In this era of financial uncertainty, economic instability, and downsizing in industry after industry, it’s pretty uncommon to find a professional field that is actually growing, rather than diminishing. And of course, while it seems a bit like tempting fate to refer to any occupation as “recession-proof,” we know that there are certain industries that will always be in high demand, no matter the state of the economic climate in general.

One of those industries, of course, is the medical field; people will always need doctors, and doctors will always need a support staff. That’s why the field of medical billing and coding has, generally speaking, not suffered much even in a slow economy. Coding, for example, is such an integral part of the way our medical system operates that it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which it will cease to be a promising job market.
You could look, for instance, to the State of Arizona. It is projected that the medical coding field will increase its career opportunities by 18% in the coming years; already, the field offers more than 4,000 jobs in that state alone. And of course, this also means that Arizona medical coding schools are plentiful, with programs existing in Phoenix, Tucson, and Glendale, to name just three.
It is refreshing, in this day and age, to come across a field that is actually thriving rather than dying, but medical coding is one area in which jobs are not uncommon—and, barring any major upheaval to the way medical practices and hospitals are run, it seems likely to remain that way.
