Certified Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery Coder (CCVTC) Preparation Training Course

Cardiovascular disease is on the rise, as are minimally invasive techniques that allow cardiovascular surgeons to treat high-risk patient populations. Together, these two events are elevating the demand for medical coders specialized in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery reporting.

Cardiovascular surgeons value CCVTC certification and tend to pay coders with their CCVTC 11% more than they pay non-specialized coders.
