’re northwest of downtown, and lead up to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Benjamin Franklin Parkway at 26th Street. From the top of the steps, look back along Benjamin Franklin Parkway to view the downtown skyline with a few more highrises than were apparent in 1976.

    If you want to see the art gallery s interior, see Brian De Palma s Dressed to Kill. where the gallery stands in for New York s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

    Rocky location: The end of the run: Philadelphia Museum of Art, Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia

    But although Rocky is set in Philadelphia. the film s locations are split between the City of Brotherly Love and Los Angeles .

    Rocky s neighbourhood is Kensington. north Philadelphia. where his apartment is 1818 East Tusculum Street. During training for his big break he runs past Philadelphia City Hall and through the Italian Market, Ninth Street between Federal and Christian Streets.

    The opening boxing match, though, with the religious mural overlooking the ring, is in Los Angeles. It s the Oscar de la Hoya Boxing Youth Center, 1114 South Lorena Street in East Los Angeles .

    The press conference is held in the, since demolished, Ambassador Hotel, which stood at 3400 Wilshire Boulevard. Closed and shuttered for many years, it was used in its later years exclusively as a film set.

    Rocky works out by pounding sides of beef at Shamrock Meats Inc, 3461 East Vernon Avenue at Alcoa Avenue, just south of the Los Angeles River in Vernon, southeast of downtown Los Angeles .

    Rocky location: the big fight: Olympic Auditorium, 1801 South Grand Avenue, downtown Los Angeles

    The climactic fight itself, against Apollo Creed, is also in Los Angeles. at the Olympic Auditorium, 1801 South Grand Avenue at Olympic Boulevard, downtown.

    All you need to know about home-schooling #what #do #you #need #to

    All you need to know about home-schooling

    From overcrowded classrooms to ruthless bullies, some children fare better when their education takes place at home. We tell you more about home-schooling and some SuperMoms who have chosen it.

    Don’t take the decision to home-school lightly

    Mari-Lynn Kent, who started home-schooling her daughter Emma (11) this year, wrestled with the decision to home-school for about a year. “It’s a big decision and if you make the wrong choice, your child suffers.”

    A number of factors motivated Mari-Lynn to home-school her daughter. Emma has a very busy extramural schedule, but trouble with bullies at school and the sexual conversations between 11-year-olds on the playground were also motivating factors. “I felt the care wasn’t there, especially when it came to the bullying,” says Mari-Lynn. “The child sitting next to Emma was hitting her. I had to speak to the teacher three times before she was moved.”

    Discipline is key

    Home-schooling allows Emma to focus on her passion – dance. “We try to work ahead, keeping Fridays open for her extramural activities such as ballet, piano, drama and choir,” says Mari-Lynn.

    Mari-Lynn, a mother of two, has a very structured approach to home-schooling. A distance education company supplies her with a curriculum and tells her what textbooks she needs. “I wanted everything under one umbrella. The company also uses teachers to set up exams and the curriculum,” she explains. “They advise you on how much work you should do each week so you don’t fall behind.”

    What about exams?

    The company requires students to write exams in June and December. “She can write them at home, but there needs to be a moderator. I’m not allowed to moderate, but can ask someone else, who’ll have to sign an affidavit, swearing that Emma wrote in an exam environment.”

    If Emma then ever goes back to a traditional school, she will have the certificates to prove that her education is up to standard and she won’t have to write an entry level exam. Mari-Lynn plans on home-schooling her daughter until high school. “Emma wants to go to a traditional high school and if she still feels that way later, then I’ll send her to one.”

    A more informal approach

    Other parents prefer an informal approach to home-schooling, says Bouwe van der Eems from the Association for Homeschooling. “Some parents prefer to be guided by the child’s interests, focusing on the subjects their children are interested in. You don’t have to follow a one size fits all curriculum like a slave. Parents can pick and choose from a variety of curriculums.”

    How do home-schooled children matriculate?

    From Grade 10 onwards, you need to follow the national curriculum if you want your child to finish school with a South African matric qualification. A home-schooled pupil must submit projects and write exams just like those in traditional schools. Parents can do this through home-school curriculum providers.

    Many people prefer the international matric qualifications, like the British Cambridge or US GED diploma, over a South African matric. “These qualifications are recognised by universities. Unlike a South African matric qualification, you don’t need to complete and hand in projects. You just prepare and write the exams,” van der Eems says.

    Benefits of home-schooling

    • A child can work at her own pace, says Anel Annandale, a Cape Town child psychologist. “Often children who are home-schooled learn to take greater responsibility for their own learning and development.”
    • It gives you and your child greater flexibility when it comes to time, says Annandale. “It allows a child with a specific gift for a generally time-consuming interest, such as a gifted gymnast or horse rider, to schedule schoolwork around her practice and training schedule,” she adds.
    • “Peer pressure, bullying and high levels of competitiveness are less often a factor for home-schooled children,” Annandale says.
    • Home-schooling can lead to closer family relationships, says Raquel Ferreira, a Johannesburg educational psychologist. “Extended periods of time together strengthen family relationships, not only between the child and his parents, but also with his siblings. As they get to know each other, the family members form bonds that last a lifetime,” she says.
    • One-on-one tutoring means that there is more time available to actually learn and teach, says Annandale. “Teachers in traditional schooling systems often waste a lot of time on discipline issues which arise purely because of the large number of students in a class,” she says.
    • “Home-schooling is often better suited to children with learning difficulties because parents can focus more in-depth on specific subject areas that their children struggle with,” Annandale says. “Many of the behaviour issues that are often associated with learning difficulties, such as the hyperactivity and impulsivity that children with ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) often exhibit are tolerated more easily in a home-schooling environment than it may be in a traditional classroom.”
    • If a child can’t cope in traditional or remedial school, then home-schooling might be your best option, says Megan Robinson, an educational psychologist from Johannesburg. “Home-schooling can work well for the unique child who’s tried all other options and hasn’t coped. Similarly, a child who’s suffering from an illness or physical difficulty may have no other option. A child with a severe emotional or social disorder will also cope well in a home-school environment.”

