Meet Our Medical Coding Certificate Faculty

:

The faculty members of Peirce College's Medical Coding Certificate program equips students with the skills necessary to review patients’ medical records and assign numeric codes for each diagnosis and procedure. Medical coders's accuracy directly impacts billing and the revenue cycle as well as outcomes and reporting activities. When teaching the coursework, our faculty relies on Health Information Management principles for the basis of our Medical Coding Certificate program.

Students will learn about medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, ICD-10 coding, CPT coding, health information and delivery systems, healthcare reimbursement methods and healthcare, legal and compliance issues. The faculty requires students in the Medical Coding Certificate program to complete a Professional Practice Experience (PPE) in which you complete a minimum of 40 hours of authentic coding using a logic-based encoder.
