C Alston certificate

Congratulations to Carla Alston (Vice-Chair of Veterans Group) in completing the 2017 Medical Coding and Abstracting Program (MCAP) here in Sacramento.

She was celebrated for her accomplishment on January 4, 2018, with a breakfast and formal graduation ceremony with 18 other graduates.

Great job and congratulations!


About MCAP:

This fast paced program combines both the Language of Medicine (LOM) and Step-by-Step (SBS) Medical Coding in a blending learning format of classroom, online, and distance learning.

Since a basic overview of medical terminology is important to many career fields within the healthcare industry and is essential to the medical abstractor, this program will explore the basic elements of medical terminology; prefixes, roots, and suffixes which form many medical terms.
