Free session to share information about career in medical coding

OSWEGO — The SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center will host a free information session from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. March 6, for people who are interested in learning more about a professional career in medical billing and coding.

The SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center offers ICD10 medical coding through an interactive online training program in partnership with CodeSmart University. The course is open to each student for 18 months from the date they enroll, and the program is self-paced so students can go as fast or slow as they would like. A unique “office hours” feature allows students to personally connect with content experts as needed.

The U.S. Department of Labor has projected that medical coding and billing jobs will grow at a greater than average rate. In New York, the current average salary of a medical coder is just under $40,000 per year.

To register for the free information session, call the SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center at 315-934-4900 by March 4.

The SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center is at 70 County Route 59 in Oswego County’s Industrial Park, just off Exit 14 from Route 481. To learn more about the SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center visit
