Additional Information: 

Having recently completed studies in Comprehensive medical terminology and introductory clinical coding, I am looking to advance a career in clinical coding.

To compliment these formal qualifications I have extensive practical experience gained through my current role working in the hospital episodes department at GMHBA Health insurance.

I believe I have a thorough understanding of coding procedures and I will be furthering my own skills and development through continuing my education in HIMAA’s Intermediate coding course- Undertake complex clinical coding due to commence on September 5th 2016. Currently residing in Regional Victoria, I am willing to relocate should an opportunity arise to pursue a career in clinical coding.