    Drawbacks of home-schooling:

    • “Home-schooling often offers difficulty for university entrance and coping skills,” Robinson says. “Often children who go through home-schooling battle to adjust to the demands placed on them in the tertiary environment or in the working world.
    • Children might miss out on learning opportunities, she adds. “Normal schooling teaches the child about more than just the general curriculum and provides the developing child with vital skills and life lessons. For example, it teaches social interaction, discipline and structure, moral development, leadership skills and other valuable life skills.”
    • Children who are home-schooled often miss out on healthy competition and extracurricular memories, says Ferreira. “Parents need to involve their children in club sports so as to still allow this area of development.”
    • It might be impossible for parents to juggle work with home-schooling. “Often a parent has to stop working so that they have time to home-school, but this then has the associated drawbacks of loss of income for the family,” Annandale says.
    • Annandale warns that home-schooled children sometimes have fewer opportunities to socialise with other children their own age and may become withdrawn and reserved in social settings. “Children who are very sociable or really enjoy or excel at group activities and group sports generally fare better in a traditional schooling system.”
    • Some subjects are best taught by skilled teachers, says Ferreira. “Some home-schooling parents have a hard time with subjects such as algebra or physics. Parents may need to look into the use of private tutors for this reason.”

    Beware the challenges

    • Home-schooling is hard work, says van der Eems. “You need to prepare and be willing to make sacrifices, especially when it comes to your time. The home-school never closes. It’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
    • Home-schooling isn’t the norm, he adds, and not everyone might agree with your choice to home-school your child and you might often need to defend your choice.
    • Schools have more teaching resources than home-schooling parents. “Parents may not have access to the same resources that schools do. For instance, practically demonstrating a chemistry experiment may require a lot more effort and money than it would in a traditional school with a fully-equipped science lab,” Annandale says.

    Are you ready for the responsibility?

    Home-schooling is a huge responsibility warns van der Eems. “When you take your child’s education into your own hands, you take on a huge responsibility,” he says. “It can weigh on your conscience and you can question if you’re doing the right thing for your child’s education and their future. However, there are many support groups and internet discussion forums where parents can support one another and ask for advice.”

    An overview to the medical claims process from coding to billing #school


    #

    Medical Billing and Coding Online

    Course 1: The Medical Claims Process

    The United States healthcare system is trillion-dollar industry, which includes pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies, medical equipment manufacturers, and medical care facilities. The complex infrastructure that keeps this industry, which is responsible for the well-being of millions of Americans, running on a day-to-day basis relies on specialized professionals tasked with overseeing these operations. One such system is the medical claims process. The claims process can be summarized as a dual interaction between two of the largest and most important pieces of the healthcare system: healthcare providers and medical insurance companies.

    Understanding the Key Players in the Medical Claims Process

    The relationship between policyholders, healthcare providers, and insurance companies is essential to understand before tackling the details of the medical billing and coding process.

    Healthcare providers

    A healthcare provider is any facility or practice where you receive and are billed for a product or service related to your personal health. Healthcare providers include hospitals, private clinics, and pharmacies as well as specialized care providers like nursing homes, in-home caretakers, and chiropractors.

    Insurance companies

    Health insurance companies subsidize medical care for qualifying patients, called policyholders. Health insurance is not mandatory in the U.S. but many Americans have insurance coverage, whether they purchased it privately or obtained it from their employer or the government. Insurance policies vary, but they all operate under the same business model: policyholders pay a certain amount of money each month or year to the insurance company, which is called a premium. If policyholders need procedures for which they qualify, the insurance company pays for that procedure, either in full or in part.

    Policyholders

    A policyholder is any individual who has purchased health insurance. For example, a young adult looking for a basic insurance plan may purchase a policy where the insurance provider will pay for all medical bills that cost more than the deductible, which is a pre-arranged amount that the policyholder must pay out-of-pocket before insurance coverage kicks in.

    How Medical Claims Work

    The medical claims process is initiated when a policyholder goes to a healthcare provider for a medical service, which can be anything from obtaining a monthly prescription to major surgery. After the policyholder receives the service, they are usually financially responsible for a deductible, which is the amount of money that the policyholder agrees to pay before their insurance starts. The policyholder gives their insurance information to their healthcare provider, and the transaction between the policyholder and healthcare provider is complete.

    Behind the scenes, the transaction between healthcare provider and insurance company begins. The healthcare provider records all the medical services and their costs offered to the policyholder. This record is known the medical claim, or bill. While working for healthcare providers, medical billers and coders are responsible for creating this record and sending the claims out to the policyholder’s insurance company, which has three options. It can:

    • Accept all expenditures and pay the bill in full
    • Deny the claim on account of a billing error (like incorrect patient information). The bill is then returned to the healthcare provider to be corrected.
    • Reject the claim outright, usually on account of the services not being covered within the health plan. The policyholder then pays for the service out of pocket.

