According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in the healthcare professions is projected to grow 14 percent through 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations. Towson University Continuing and Professional Studies can help you meet that demand with courses in medical coding and electronic health records.

Medical coding is one of the fastest growing specialties in the healthcare industry. Certified medical coders require vast knowledge of medical terminology, the insurance industry, anatomy, and information technology to code patient history, diagnoses, and treatments that's used by health care providers and insurance companies.

You can advance your career by registering for either our Certified Medical Coding course or our Medical Billing course. Upon successful completion of either course, you will be prepared to sit for the AAPC Certified Professional Coder (CPC®) exam to become a certified professional coder or the Certified Professional Biller (CPB®) exam to become a certified professional biller.

Whether you already work in the medical field or you're transitioning from another career, becoming a certified electronic health records specialist can open up new job opportunities for you, give you higher earning power, and make you an in-demand professional in a wide variety of healthcare settings. Our Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist course, Certified Clinical Medical Assistant course or our Pharmacy Technician course will provide everything you need to help make it happen.
