Medical Billing and Coding Program

Prepare for a rewarding healthcare career with a Medical Billing and Coding certificate

The healthcare industry is reliant on so much more than direct patient care — there are many skilled professionals that operate behind-the-scenes to make sure providers and facilities operate smoothly, and patients feel seen. When you earn your Medical Billing and Coding certificate from Goodwin University, you will gain the skills to transform medical information into codes, which allows healthcare providers to get reimbursement from healthcare insurance companies.

Explore the analytical side of healthcare

A Medical Billing and Coding certificate is perfect for those who are interested in making a positive difference in the healthcare field, but don’t necessarily want clinical patient experience. The expenses associated with healthcare can be a source of anxiety for patients, and as a Certified Professional Coder (CPC), you’ll be empowered to make the process less stressful for all involved. You’ll act as an important connection between patients, healthcare providers, and insurance companies to make the payment process more manageable and efficient. As technology and medicine continue to evolve, you’ll develop the fundamental coding skills necessary to adapt as you move forward in your career.

Don’t wait to start a career you love

At Goodwin University, you can earn your Medical Billing and Coding certificate and start working in the field in as few as 12‑18 months. When you graduate from our school, you’ll need to sit for the Certified Professional Coder (CPC) exam — once you successfully pass the exam, you can start working in the field and doing what you love.
