     BD (College or baccalaureate degree complete) 
     ELEM (Elementary School)
     GD (Graduate or professional Degree complete)

Display name and description are to be made identical with the content within the parentheses followed by the code to be consistent with other codes within the same code system.

These concepts are not abstract, and it is an intentional valueset consisting of all codes from EducationLevel code system.

This code system is used in the Person.educationLevelCode attribute in the PRPA_RM201301UV model and the PRPA_IN201311UV02 (Patient Registry Add Request) and PRPA_MT201301UV02 is the message payload.
