    Default Teaching Physician Orientation

    New provider orientation includes (but is not limited to):
    Types of service s/he will provide (E/M, surgery, etc)
    How to determine level of E/M services
    Documentation guidelines for E/M
    Documentation guidelines for operative/procedure notes
    Teaching physician attestation requirements
    Schedule for auditing
    "housekeeping" (their assigned provider #, assigned dictation #, signing the signature card, etc)
    Names and phone extensions of the coders who will be handling their documentation

    It's been a while since we had a new provider, and that's off the top of my head.

    Hope that helps.
