I've been taking the American Assoc. of Professional ( Coders' CPC-H certification course in medical coding for facilites. To be perfectly honest, I did this on a whim (I spent all of two days researching "start-from-scratch" career paths, thinking that was the only way to go for someone in my position). I liked the idea of a decent salary after taking a six-month long course and doing a year or so of internships. It seemed to be my key to validation as a productive adult. I'm a quarter of the way into the course, though, and I feel like I'm in way, way over my head. I paid over $2000 for the course and related materials/exams. What do I do now? [more inside]

How do I organise my college course modules into one cohesive format? [more inside]
PhysioFilter: Where can I find information about really loose ligaments with a tendency to subfluxation? [more inside]
Anyone have medical/anatomical knowledge to support the observation that the pelvic girdle/hips grow wider as a person ages? I don't mean getting fat - I mean literally do the bones spread outwards, increasing the hip size and so the width between the legs. I see this on old men especially
I'm interested in learning about anatomy. Trouble is, most medical textbooks are horribly boring, so I'm looking for something easier, maybe interactive. My memory of biology is, well, non-existent, so I'm looking for basic/beginner's stuff. I didn't find what I was looking for by Googling. Any bio/med students out there w/suggestions?
