Students will take part in a practicum to showcase their skills on live charts under the direction of OS2 Healthcare Solutions management and audit staff.

Earn

After a 4-day bootcamp, students will test for CRC certification from AAPC

Intern

Phase 2: Outpatient Coding

Beginning immediately after peak season, the outpatient coding is an 8-month onsite course that is designed to prepare risk adjustment coders for procedural coding in a hospital and physician setting. This course will also give an opportunity for students to earn CPC and COC certifications.
