CAPSTONE SIMULATION FOR CODING will help you bridge the gap between classroom and work experience. It provides a 'virtual externship' that allows you to take what you have learned in the classroom and applies it with on-the-job scenarios typically performed by a medical coding and billing specialist. CAPSTONE SIMULATION FOR CODING simulates 80-hours of real world activities in two different scenarios. Spend one week in a medical practice performing administrative billing tasks; the second week, coding for a multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center as an employee of a remote coding company.
