Uma Vijayan CPC-A

Why did you want to be a medical coder?

I worked in the IT (Information Technology) field for 11+ years. And then, owing to my own personal experiences involving a loved one and their health condition, I started spending a lot of time around doctors and hospitals. While on this journey, I was exposed to so many interesting details about the functioning of the human body. I started reading up on human anatomy and physiology. I was so interested in this field, that I decided to switch careers and embark on this new path.
