“We’re excited about the career education opportunities our partnership will bring to the students of the University of North Dakota,” said Career Step’s Vice President of Business Services, Cameron Loflin. “Through our partnership with UND, students will gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the growing fields of medical transcription and medical coding and billing.”
