This program is designed to prepare students with the necessary skills and competencies for this rapidly evolving profession. The focus of the coursework is based upon three primary learning tracks: management, data, and classification systems and reimbursement. These elements develop throughout the program so that students may obtain the advanced knowledge needed to become successful.
Students learn theory and practice through various course projects and interprofessional activities. Concepts are applied outside of the classroom through professional practice and internship experiences incorporated throughout the program.
NOTE: Online and degree progression students will work with an advisor to identify the required courses and program track based upon previous education and relevant work experience.
Total program credit hours: 60
