Thread: Circc cert

    Default Circc cert

    AAPC: Back to School

    Why is it so hard to find a job for a CIRCC certified. employers are always looking into if your a CPC or CCS or RHIT. It's so ridiculous that they dont accept these Certification only. Its frustrating! do anyone know where I can apply with only having these cert?

    I have always thought a CIRCC would be in very high demand because of the difficulity of your specialty! I'm very surprised to hear this!

    I hate to ask the obvious but have you contacted or looked into radiology departments in hospitals, in free standing radiology practices and in neurology and neurosurgery practices? I would think those areas would want ONLY your certification.

    Have you checked for positions listed on the ACR website???

    I have always admired all with the CIRCC credential because it can be such a difficult specialty.

    Best of luck to you!

    Unfortunately, that's not true. I also thought that having a CIRCC cert. would be in demand but most of the places I applied into was looking for a CPC certification so now I dont know if its worth it to really have a specialty certification. I would look into your suggestion and see what I would get. Thanks so much for the help.
