Land a job in the healthcare industry with our new Certificate in Medical Coding program

The number of healthcare positions continues to expand rapidly in the U.S. to accommodate a growing aging population and changing government regulations. Many employers are looking to hire credentialed professionals, so today we’re introducing our new Certificate in Medical Coding (CMC) program to help train you in the non-clinical, coding work that's essential for the success of today's healthcare providers.

Our new Certificate in Medical Coding program is for students who desire a career in the healthcare industry, but don’t want to work directly with patients. It will help current and prospective medical professionals prepare for careers such as medical coders in hospitals, physical and behavioral health rehabilitation centers, doctors' offices, insurance companies, and more. The curriculum was designed using American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Professional Certificate Approval Program Manual criteria, qualifying graduates for the AHIMA Certified Coding Specialist certification exam.

Employment in the healthcare and social assistance sector is projected to generate the largest number of jobs among all sectors -- 5.6 million -- by 2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, so there are many opportunities in this field for credentialed professionals. And Peirce is helping to fill those positions by teaching the skills that employers are looking for.

If you’re looking to expand your skill set and boost your career in the healthcare industry, this certificate program might be right for you. Learn more about it by visiting our website, or reading the press release we issued today with all the details.
