[Part 2] - Online training module: The resident will participate in a didactic lecture, which will outline the basics of CPT coding, including common errors, difficulties and pitfalls. The PowerPoint presentation will be available online following the conference for reference.
[Part 3] - Post-test: 35 surgical pathology reports , in which the residents need to designate the appropriate CPT codes as well as the corresponding amounts billed.
