Employment of medical records specialists is projected to grow 7 percent from 2021 to 2031.*
An increasing share of the population is entering older age groups, which typically require more medical services. As a result, more medical records specialists will be needed to convert related health information into standardized codes to be used for insurance reimbursement and other purposes.
Additional records, coupled with widespread use of electronic health records (EHRs) by healthcare providers, will support demand for specialists to code and maintain the associated information in all areas of the healthcare industry.*
Each student receives a Chromebook for use throughout the program. Graduates who successfully enter verified training-related employment within 90 days, are eligible to keep the Chromebook. The Tool Bonus Policy is outlined in the Student Orientation Booklet. Please see an Admissions Representative for complete details on this tool policy.

"Starting school at 40 was the scariest, most exciting decision I have ever made! I had a great experience at MTTI. Everyone I dealt with at the school is has been so encouraging; they make you feel you want to be there. I'm such a cheeleader for trade schools! They provide such good opportunities for people who don't want to invest four years of their life in getting a college degree that may not even lead to a career. I definitely recommend MTTI to anyone."—Kelley Schwartz, 2020 Graduate
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Admin at Priority Management Group (PMG)
"It's a journey you can take pride in. Before starting school at MTTI I researched and read all of the online reviews. The school has a good reputation. I’m very satisfied with my outcome. Provided I keep up my AAPC Membership and Continuing Education Credits, I can take my Certification to any state. Attending the Medical & Billing/Office program was a good investment. I am proud of what I have accomplished!"—Stacy Perry, 2017 Graduate
