Introduction to Medical Coding

Medical coding classes in this course aims to equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to accurately code medical information in a standardized manner. This proficiency is crucial for maintaining consistency in adverse event reporting, supporting regulatory compliance, and facilitating communication within the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.

Course Description

Medical coding is the transformation of healthcare diagnosis, procedures, medical services and equipment into universal medical alphanumeric codes

What you will learn in this course

Medical coding training in this program will help the life science and health science graduates to learn the Coding Principles, explore the hierarchical structure of MedDRA terms, understand how terms are organized into System Organ Classes (SOCs), High-Level Terms (HLTs), and Preferred Terms (PTs), and learn the principles and guidelines for coding adverse events, medical history, and concomitant medications.

Structure of Course Delivery

The entire course of medical coding classes are available online. It consists of several in-depth lectures delivered by a subject matter expert, appropriately supported by slides, images, and interactive materials where necessary. The delivery has a tremendous degree of versatility. A class may be paused to allow you to take notes and refer to your textbooks (not provided). If you already know a certain part of the lecture, you can rewind it to hear it again or skip a slide or two. You are free to go back over a section at a later time if you need to review it before your assessment. Online medical coding courses with certificates promotes in whatever order you choose, even though our curriculum may prescribe otherwise.


Many of our students felt that the way this medical coding course is taught has made it easier for them to keep up with the intense lectures in real class - it's like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher.

Visuals in the presentations aid in better comprehension by making topics easier to learn and more difficult to forget!
