The online Certificate in Medical Coding readies students to perform essential, behind-the-scenes work supporting patient care, specifically by teaching them the ICD-10 coding system. Graduates are prepared to use the system’s thousands of codes for diseases, abnormal findings, complaints, social circumstances, and more. They are also familiar with medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, health information, and delivery systems, and are eligible to sit for the Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) Exam.
