Institutional Certificate in Healthcare Coding and Classification

Our 27-credit-hour certificate program consists of 10 courses to develop your ability to use the International Classification of Diseases, version 10 (ICD-10-CM) and the Common Procedural Terminology (CPT). The program also develops expertise for both outpatient/office practice and acute-care inpatient levels of proficiency. You can use and apply both coding schemes in the systems of reimbursement for health care services.