    Working with Insurance Providers

    The two major types of insurance providers are managed care plans and public insurance. Learn how to handle both types of coverage below.

    Managed care

    A large portion of insured Americans receive coverage through their employer, usually through managed care plans. These insurance plans work with a specific group of doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, labs, equipment vendors, and other care providers. Individuals insured under managed care plans seek medical services within this managed care network. The three main components of managed care are preferred provider organizations, health maintenance organizations, and point of service plans.

    • HMOs require their policyholders to receive most or all of their medical care under the insurance provider’s managed care network. They also require policyholders to select a primary care physician. If HMO policyholders see a specialist without a referral from their primary care physician, or seek treatment outside of the managed care network, they will most likely have to pay medical bills out of pocket.
    • PPOs also have a network of preferred healthcare providers they request their policyholders to seek treatment from. However, unlike HMOs, individuals do not need to select a primary care provider. Also unlike HMOs, if an individual seeks treatment outside of the managed care network, they can pay the out-of-network healthcare provider directly and possibly get reimbursed for their medical expenses.
    • Point-of-service Plans: Point-of-service plans form a hybrid between PPOs and HMOs. As with HMOs, point-of-service plans allow you to select physicians and services from within a dedicated network of providers. Unlike HMOs, patients can receive care from out-of-network providers, but they will likely have to pay a deductible.

    HMOs and PPOs differ in the insurance claim process. All healthcare providers within a managed care network must file a claim with the HMO. So long as services are rendered in-network, policyholders are not required to file anything themselves, and healthcare providers may not bill the policyholder directly. In the case of PPOs, policyholders may have to file a claim to their insurance provider if seeking treatment outside of the managed care network. Filing claims to insurance providers isn’t necessary for POS plans.

    Public insurance coverage

    The government is also a major provider of insurance coverage in America, through public programs called Medicaid and Medicare.

    • Medicaid is a health service program designed for low-income individuals and families. Medicaid recipients receive health coverage decided by the state in which they reside, though some coverage is federally mandated, such as inpatient and outpatient hospital care. Within this system, states make payments on a fee-for-service system or through arrangements with HMOs.
    • Medicare is another government-funded insurance program for the elderly. Like Medicaid, certain medical services must be covered for Medicare recipients, such as hospital stays and nursing care. This basic coverage is called Medicare Part A. Recipients may also receive coverage in Medicare Part B, also called Supplementary Medicare, for services such as medical equipment, x-rays and labs, and outpatient hospital visits. Recipients of Medicare Part B must pay a monthly premium and pay an annual deductible. There are also Medicare Advantage plans where users can create custom plans that meet their specific needs.

    Wrapping Up Course 1

    The medical claims process is a dense, complex, but no-less crucial component to the healthcare industry. The following courses will dive deeper into the individual facets of the process referenced in this overview, including coding, insurance providers, medical billing terminology, and medical billing errors. These courses are designed to expand the knowledge base and technical skills needed to become a certified professional medical biller and coder.

    FBS: FOOTBALL BOWL SUBDIVISION
    (BCS & Other Division I Football Index Page)


    Get the Best Fight Songs (HQ Stereo) on 20 Different Music CD’s. Please Help Support This Site.

    Welcome to the “LARGEST” College Football Fight Song web site in the universe, where all the songs are now in MP3 format. I have always been a fan of college football and especially the Nittany Lions of Penn State. All the MP3’s on this site have been compressed 11 to 1 in size and reformatted in mono, all to help save webspace. It has been a rough ride these past 2-3 years as interest seems to hae waned a bit and it is more costly to keep the site up for FREE! And now certain schools like Miami (FL), Washington and Utah forced me to remove the school’s songs from the website, even though they are free to download and isn’t this kind of like FREE advertisement for those schools? And all those millions of dollars the football programs bring and to top that with the price of tuition, you would think they would want to share the songs with their alumni, current students and fans of those schools. If anyone can help, please do to get those songs back up and available on this site. I am also in the process of adding as many or all of the football schools from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). After completion, there will be well over 1,000 total songs for you FREE to download. I will also be reformatting all the music CD’s, moving teams to the correct conference CD and adding all the new schools, even the FCS schools.

    Also, you will still be able to purchase your favorite school songs via email for $5 or less per school or per conference. Especially the FCS conferences, where 1-2 schools songs will be prevailant throughout. You will want the higher quality songs for your ringtone(s) on your cellphone and iPhones. But please don’t forget about the CD’s, they also help in the funding for this site or shopping at one of the sponsors on this site. And if you are not considering a purchase at this time, please consider a friendly donation of $10 or $20 or any value at that to make sure this website stays up and running for many years to come and into the future. Thank you very much for your continued support.

