Medical Billing & Coding Careers

If you're fascinated by the health care industry, but not interested in direct patient care, learn the necessary skills to enter or advance in the world of hospitals, clinics, or physician's offices through employment in medical records departments or business offices. People who can meet the extensive administrative needs of health care institutions are in demand.

UNM Continuing Education provides a variety of options in career-focused training, either in-person or online.


In-person: Administrative Medical Coding and Billing Certificate

The certificate in coding coursework includes the basic, intermediate, and advanced levels necessary to compete in health care information technology occupations. Course 38104, Medical Terminology and Human Anatomy, is the first course you will take for this certificate. However, students who have successfully completed a medical terminology and human anatomy class at another educational institution may contact the program supervisor to validate completion and to arrange to test out of the class. Medical coding and billing training prepares you for the national CPC exam to become a certified professional coder.
