Electronic Coder

Best answers
I'm a brand new Pathology and Clinical Lab Coder and the first ever of my department. As I evaluate tools / resources I may need, I find I have a question. I'm wondering if I should purchase either the AAPC coder or the Pathology Service Coding Handbook by APF (American Pathology Foundation) or is there utility in obtaining both resources?

Secondly, does anyone know of a mentorship program, specifically for new Path and Clinical Lab coders?

Thanks in advance!