    College Football Fight Music CD’s (21 Volumes)

    My College Football Fight Music CD/MP3 Store has changed many times over the years as the NCAA Football Conference realignment is a never ending process as money dictates which schools play in the
    (5) major BCS conferences and who play in the other FBS mid-major football conferences. My collection now contains 21 different CD’s, with Volumes 1 & 13 focus on all five of the power five conferences (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, PAC-12, SEC and Notre Dame). These same conferences are also focused on: Volumes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 19, 20 and 14 (alma maters). The mid-major conferences, which now include the AAC, CONF-USA, MAC, MWC an the SUNBELT are representive on Volumes 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15 (alma maters). I also now have different fight music CD’s (Volumes 16, 17 and 18 (alma maters) focusing on the schools from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). Of course it is impossible to include all the songs on the CD’s, thats for both the FCS and FBS CD’s, so you can also purchase the individual songs from each college for only $1-$5 each depending on the number of songs I have available. And if you already purchased in the past, at least a donation would be of great help to me. To send a donation, just click on the PayPal banner just below. Thank you very much.

    For any citation you input, the citator attempts to return all the documents in the Rutgers NJ Courts collection that include mention of that citation. Search results are displayed with an expanded “K.W.I.C.” display (your citation will be highlighted, and the results will include approx. 80 words before and after the citation). Here is what we are trying to do: with other popular commercial citators, you get either colored flags or code letters which are helpful, but naturally ambiguous. Others just give you a list of citing cases with no guidance at all. However with this citator, the goal is to give users enough information to make their own decision about the significance of the citing case, while keeping it short enough so that is not too much work.

    Please keep in mind, however, that the quality of your results is based on the quality of the citation you enter.

    [Tried it but got nothing? Our search engine is pretty flexible with minor variations in spacing and punctuation, but not entirely foolproof. Leaving out all periods and spacing will probably give you a failed search. For example: “133 F.Supp.2d 1254” will work, but “133 FSupp2d 1254” will not.]

    Violence

    Violence is an extreme form of aggression, such as assault, rape or murder.

    Violence has many causes, including frustration, exposure to violent media, violence in the home or neighborhood and a tendency to see other people’s actions as hostile even when they’re not. Certain situations also increase the risk of aggression, such as drinking, insults and other provocations and environmental factors like heat and overcrowding.

    Combination of NVP-AEW541 and lapatinib cooperatively inhibits the growth of NVP-AEW541 resistant murine rhabdomyosarcoma primary cell cultures with Igf1r/Her2 complexes. Cell viability assay for Na ve, untreated (U20325; A) and NVP-AEW541 innately resistant mouse rhabdomyosarcoma primary culture (U44676; B) treated with varying concentrations of NVP-AEW541, lapatinib, or a combination of both. Na ve cells (U20325) were sensitive to NVP-AEW541, but lapatinib had no cooperativity. In contrast, NVP-AEW541 at moderate doses increased cell growth in resistant cell cultures (U44676). However, this paradoxical effect was reduced by the addition of lapatinib, although lapatinib treatment alone had very little effect. C, the NVP-AEW541 resistant primary tumor cell line (U44676) was treated with DMSO, 5 mol/L lapatinib, 5 mol/L NVP-AEW541, and a combination of 5 mol/L NVP-AEW541+lapatinib for 25 minutes and Western blot analysis was done on lysates for p-Igf1r and p-Her2.

    Lapatinib Ditosylate weakly inhibits the activity of ErbB4 with IC50 of 367 nM, and displays >300-fold selectivity for EGFR and ErbB2 over other kinases such as c-Src, c-Raf, MEK, ERK, c-Fms, CDK1, CDK2, p38, Tie-2, and VEGFR2. Lapatinib Ditosylate significantly inhibits receptor autophosphorylation of EGFR and ErbB2 in a dose-dependent manner with IC50 of 170 nM and 80 nM, respectively in HN5 cells; as well as 210 nM and 60 nM, respectively in BT474 cells. Unlike OSI-774 and Iressa (ZD1839) which preferentially inhibit the growth of the EGFR-overexpressing cells, Lapatinib Ditosylate inhibits the growth of both EGFR- and ErbB2-overexpressing cells. Lapatinib Ditosylate displays higher inhibitory activity against EGFR- or ErbB2-overexpressing cells with IC50 of 0.09-0.21 μM, compared with cells expressing low levels of EGFR or ErbB2 with IC50 of 3-12 μM, and exhibits

    100-fold selectivity over the normal fibroblast cells. Lapatinib Ditosylate potently inhibits the outgrowth of EGFR-overexpressing HN5 and A-431 cells, as well as ErbB2-overexpressing BT474 and N87 cells, and significantly induces G1 arrest of HN5 cells and apoptosis of BT474 cells, which are associated with inhibition of AKT phosphorylation. [1]

    Oral administration of Lapatinib Ditosylate (

    100 mg/kg) twice daily significantly inhibits the growth of BT474 and HN5 xenografts in a dose-dependent manner. [1]

    Protocol

    In vitro kinase assays:

    The IC50 values for inhibition of enzyme activity are generated by measuring inhibition of phosphorylation of a peptide substrate. The intracellular kinase domains of EGFR and ErbB2 are purified from a baculovirus expression system. EGFR and ErbB2 reactions are performed in 96-well polystyrene round-bottomed plates in a final volume of 45 μL. Reaction mixtures contain 50 mM 4-morpholinepropanesulfonic acid (pH 7.5), 2 mM MnCl2. 10 μM ATP, 1 μCi of [γ 33 P] ATP/reaction, 50 μM Peptide A [Biotin-(amino hexonoic acid)-EEEEYFELVAKKK-CONH2], 1 mM dithiothreitol, and 1 μL of DMSO containing serial dilutions of Lapatinib beginning at 10 μM. The reaction is initiated by adding the indicated purified type-1 receptor intracellular domain. The amount of enzyme added is 1 pmol/reaction (20 nM). Reactions are terminated after 10 minutes at 23°C by adding 45 μL of 0.5% phosphoric acid in water. The terminated reaction mix (75 μL) is transferred to phosphocellulose filter plates. The plates are filtered and washed three times with 200 μL of 0.5% phosphoric acid. Scintillation cocktail (50 μL) is added to each well, and the assay is quantified by counting in a Packard Topcount. IC50 values are generated from 10-point dose-response curves.

