MEDR 1323 - Coding Professional Practice Experience
A supervised professional practical experience in the health information management department of a hospital with adequate facilities to provide varied work opportunities in ICD-9-CM, CPT and HCPCS level II coding. Students will work under the supervision of a qualified RHIA, RHIT, or other qualified personnel to whom they are assigned. Students will also receive college faculty consultation. The professional practice experience is designed to enable students to obtain actual work experience in theoretical and application-based procedures previously studied. This professional practice consists of 120 hours, which can be completed on a full-time basis (40 hours/week for three weeks) or on a part-time basis over an extended period of time (e.g., eight hours/week for 15 weeks).
