Demand for medical coders will grow 13% by 2026, so there's no better time to advance your career. This online medical coding course will train you to become a Certified Inpatient Coder.
The AAPC Certified Inpatient Coder (CIC™) credential proves that you are an expert in inpatient medical records review. Earning CIC™ certification requires previous work experience, so most professionals prepare for the exam while working full-time.