    Facts and Case Summary – Morse v. Frederick

    Morse v. Frederick, 551 U.S. __, 127 S. Ct. 2618 (2007)
    School authorities do not violate the First Amendment when they stop students from expressing views that may be interpreted as promoting illegal drug use.

    Facts

    Joseph Frederick, a senior at Juneau-Douglas High School, unfurled a banner saying “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” during the Olympic Torch Relay through Juneau, Alaska on January 24, 2002. Frederick’s attendance at the event was part of a school-supervised activity. The school’s principal, Deborah Morse, told Frederick to put away the banner, as she was concerned it could be interpreted as advocating illegal drug activity. After Frederick refused to comply, she took the banner from him. Frederick originally was suspended from school for 10 days for violating school policy, which forbids advocating the use of illegal drugs.

    Procedure

    The U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska ruled for Morse, saying that Frederick’s action was not protected by the First Amendment. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit reversed and held that Frederick’s banner was constitutionally protected. The U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari.

    Issues

    Whether a principal violates the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment by restricting speech at a school-supervised event when the speech is reasonably viewed as promoting illegal drug use.

    Ruling

    Reasoning

    In Tinker v. Des Moines (1969), the Court stated that students do not “shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.” Tinker held that the wearing of armbands by students to protest the Vietnam War was constitutionally protected speech because it was political speech. Political speech is at the heart of the First Amendment and, thus, can only be prohibited if it “substantially disrupts” the educational process.

    On the other hand, the Court noted in Bethel v. Fraser, 478 U.S. 675, 682 (1986) that “the constitutional rights of students at public school are not automatically, coextensive with the rights of adults.” The rights of students are applied “in light of the special characteristics of the school environment,” according to the U.S. Supreme Court in Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier, 484 U.S. 260, 266 (1988).

    In the present case, the majority acknowledged that the Constitution affords lesser protections to certain types of student speech at school or school-supervised events. Finding that the message Frederick displayed was by his own admission not political in nature, as was the case in Tinker, the Court said the phrase “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” reasonably could be viewed as promoting illegal drug use. As such, the state had an “important” if not “compelling” interest in prohibiting/punishing student speech that reasonably could be viewed as promoting illegal drug use. The Court, therefore, held that schools may “take steps to safeguard those entrusted to their care from speech that can reasonably be regarded as encouraging illegal drug use” without fear of violating a student’s First Amendment rights.

    Concurrences

    Justice Thomas

    Justice Clarence Thomas concurred with the majority, but argued that, instead of making exceptions to the holding in Tinker, Tinkershould be overturned. Citing various scholarly sources on the history of public education, Justice Thomas argued that the First Amendment was never meant to protect student speech in public schools.

    Justices Alito and Kennedy

    Justices Alito and Kennedy concurred with the majority, but were careful to note that the majority’s decision was at the outer parameters of constitutionally protected behavior. These justices were concerned that the majority’s decision permitting the suppression of speech promoting illegal drug use could be used to punish those advocating constitutionally permissible, but unpopular, political ideas, e.g. legalizing medicinal marijuana use.

    Concurrence and Dissent

    Justice Breyer

    Justice Stephen Breyer argued that the majority did not need to decide this case on its merits, but could have decided it on the basis of the doctrine of “qualified immunity.” Qualified immunity prevents government officials, such as a school principal, from being sued for actions taken in their official capacities. This protection is in place as long as the legality of the conduct is open to debate. Since Justice Breyer argued that it was not clear whether Frederick’s speech was constitutionally protected, Morse was entitled to qualified immunity. This decision would demonstrate judicial restraint, i.e. not having a court decide a larger issue if deciding a smaller issue could dispose of the case.

    Under current Supreme Court precedent, issues of qualified immunity cannot be decided unless a Court first determines that a constitutional violation occurred. Justice Breyer took the position that this precedent should be overturned. Since the majority decided that no constitutional violation occurred, it did not address the issue of qualified immunity.

    Dissent

    Justice Stevens

    Justice John Paul Stevens took the position that the school’s interest in protecting students from speech that can be reasonably regarded as promoting drug use does not justify Frederick’s punishment for his attempt to make an ambiguous statement simply because it refers to drugs. Justice Stevens made several points in his dissent. First, he argued that prohibiting speech because it advocates illegal drug use, unless it is likely to provoke the harm sought to be avoided by the government, violates the First Amendment because it impermissibly discriminates based upon content. Second, even if the school had a compelling interest to prohibit such speech, Frederick’s banner was so vague that a reasonable person could not assume that it advocated illegal drug use. Finally, the dissent took issue with the majority’s justification that the speech could “reasonably be perceived as promoting drug use” because the constitutionality of speech should not depend on the perceptions of third parties.

