Medical Coding

Online Medical Coding Training and Certifications

Medical coding is a rapidly growing profession according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Coders are in high demand and opportunities are abundant within physician offices, medical groups, clinics, hospitals, and other healthcare organizations.

However, most employers today hire only certified medical coders. In fact, certification has become an implicit industry standard, and certified coders earn much more than those without an official credential. Obtaining your certification can make a substancial difference in a physician practice and in your personal income.

“I have been an RMC since 2004. The staff is wonderful. They send reminders for upcoming renewal exams, anwer any questions, and put your mind at ease with informative links and everything you need to succeed.”
