Medical Transcription Editing
Advancement in technology has increased the need for Medical Transcription Editors. A transcriptionist must know how to proofread and edit reports created by voice-recognition software. Our training programs will prepare you for this.
You will learn how to recognize both verbal and typed errors. It is not uncommon for a doctor to dictate the wrong medication name among other spoken errors. As a medical language specialist (MT) you will be able to recognize such errors and correct them.
If the doctor is using a speech recognition program to create draft reports, you will need to have the skills to also correct grammar and spelling errors (VR/SR programs do not handle complex medical terms very well).
Support & Job Assistance
Even though the training courses are self-paced and done from your home, all students receive personal attention anytime they have a question!
We feel it is important to have student advisors available to answer questions that students may have throughout their training. This is why our medical transcription school is open twelve hours a day, six days a week.
Our perspective is different from that of most medical transcription schools, and we carefully place a lot of emphasis on developing strong career skills. This is important because, even though we offer job assistance, you need to know how to market your resume as well. We prepare students for getting hired in their first MT job.
Medical Transcription ClassOur courses are designed to give you the best training possible to achieve success in working as a medical transcriptionist after you graduate from our program.
We combine traditional textbooks, CDs and online school access. This also allows you to be more flexible as to when and where you decide to study. You do not have to be online for all the coursework; some are done offline on your computer through our software.
Most students are able to complete the program in six to nine months; however, some may take longer depending on how much time they study each day/week.
It is a self-paced course, so how long it takes is up to you.
