START YOUR TRAINING FOR A CAREER IN THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY!

What to Expect as a Student

As an IBMC College student, your practical experience and individual attention begins on day one and doesn’t end until graduation. Your training will include CPT and ICD coding, where you will learn to translate healthcare reports into universally recognized short codes for diagnoses and procedures, and provide proper reimbursement for health services. Because your training will incorporate both lectures and hands-on experience in a lab setting, each day will be filled with rewarding and challenging on-the-job experiences. You will learn from experienced instructors, who are professionals in their field.

We’re focused on career training — not just general education — so you’ll learn practical skills that you can apply to your career immediately.

At the end of the program, you’ll have the opportunity to take the Certified Medical Billing Specialist (CMBS) exam for certification. While not required, this certification will give you a competitive edge in the job market. You will also be able to join the Medical Association of Billers (MAB).
