Ruben Banuelos Jr., Medical Billing and Coding program, HDMC Temecula
Ruben enrolled in the Medical Billing and Coding program at HDMC Temecula almost by accident. According to Ruben, he was taking his mother to a doctor’s appointment one day, when he saw the signs for High Desert Medical College. Ruben thought his mother might be interested in enrolling, so they went in to speak with the Admissions staff. By the end of their conversation, Ruben had decided to enroll himself! Ruben says, “At first I wasn’t looking to join at all, but thinking about it I said why not, and here I am close to the end of the classes.” Ruben knows he made the right decision, because his goal is to meet new people, and land a better job.
Ruben was nominated for the Student Spotlight by his Temecula instructor Patricia Rico for the dedication and work ethic he has demonstrated in the program. Rico said, “He has never missed a day, perfect attendance. Ruben is always engaging with myself and his classmates during lecture will ask questions for further clarity. His work is turned in and he ensures to get his points for all assignments. Ruben demonstrates drive and that will get him far in his chosen career.”
