Start Your Career in Medical Billing and Coding
The Medical Billing and Coding (MBC) program at United Career Institute is ideal for those who want to take advantage of the benefits of a healthcare career, but who prefer front office duties rather than direct patient care. Patient care providers rely heavily on their medical office team to ensure that their medical facilities operate smoothly, and their insurance claims are managed properly.
Does working in a doctor’s office sound like your dream career path? The growing medical field in the communities of Pittsburgh, Irwin, Greensburg, Monroeville, and Murrysville, has created many employment opportunities for medical billers and coders. United is enrolling students for medical office training courses now, so if you’re in the Greater Pittsburgh area, you can begin your career in months!
