An in depth class taking a novice student and building the fundamentals of medical
coding.  A history overview of coding in addition to coding concepts and coding principles
will be brought to life.  Real life examples will be used to practice and develop the skills a
coder must possess.  While the majority of class is spent lecturing, a portion of the class
will be dedicated to practice coding and the application of coding guidelines. Medical

coding manuals.
