Medical Record Coding Technician
Medical record coding technicians, or coders, use alphanumeric diagnosis and procedure codes to communicate critical information about medical conditions and treatments. Coders translate medical terminology into a standardized format, allowing information to be transmitted accurately between healthcare providers and insurance payers. They must rely on medical terminology, human anatomy, health conditions, and medications to assign the proper medical codes for each patient encounter.

Horry-Georgetown Technical College
ROI was very important to me. HGTC has provided me with a 2.5-year college degree for a very minimal investment. Job prospects in my industry are great, which puts me in a position to repay student loans quickly so I’m not still digging out from debt a decade down the road. I will be in a much better financial position without all the debt I would have incurred had I opted to go back to a four-year college.
