In order to provide an accurate, consistent level of training in coding that is accessible to all internal medicine residents, Dr. Chick generated a web‐based complete coding curriculum ("Coding 101") designed to instruct internal medicine residents in the principles of diagnostic and service coding. Learners can watch videos or read cases and practice coding their own services.

Coding 101 is designed to perform well both as an interactive stand‐alone adult learning tool and as an instructional tool used by faculty within another curriculum. As such it includes both a Learner's guide and Teacher's guide to facilitate use of the curriculum.
