Combining academic credit with professional experience, this Professional Practice Experience (PPE) is a supervised internship in a medical coding and billing department (typically overseen by the Health Information Management manager) of an acute and/or non-acute healthcare facility or medical billing and coding company. The PPE is designed to provide the student 80-hours of practical experiences in the theories and concepts previously acquired in the curriculum. This experience may be gained virtually through the use of V-lab.

Prereq: Successful completion of all other coursework in the medical coding and billing curriculum and written permission from the HIT program coordinator.