    About UC Santa Barbara

    A learning and living environment like no other.

    Introduction

    Palm-framed vistas of the blue Pacific and the golden Santa Ynez Mountains. The scent of eucalyptus mixed with the saltwater breeze. Breathtaking natural beauty combined with enormous intellectual vitality. This is the University of California, Santa Barbara, and there is no other campus quite like it.

    Here on the edge of the Pacific, in a setting removed from urban pressures and distractions but vibrant with cultural and academic activity, many of the country’s most promising students join a community of scholars whose accomplishments are internationally recognized and whose skills as teachers are evident each day in classrooms and laboratories.

    In the humanities and the arts as well as in engineering and the sciences, UC Santa Barbara introduces students to novel ways of thinking, learning, and conducting research.

    Academic Quality

    Pioneering research is a critical component of the highest quality education. UCSB’s faculty includes six Nobel Prize winners and scores of elected members of national and international academies and societies as well as dozens of winners of Guggenheim and Fulbright Fellowships. The campus is one of only 62 research-intensive institutions elected to membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities.

    Within this community of scholars, the life of the mind, the pursuit of knowledge, and the experience of growth, both personal and intellectual, are the hallmarks of daily life. UCSB enrolls more than 23,000 students, almost 3,000 of them at the graduate level. Competition for admission is keen. In recent years the campus has enrolled the most academically competitive and ethnically diverse classes in its history.

    More than 200 majors, degrees, and credentials are offered through UCSB’s five schools and the Graduate Division. The College of Letters and Science alone offers 80 majors. The College of Creative Studies offers talented students an alternative approach for pursuing advanced, independent work in the arts, mathematics, or the sciences. The College of Engineering offers degree programs in seven disciplines.

    The university also has two professional schools: the Bren School of Environmental Science Management, and the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education.

    Scholarship and Service

    The preeminent scholarship, instruction, and public service that define UCSB have helped shape its identity as a place of enormous and exceptional possibility — a magnet for innovation.

    Originally a small, independent teachers’ college, Santa Barbara joined the renowned University of California system in 1944 and has since grown to be an integral and important part of public postsecondary education in the state.

    Recognition of UCSB’s academic quality takes many forms. One of the most prestigious is support from the National Science Foundation. The campus is now home to 12 national centers and institutes, eight of which are sponsored by the NSF, including the Materials Research Laboratory, the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, the Southern California Earthquake Center and the renowned Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics.

    The California NanoSystems Institute — one of the California Institutes for Science and Innovation — focuses on dramatic breakthroughs in materials, devices and resulting technologies, made possible by controlling form and function at the nanoscale. The institute is a research partnership with UCLA. New research buildings at both campuses house the institute.

    At the interdisciplinary Carsey-Wolf Center, students and scholars study everything from silent films to the latest in digital media and satellite communications, all in the context of a strong liberal arts and sciences curriculum.

    Credit Transfer from Another School

    Transcripts of work completed at other colleges may be submitted to the Director of Education for review. Transcripts should be submitted during the first term of a student’s program. Other documentation may also be required. Credits considered for transfer are evaluated by the Director of Education to determine if the course work is similar in nature, content, and level to that required at Bradford School. If the course work is comparable, transfer students may be given credit for courses completed at other approved colleges provided the grades received for the courses were “C” or better. Courses completed at other Bradford schools will be treated the same as courses taken at Bradford School.

There may be articulation agreements in place at the time the student enters that may not be in place when the student graduates or desires to attend a particular school.

Neither Bradford School nor any of its employees can represent that another institution will accept any courses for credit.

    Why Should I Go to Film School, should i go to film

    Why Should I Go to Film School?

    Should i go to film school

    At this day and age, it seems like you can learn ANYTHING online. Between Google searches, Youtube tutorials, and free online courses, pretty much any knowledge you could hope to gain is at your fingertips. So the question arises, why go to Film School? I mean, you don’t need a college degree to create. If you are good enough, you’ll get recognized. So why pay all of that money to get an education you already have access to?

    Well, there are a few things you might want to consider before writing college off as unnecessary.

    1. Professional Equipment, Software, and Facilities

    While you might be able to get your hands on some high-quality equipment or even make your own equipment, the chances are that you aren’t going to have access to everything you need. Sure, you can create great works with nothing more than a camera, but if you want to show your absolute best, you need to have access to the best equipment, facilities, and software out there. A film school can offer you sound stages, lighting kits, editing software, cinematography rigs, and pretty much anything else you could want, allowing you to practice like a professional and show the world what you can do.

    2. Human Resources

    Beyond equipment, software, and facilities, there is another resource film school can provide that you might not have considered. People. When you try to create on your own, you take on most of the responsibilities of the filming process. You are the director, editor, screenwriter, producer, special effects artist, audio engineer, etc. Unless you have some talented friends who are into film, you probably manage every part of the film besides the acting. And even when you only need actors, it can still be hard to find enough people to make your vision a reality.

    When you go to film school, you aren’t just gaining access to great equipment, you are gaining access to like-minded peers. You’re suddenly surrounded by aspiring actors, writers, directors, cinematographers, and editors. You have the ability to focus on the aspects of film that truly matter to you while letting other students take on the things that are important to them. The headache of gathering up enough people, and taking care of EVERYTHING is gone.

