Program Overview

Coders must have a thorough knowledge of anatomy and medical terminology. Using code books, the medical coder assigns correct codes to record the service levels for the procedures performed and to account for supplies used to treat the patient during an encounter with the physician. Proper assignment of ICD-10-CM codes corresponds with the physician’s diagnoses and completes the “story” of the patient’s illness or injury.

This curriculum is certified through the American Academy of Professional Coders and upon completion, the students may take the certification test to become a Certified Professional Coder (CPC). For more information on AAPC, click here.
