Why Medical Transcription?
Medical Transcription is the process of creating electronic documents from doctors’ dictated reports. Translating oral dictation and editing speech recognition files are an integral part of work for today’s MTs. The position can be done within a hospital, clinic, lab and doctor’s office, but more often than not, this type of work is performed from home. In fact, Medical Transcription was ranked as one of the top ten home-based businesses in Inc., Parents, Business Start-Ups and Good Housekeeping Magazines.
Working in the medical industry has many benefits. Not only is creating accurate medical records interesting and challenging work, you also learn a lot about medicine. As you are introduced to new technologies, you will continue to learn and grow in this career field. Since accurate medical records are pivotal to healthcare, qualified healthcare documentation specialists will always be needed. With the North American population aging and living longer than ever, the demand on our health care system will grow as well – increasing the demand in all health care sectors, including Healthcare Documentation.
Quality training will be the key to your success as a Medical Transcriptionist and CanScribe graduates are highly sought after by employers throughout the industry. CanScribe’s MT course is one of the few that is approved by the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity. Our course includes focused training in keyboarding, grammar and punctuation, medical terminology, medical specialties, editing and proofreading and speech recognition. More importantly, our course will provide you with extensive “hands-on” practice to give you the experience you need to help you get hired. Authentic doctor dictations and real-world technology practice ensures our graduates are work ready upon graduation. Students have 12 months to complete the course (extensions may be available) and you can study in the privacy of your own home or learn on campus.
All of our students receive licenses for the electronic Book of Style (eBOS) from AHDI, Stedman’s online reference materials through Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and word expander software from SpeedType. Students also receive an Infinity foot pedal and a Spectra headset.
CanScribe students also participate in a Practicum as part of their course where they experience the ‘real world’ of Medical Transcription while being mentored by an MT Practicum Supervisor. Students have the opportunity to secure their own onsite Practicum with local healthcare facilities or will be placed with one of CanScribe’s internal or external based Practicums. Students create and submit a resume, experience the interview process, sign a Practicum Agreement, learn account guidelines and work on industry technology to complete their Practicum. The Practicum component is unique only to CanScribe and has helped develop the best trained MT’s available. CanScribe also provides unlimited job placement assistance to all graduates – forever!
