I'm sure there are a few legit schools, but it's mostly a pipe dream. Dr's want to hire someone who has been to a certified school and has 'in office' experience.

Yes, there are legit companies that let you train at home to be a medical coder and transcriptionist and others. as far as medical coder working from home, not likely unless you are already working with a company that is trying to cut down costs.
For a reputable school(I also am a a student here) click here.
This school is a partner with the department of defense and labor to train military families especially for portable careers(such as medical transcription that can be done from home).
