Physician Refresher/Re-Entry Program Medical Documentation Course

The Medical Documentation Course is an online self-paced, in-depth program that focuses on patient evaluation, documentation of the encounter and its billing. Instruction is presented through self-paced videos and handouts. There is pre-, during, and post-assessment of the trainee’s documentation: pre-assessment to understand baseline, after the videos to practice learned material, and then post-course to assure there is sustained facility with documentation practices, with written and verbal feedback.
