The Jumpstart Program
The Jumpstart Internship Program – Our Exclusive Internship Program
Breaking into a new industry can be quite a challenge for new graduates. A Medical Transcription certificate helps pave the way but in today’s society, practical experience is required. We are proud to offer the Jumpstart Internship Program to help our graduates gain that experience.
Through our Jumpstart Internship Program, aspiring medical transcriptionists gain hands on experience in their desired positions in the medicine, science and public health administration fields. Hundreds of our graduates can attest to the success of this program.
The internship duration spans 90 days on average, but can extend up to six months based on the student’s progress and performance. Be one of our next interns and learn from your very own mentor! Start your career on the right foot with our exclusive internship program.
