American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC)

Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, AAPC was founded in 1988 to provide education and professional certification to physician-based medical coders and to elevate the standards of medical coding by providing training, certification, ongoing education and networking opportunities.



AAPC’s core Certified Professional Coder® credential is recognized as the industry standard and is highly valued among physicians. Additional certifications encompass the hospital outpatient facility (CPC-H®) and payer perspective coding (CPC-P®), as well as 19 specialty-specific credentials. AAPC also offers a Certified Professional Medical Auditor™ credential. AAPC-trained CPMAs are in high demand as government and payer audits increase in scope and medical practices find themselves under increased pressure to maintain profitability.
