A Flexible, Mobile Career Choice
The medical transcription field is flexible, portable, and in demand. Many experienced medical transcriptionists (MTs) work from their homes as independent contractors, subcontractors, or home-based employees. Because a large amount of the work is received and submitted over the Internet, an MT can live in Texas, work for a company based in Philadelphia, and transcribe for a hospital in California. Also, if you need to relocate, your job can go with you! Simply put, medical transcription is anywhere and everywhere you want to be. When you graduate from our program with a certificate in medical transcription, you will have gained knowledge in medical record content, speech recognition and general transcription skills. This knowledge designates you as a medical content specialist. This will enable you to seek entry-level employment not only in medical transcription, but also in related fields such as medical record abstracting, speech recognition editing and office/government transcription. Once you have gained experience, you may have the opportunity to work at home. Your first step toward a successful career as a medical transcriptionist is to enroll in our online Medical Transcription Certificate Program.
