Puttur, April 20: St Philomena College recently hosted a campus recruitment drive in collaboration with Optum Company, facilitated by the placement cell of the college. The event saw over 250 graduate and postgraduate candidates participating in written tests and interviews for positions as medical coders.

Speaking at the inauguration, the principal, Dr Antony Prakash Monteiro, highlighted the plethora of job opportunities available in medical coding for BSc students. “BSc graduates possess fundamental knowledge in biology and anatomy, which aids in understanding medical terminology and diseases,” Dr Monteiro said.
