This specific course provides an introduction to the medical coding industry and explores topics such as medical terminology, anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, medical records, medical ethics, ICD-10 coding, and more! Topics covered in this course provide foundational knowledge used in the everyday job duties of medical coding professionals.
