The Medical Coding Certificate is designed for people interested in the medical coding as well as students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in another field of study who may wish to enhance their primary degree program.
Upon completion of the Medical Coding Certificate, students are prepared to find employment in a hospital or physician’s office. They will be eligible to sit for the Certified Coding Associate (CCA) exam offered by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
College credit earned for the medical coding certificate can be applied toward the Health Information Administration bachelor’s degree.
