Why Medical Transcription Training?

A medical transcription career is a good fit for those interested in medical words, grammar, typing, working from home, variety, challenges, and listening. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median wage for medical transcriptionists was $15.82 an hour in 2010 and many worked from home. Medical transcriptionists are employed in organizations, such as

  • Hospitals
  • Physicians’ or doctors’ offices
  • Transcription service providers
  • Self-employed

Since most encounters between a health care provider and a patient are recorded either by voice or electronically, organizations need transcriptionists to listen to the dictation and transcribe (type) it for the patient’s file. Even as voice recognition systems grow in popularity, medical transcriptionists and editors are still needed to review computer generated documents for errors. In addition to grammar and typing skills, employers look for knowledge of Latin (and Greek) word derivation, anatomy, physiology, and pharmacy. As the large baby-boomer population ages, the healthcare industry will see increased demand for medical services, such as medical transcription.
