Project Xtern - Xterns

Project Xtern is an ideal way to get your first taste of real-world knowledge and experience in the medical coding field and gives potential employers an opportunity to see you in action. It builds confidence and improves your research and analytical skills.

The program provides our members with valuable work experience that can be applied to resumes and toward the removal of your "apprentice" status. The experience also aids members with finding employment.
