Has anyone in medical school taught you how to code and bill? Do you know
anything about personal and professional finance? Were you taught investment
strategies? Do you know how to run an office and be successful? These

As an intern, you will spend thirty minutes a week learning how to navigate
the EMR system, learning how to code and bill, and how to use modifiers
to capture all of the charges you have earned. Once you are comfortable
with those lessons, we move into how to get out of debt, how to build
wealth, and how to protect your family and assets from loss.
In the second year of residency, you will either learn how to design a
practice from scratch or work on a project for the office. You will learn
how to read business reports, hire and fire staff, write office procedures,
how to best protect yourself from lawsuits and, finally, how to look for
a job after graduation and negotiate the best contract that you can.
We have helped multiple past graduates start and maintain successful practices.
If these skills sound important and exciting to you, we are your program!
The Annual Residency retreat is held every September at
Capon Springs and Farms. We also hold an annual picnic, dinner dance, graduation ceremony, end
of rotation dinners and more.
