I'm not sure that cardiology website suggested by Rebecca will help much - cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery are vastly different specialties. However, the AAPC itself is offering a study guide for the specialty certification of cardiothoracic surgery that I think should be really helpful. It's called the 2008 Cardiovascular CTS Surgery Specialty Credential Study Guide. The Society of Thoracic Surgeons holds an excellant coding/billing seminar for surgeons and staff. It's usually held in the fall and won't help you now if you're in a rush to get up to speed but it's something to remember for the future.