    3. Staff of Industry Professionals

    Whether you choose to admit it or not, Youtube is not as great a teacher as. well an actual teacher. And at CCH we don’t just hire amazing professors, we hire industry professionals. Our staff knows what it is like to be starting out in the film industry because they were once just starting out as well. With personal feedback from pros (many of whom still work professionally) who put time into getting to know and understand your talents, goals, and challenges, you will receive an education that is unique to you. And t hat is something the internet can’t give you.

    4. Detailed Path and Curriculum

    The courses that you take in college aren’t just thrown together in some arbitrary way. The curriculum is designed to put student success before anything else and at CCH we continuously update and improve our courses and degree paths to match the ever-changing industry.

    When pursuing a film career without the help of film school, you have to figure out what is important on your own. There is no guiding hand to help you along the way, just you deciding what you want to learn. This can be freeing in some ways, but there are certain things that are crucial to success. Without exposure to the industry through college, you are at risk of missing out on some of those “must know” things.

    5. Networking

    Networking is the key to success in any field, but it is especially important in the film world. If you don’t know anyone who is currently working on a project, if no one in the industry is aware of your skill level, or if no one is willing to give you your “big break,” it will be hard to gain any traction on your journey to becoming a professional.

    Film school gives you the chance to work with industry professionals who will be cheering for you, wishing you success, and who might be able to provide you with job opportunities. In addition to this, film school gives you the opportunity to work with many other aspiring professionals who might remember you when they are in need of someone with your specific talents. If you make yourself known around your college as a talented person who is great to work with, you are bound to have opportunities come to you in the future.

    Not Convinced

    Film school isn’t for everyone; college isn’t for everyone, but before saying no to it, consider the above. Will you have the drive and determination to create without help? Will you be able to learn everything you need to with only your computer as a resource? Will you be able to find work experience without connections? For you, the answer could be yes. There are many artists out their who have made a name for themselves without a college education, but make sure you know what path is right for you before making your choice.

    Speaking of the right path for you. have you decided which area of film you want to go into yet? At Columbia College Hollywood, we offer emphases in directing, producing, writing, acting, sound, new media, cinematography, and editing and visual effects. And we have just the tool for deciding which area you should study!

    How to Become a Game Designer #school #game #design

    How to become a game designer

    With the advent of arcade, home console, computer, and now mobile and tablet games, game design has become an elaborate process. Specialists trained in a variety of disciplines collaborate to create great computer or video games replete with state-of-the-art animation and visual effects. These individuals need not be in the same room, city or even the same state. Not only are many game designers (about 57 percent) self-employed, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a significant portion work from home, regardless of their employment.

    Historically, game design has primarily been male-dominated, but in the past 25 years, more women have been entering the field. From 1989 through 2009, women went from being 3 percent to 11 percent of the game design workforce, and since 2009, the number of women hired by gaming companies has tripled.

    What are the educational requirements?

    If you are interested in pursuing a career in game design, go to college the minimum requirement for employment is typically a bachelor’s degree, the BLS reports. Some schools have dedicated degree programs in game design, but if you can’t find one that suits you, remember it isn’t the only educational option. You can earn this degree in computer graphics, art, animation or a related field.

    While it may be helpful to possess artistic ability and talent, people lacking in those areas can often compensate with robust technical and computer skills, and those abilities might be preferred by some employers. Likewise, those who do not have strong computer skills may make up for it through demonstrable artistic talent.

    Some skills that game designers may need include:

    • Computer programming and knowledge of programming languages
    • Coding
    • Problem solving and critical thinking
    • Knowledge of audio and video equipment
    • Written and verbal communication

    If you’re interested in pursuing a degree in game design or computer programming, consider one of these sponsored schools:

    How much do game designers make?

    While the BLS does not have individual information on the salary of game designers it does provide information on multimedia artists and animators, which includes the role of game designer. According to the BLS, the mean annual wage for these artists and animators in the U.S. was $72,400 as of May 2013. At the same time, the top five states for annual mean wages were:

    • California: $88,150
    • Washington: $76,900
    • Washington D.C. $76,110
    • New York: $72,530
    • New Mexico: $70,310

    If you’ve been called a gamer for as long as you remember, you might as well make a career out of it, right? To learn more about how to become a game designer and for a complete list of sources, check out the visual that follows.

    3 Skills All Communications Majors Must Have #graduate #school #for #communication #majors

    3 Skills All Communications Majors Must Have

    As a budding communications major, you may be wondering what to do after college. The good news is that your degree has prepared you for success in many careers.

    Communications majors are often highly attuned to current events and the world of media, they have strong public speaking and presentation skills and they know how to write well and craft convincing arguments. These “soft skills” will make you valuable to many employers, as will the “hard skills” you may have picked up over your four years in college, like web design, Photoshop or statistical research.

    Here s a primer for how to describe your skills and turn them into quantifiable experiences for your r sum . We also have some advice on how to bolster your degree before graduation with some practical experience beyond the classroom:

    You are a media and marketing expert.

    You’ve learned to think critically about different forms of media and are keenly aware of underlying messages. You also know how to reach different audiences with your information or product. Given the importance of media and marketing in many industries, your expertise in these areas will definitely help you land a job.

    How to develop this skill outside the classroom:

    • Seek an internship at a local network television station, or check out the opportunities at your college radio station or newspaper.
    • Query campus offices such as Resident Life, the Student Learning Center or the Career Center, which often hire students to help lead marketing initiatives on campus.
    • Land a position as a campus representative for a media company like Apple or Vault. You’ll get an inside look at the methods companies use to reach young people.

