Studying for the CHDS Exam
The CHDS Study Course is a 12-week level 2 preparatory course consisting of weekly reading assignments and exercises along with supplemental quizzes* to test your knowledge. Participants will spend time reviewing and understanding the CHDS exam blue prints as well as studying level 2 clinical medicine concepts by specialty, health information technology, and speech recognition technology. The final two weeks of the course will be spent on practicing critical thinking and accuracy as well as applied transcription and editing skills.
All parties in the study course should be committed to following the schedule outlined and completing the course work in order to achieve the best results and to be as prepared as possible prior to sitting for the CHDS exam.
*While the CHDS practice test questions at the end of the course do align with the current exam blue print objectives, supplemental weekly quiz questions have not been mapped to the blue print objectives but should be used to test your knowledge and identify any areas where additional study may be needed.
Participants need to secure their products prior to the start of the study course:
