The Inpatient Medical Coding Certificate program is designed to prepare Health Information Professionals by focusing on procedural and diagnostic coding for reimbursement of professional services performed in inpatient facility settings. The program includes medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, inpatient procedural coding (ICD-10-PCS) and diagnostic coding (ICD-10-CM) as well as medical regulations. Upon successful completion of the Inpatient Medical Coding Certificate program, the student is eligible to take the certification examinations administered by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) or the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC). In order to complete the AMCO program students who have successfully completed the MRCO program need only take HIM 225 and HIM 250. The AMCO program is presented 100% online and is supported with a wide variety of methods and opportunities for direct contact with the program manager and instructors.

Inpatient Medical Coding is a completely ONLINE certificate program.
