Course Description

This medical terminology course for medical coders covers the medical terminology used by professional medical coders in today's healthcare industry.

We'll then move on to each body system where we'll work on recognizing and defining their related medical terms. This comprehensive review of medical terminology will not only benefit those new to medical terms used in medical coding, but also act as a refresher for those already experienced in medical coding.
