The Online Medical Coding Certificate and Online Clinical Documentation Improvement Certificate are currently accepting applications.
"My decision to attend Labouré College was an easy one. Once I researched HIM programs on the AHIMA website and saw Labouré was listed, I applied. The Labouré name is so well known in the Boston healthcare world that I didn't even think about it twice! I was hired as the HIM director's administrative assistant as a student at Labouré and still hold that position. I obtained my RHIT credential and plan on taking the CCS exam early next year."
