Medical billing and coding is a role within the Medical Records and Health Information field. The move to electronic health records systems and an aging population is impacting this field. According to the BLS*, the role of a medical records and health information technician is to organize and manage health information data by ensuring it maintains its quality, accuracy, accessibility and security in both paper files and electronic systems. 

*BLS projections are not specific to University of Phoenix students or graduates.

Our Medical Billing & Coding Fundamentals professional development course is self-paced, consists of 45-60 hours of content, and you have 12 months to complete it.

The BLS* projects an 8% growth between 2019 and 2029 for Medical Records and Health Information Technicians.

Typically, the Medical Records and Health Information Technicians role requires a post-secondary certificate such as our Medical Records Certificate program. This program also prepares you to sit for the Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS) exam, a national industry certification offered through the National Healthcare Association.

While completion of a college course or professional development course might help fill a skills gap, it may not lead to employment in this role.

*BLS projections are not specific to University of Phoenix students or graduates.

College credits will not be awarded for completing our professional development courses. So it cannot count toward a degree program.

If you complete one of our college courses, you can request a transcript for it from University of Phoenix.

If you choose to take a noncredit professional development course, you will get a certificate of completion once you have completed all assessments with a score of 85% or better. You can share this certificate on your resumé and LinkedIn® profile.

Our college credit certificate program is a focused collection of 8 courses that provides a comprehensive look at a specific field of study instead of just focusing on one course or subject. It also prepares you to sit for the Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS) exam, a national industry certification offered through the National Healthcare Association. To give you a kickstart on a degree — and to help you save time and money — all credits from this certificate program can also be transferred into our Bachelor of Science in Health Administration (BSHA) degree program.

Noncredit professional development courses are a great way to explore a new field, gain a new skill or fine-tune your career. These courses are self-paced and you will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course that you can share on your resumé or LinkedIn® profile.
