Certified General Surgery Coder (CGSC) Preparation Training Course

General Surgery Coder Preparation Training Course

General surgery is yet another rapidly growing field in healthcare – and still has room to grow, in keeping up with the steadily surging demand. Overall employment of physicians and surgeons is projected to grow 4% from 2019 to 2029. In 2025, it is estimated that the supply of general surgery specialists will fall short of the increased demand. AAPC now offers specialized/advanced training to members interested in getting their CGSC credential.
