Medical Billing and Coding Student Attend AAPC Meeting

Dec 30, 2013

Students of instructor Judy McDonogh’s medical billing and coding class at the Louisville Campus recently attended a meeting of the American Association of Professional Coders (AAPC).  Judy explained that she takes students to the meetings so they can establish a habit of participating in the professional organization. 

Attending AAPC meetings is one way that certified coders can earn the continuing education units (CEUs) which are required to retain their certification. Although students are not yet certified, and not eligible to earn CEUs, they are welcome to attend the AAPC meetings which focus on topics of interest to coders.  The meetings also offer a great opportunity for students to network with professionals in the field. 

Kate Gavrilova, a 2007 graduate of the billing and coding program who is taking refresher classes, attended the meeting and remarked that even after years in the United States she is still learning about the culture. “It was very good to hear things that were said about communication,” said Kate.  Another student, Julaun Lewis, noted that examples of bad communication were also discussed.  In addition, the students learned the importance of professionalism at all times.
