To the Editor: Dr Blumenthal and colleagues1 found that graduating US medical residents felt
unprepared for several aspects of medical practice. However, Blumenthal et
al failed to ask about residents' preparedness for several additional important
aspects of current medical practice.
For instance, do residents have any competence in coding their work?
Do they understand the differences between ICD and CPT systems? Do they have
knowledge of the coding standards, especially for evaluation and management
work? Do they understand physician work and how its definition changes how
they practice medicine?
