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. You will also need to have the skills to correct grammar and spelling errors (VR/SR programs do not handle complex terms very well). We will prepare you for this through our training.
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 as you are transcribing the reports.
It is very important that you receive transcription editing training to succeed in the this career field. Those that know how to do editing can have a strong future in the medical transcription career field. MT Editors are in huge demand because not all transcriptionists have been trained in this area.
MTatHome Support & Job Assistance
Even though the medical transcription 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 advisers available to answer questions that students may have throughout their career training. This is why we are open twelve hours a day, six days a week.
Our perspective is different from that of most medical transcription schools, we carefully place a lot of emphasis on developing strong career skills in the healthcare industry.
This includes teaching you computer skills and job marketing skills in addition to the career training. This is important because, even though we offer job assistance, you need to know how to market your resume as well.
You are not limited to working in your local area. You can work at home for a doctor or hospital in any state because the work is transferred through secure digital methods.
Medical Transcription TrainingOur programs are designed to give you the best training possible to achieve success in working as an MT.
We combine traditional textbooks, software and online access into the student area. 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. There will be some areas during the course that will require you to do the class work online.
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.
If you have a busy schedule, or currently work full time, it might take you a little longer to complete the training.
Our MT courses are self paced, so how long it takes is up to you. You have up to two years to complete the course without having to update the training materials.Read More