    You are a practiced and persuasive public speaker.

    Communications majors understand that research and enthusiasm can mean the difference between facing an engaged audience and staring at a room full of thumb twiddlers. Whether you have to pitch a concept to your boss, lead a conference call or simply interact with a customer, strong public speaking and presentation skills will be integral to your success after college.

    How to develop this skill outside of the classroom:

    • Join your college’s speech and debate team to gain experience crafting and delivering a compelling argument.
    • Lend your voice to a student organization. Campus clubs are always looking for members to reach out to other students and organize social or community service events.
    • Become a peer tutor. Tutoring or instruction of any kind, not surprisingly, is one of the best ways to develop your communications skills.

    You have strong quantitative and qualitative research skills.

    Without research data, a marketing team can’t identify its target audience, lawmakers can’t create effective public policy and reporters would have to rely on hearsay. Your understanding of research methods will be a valuable asset for employers, whether you choose to pursue a career in academia, media, politics or marketing and public relations.

    How to develop this skill outside of the classroom:

    • Snag an undergraduate assistantship with a faculty member whose interests align with your own. Many schools offer credit for academic research.
    • Seek a summer job with a consulting firm. These firms are interested in any brainy student who understands how to crunch numbers and translate their findings into layperson’s terms.
    • Investigate think tanks and research institutions that might offer internships for undergraduates who want to help collect data on important public policy issues, from drug abuse rates in the United States to the effectiveness of humanitarian aid programs abroad.

    That communications degree was a smart choice whatever field you chose to pursue, you’ve developed skills that will help you excel. Understand how to sell those skills to a potential employer, and you’ll be able to successfully transition from undergrad to working professional.

    If you re a high school student with communications aspirations, find a college with a strong program and plenty of opportunities to skillbuild in and beyond the classroom.

    Online Master’s Degree in School Guidance Counseling

    While accredited online programs aren’t common, you can find some school guidance counseling master’s degree programs offered via the Web. Classes in psychology and counseling methods plus clinical experiences can prepare you for a career as a school and vocational counselor. Schools offering Counseling degrees can also be found in these popular choices.

    Can I Earn My School Guidance Counseling Master’s Degree Online?

    There aren’t many online master’s degree programs in school guidance counseling, but the Council for Accreditation of Counseling Related Educational Programs does accredit some programs, most of which are offered by for-profit schools. In these online guidance counseling master’s degree programs, you are often required to attend on-campus sessions periodically, and you usually still need to participate in internships and clinical experiences. This helps give you the clinical face-to-face experience necessary to work with school children.

    Many universities around the U.S. offer campus-based school guidance counseling master’s degree programs. When you enroll in an on-campus guidance counseling master’s degree program, you’ll take lecture-based courses and spend time in clinical settings.

    What Will My Coursework Cover?

    The courses you take in a school guidance counseling master’s degree program give you the background you need to help students handle academic, personal, social and family issues. You take courses in psychology, group counseling, alcohol and drug dependency, family structure and crisis intervention. Additionally, you learn about counseling children and teenagers. Counseling methods and guidance principles are also discussed.

    Most school guidance counseling master’s degree programs include extensive real-world clinical practice, even if you find an online program. Some of these experiences could include role playing with classmates, projects and supervised clinical work. Additionally, you often need to undertake a research project and prepare a thesis to complete your master’s degree program.

    What Kind of Career Will I Have?

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), jobs for school and vocational counselors are predicted to increase about 8% between 2014 and 2024 (www.bls.gov ). School guidance counselors are increasingly being called on to work with students who have troubles at home or issues with drugs and alcohol, says the BLS. The middle 50% of school guidance counselors earned between $40,900 and $69,250 in May 2014.

    State licensure or certification requirements for school guidance counselors vary by state, but you will need credentials in most cases. Some states also require you to have a teaching license, according to the BLS. If you’d like to advance, you can teach other counselors or move into school administration, both of which require a higher degree.

    Queens Gateway To Health Sciences Secondary School Public School | 7th Grade – 12th Grade | 623 students

    TrueSchools Ratings

    School ratings are based on state standardized test scores and comparing those results to other schools in the same state. TrueSchools ratings range from 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest school rating and 1 being the lowest. Ratings are meant to give an overview of a school’s performance in the most recent state standardized tests TrueSchools has records for.

    Each school’s rating is determined by comparing it’s test scores to those of other schools in the same state. Composite scores are determined by combining a school’s results for each test and grade and weighting scores by the number of students taking each test. Tests taken by fewer than 10 students are not calculated in the composite score.

    Private Schools & Schools Without Ratings

    Private schools do not have ratings because private schools are not obligated to report their test scores to the public. Some public schools may not have ratings because either the school did not report its results, the results were incomplete or there was not enough data available to calculate an accurate rating.

    Other Criteria to Consider

    Keep in mind ratings are solely based on a school’s performance on its state’s standardized tests. Ratings do not take into account other important factors you should consider when evaluating a school. Such factors include class sizes and student-teacher ratios, the quality of teachers and amount of personal attention given to each student, school programs and extracurricular activities provided, amount of funding a school receives and how much is spent per student and other available resources. These are among a few of the qualities to consider when choosing a school to send your child to.
