The Medical Coding/Transcriptionist program offers the opportunity for students to gain knowledge that may lead to either a position in medical coding or medical transcription. In some doctors’ offices, medical coders may also be working as medical assistants. While this curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge necessary to allow them to perform the basic procedures for medical coding as well as medical transcription, they are also required to take courses that will assist them with becoming well-rounded employees.


The goals of this program are to:

    prepare students for entry-level employment opportunities in the field of medical coding (ICD-9 and CPT codes); and

    prepare students for entry-level employment opportunities in the field of medical transcription.


Successful graduates from this program will be able to:

    exhibit basic mastery of diagnostic and procedural codes which include ICD-9-CM, CPT and HCPCS codes; and

    exhibit basic mastery of transcription skills incorporating medical terminology and the appropriate formatting for various medical reports.
