These trainings are designed to meet the education needs of physicians, coders, clinical documentation improvement specialists, data quality analysts, pharmacists, nurses, social workers, dentists, psychologists, medical administrators, and other health care professionals who support U.S active duty service members, reservists, National Guardsmen, military veterans, and their families.
