In our fully online, 21-credit Medical Coding Certificate Program, students learn to classify medical data from inpatient, outpatient, and physician office records. The ability to effectively and efficiently code data is critical to medical research, medical and health education, and planning and monitoring public health.
A high need for qualified coders can mean flexible job hours, sign-on bonuses, and the potential to work from home. In addition, consulting and travel opportunities are abundant.
Students will study disease pathology and the format and content of health records. Graduates gain an in-depth knowledge of the ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS, and CPT coding systems as well as reimbursement systems used in the United States.
Students who complete the coding certificate courses can continue on and achieve a Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management. All courses in the certificate program count toward the BS HIM degree.
