Here’s What CanScribe’s Grads Have to Say

My relationship with CanScribe began 5 years ago when I decided to take the MT/HDS program. I anticipated this program would be easy. I mean really, how hard is it to just type what you hear?  It was not long after I started the course that I realized typing what I heard was actually more difficult than anticipated.

I had started the program when my daughter was only 4 months.  I was doing really well.  Until I wasn’t.  I felt withdrawn from the program. I was struggling and had too much pride to ask for help. I avoided contact with the  school when they would call and was on the verge of withdrawing because I had fallen so far behind that there was no hope in catching myself up. Until one day, my phone rang, and it was the school. For the first time, I answered it. The instructor on the other end of that phone call was so understanding and knew exactly what I was going through because she had been in the same position as I was at that very moment.

She reassured me that I could do this, but it was not going to be easy.  She also assured me that she and the instructional team would assist me all the way, but I had to put in the work, read the feedback, do the self-assessments, and dedicate myself completely.  Now, here I am; I graduated with honors, got my 2 years completed in the field, and was hired on with CanScribe almost a year ago.

I am proud to say that instructor who called me is still with CanScribe today. The instructional team is here, you just have to reach out or respond to them when they reach out to you. Stay focused and do the work, ask all the questions, read all of the feedback!  You can do this!

CanScribe has greatly changed my life. I was looking for a career change and was introduced to the MT industry by my sister-in-law, a 20+ year MT. She insisted that if I decided to pursue this career that I enroll with CanScribe, the most highly recommended accredited career college for this industry. After doing extensive research, I did just that, I enrolled with CanScribe. I began the course in December 2004 and 9 months later graduated with high honours. Since then, I worked for numerous clinics in Canada, the United States, and England. I also worked as a QA editor and team leader for various MTSOs. When a QA position became available with CanScribe in 2009, I applied for that and have been working with this great college ever since.

I have seen many wonderful upgrades and changes to the MT/HDS program in the 9+ years I have been here, with yet more upgrades coming up in the near future. I have come full circle with CanScribe having been a student, graduate, QA editor, instructor, lead instructor, and now instructional department manager. CanScribe has given me the opportunity to take numerous courses to help me improve upon my personal and professional skills and goals. I truly believe that anyone who is interested in the medical transcription industry should seriously consider taking the CanScribe MT/HDS program. This is a wonderful college that ensures students get all the assistance and support they require both during the program as well as in the working environment.

Deb Albert-Palmer, CanScribe Lead Instructor and 2006 Graduate

The choice to take the CanScribe course and enter the medical transcription field has been a perfect fit for my life.  I enjoy the flexibility and the ability to work from home.  The medical field has always been interesting to me, and now I can be a part of it.

At one point during the course, I hit a wall and thought I would never be able to succeed.  That is when an instructor stepped in and gave me the encouragement I needed to continue.  I was able to get back on track and later graduated with High Honors.

I was hired immediately after graduation, and during the application process, I could see that CanScribe had an unmatched reputation in the field. After a few years of experience, I was delighted to accept a role as an Educational Assistant at CanScribe. I enjoy helping other students succeed, as that instructor did for me years ago.

If you are going to enter the medical transcription field, I truly believe that this is the course to take.

Colleen Thomson, CanScribe Educational Assistant and 2011 Graduate

Taking the course of medical transcriptionist at CanScribe was truly the best decision I could have ever made.  It was an amazing course that gave me every example of what I might face in the real world, so it did challenge me, but that was a good thing.  My instructors were amazing, so helpful, kind, and patient.  As soon as I graduated, I literally had a job offer the next week.  When companies see that I graduated from CanScribe, they are very impressed by that.  A lot of companies have a lot of respect for CanScribe and look forward to hiring graduates from the college, at least from my experience.  I literally just got hired for another transcriptionist position as of yesterday, and again, CanScribe played a huge roll in that.  Not only do I work as a transcriptionist, I also work for the college itself as an educational assistant, which I am so grateful for.   What more could I ask for than the opportunity to work for the college that helped me so much along the way, and changed my life?  Thanks CanScribe for everything.

Harjeet Mukkar, CanScribe Educational Assistant and 2013 Graduate

As a CanScribe grad, I have enjoyed continued success in the medical transcription field. I had a number of job offers immediately after graduation, and I have been able to work from home ever since. This has been a true blessing each time we moved, as my job travelled with me from city to city. I am now truly honoured to work for the college who trained me, and I love what I do!

Laurie Monks, CanScribe Instructor and 2011 Graduate

After a nail-biting drive home one winter’s day from my job as a dental assistant, I thought wow, it would be so nice not to have to go out in inclement weather. I also liked the idea of trading in my scrubs for a nice comfortable pair of PJs or a jogging suit. I researched online to see what kind of stay-at-home jobs were available, especially in the medical field, and what I found that interested me was medical transcription.  I did some research and then contacted some MTSOs to inquire about CanScribe. The responses I got were all exceptionally positive. I decided to then pursue this career. I contacted a student loans officer and was told that CanScribe was an excellent college and that they did approve many student loans for the MT program there. I decided then and there to take my MT program through CanScribe.

I graduated with honours in 2011. After graduation, I worked for 3 years for OzeScribe and Nuance. I kept in contact with the college, and when I found out about an opening on the instructional team, I was quick to apply for the position. I am proud to say that I have come full circle and have been working for CanScribe for over 4 years now. I love the job I do. It is such a rewarding feeling knowing that I am part of a great team who work hard every day to help students achieve their dreams and goals. I hope to be able to work for this great college until the day I can retire.

Lisa Thompson, CanScribe Instructor and 2011 Graduate

Taking the MT course through CanScribe was my best career decision. When I decided to take the course, I had 3 young children and this career offered me the flexibility to work from home, when it suited me rather than when it suited my employer.

I appreciate how well the course prepared me for the work world.  I received great support from the instructors.  I enjoyed every moment of learning and was lucky to be placed with Accentus (Nuance) for my practicum.  Accentus offered me a job after my practicum and I worked for them for many years before coming back to CanScribe to work as an Educational Assistant.

It’s difficult to put into words how happy I am that I saw the advertisement for CanScribe all those years ago and finally worked up the courage to make the call and ask for an information package.

Leslie Meger, CanScribe Educational Assistant and 2012 Graduate

It was 10 years ago when I accidentally discovered the online medical transcription field.  I was intrigued and knew that I would absolutely love the work, and working from home, not to mention being able to achieve an accredited course online from home.  I have to say that the first school I attended online, disappeared after my first 3 months.  I lost money.  I was upset and scared to try again.  However, I soon discovered CanScribe and was able to determine that it was an actual school, with actual instructors and that it had been around for a while, so I was reassured that it would not disappear off the internet.  I enrolled.  I thought it was going to be an easy course.  I love this subject, therefore, this should be a breeze.  I was wrong.  I soon found out that I in fact did not spell quite as well as I thought, and I had a lot to learn about punctuation and grammar.  There were times throughout the course that I was so frustrated with the material and the dictations that I was ready to give up.  The instructors were there to help and support me through those times and I went on to graduate with honors.  I was employed within 2 weeks of completing the course.  Over the last 10 years, I have been working with Nuance on different accounts.  Most recently, in the last 2 years, I’ve also started working with CanScribe.  To come full circle and be able to help students just as I was helped, is an amazing feeling.  I’m so glad that I pushed through the tough times.  Without CanScribe, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Natalie Bolohan, CanScribe Educational Assistant and 2011 Graduate

CanScribe have been highly supportive, both in answering all questions whilst I was thinking of taking the course, and now, having started the course, they are constantly in contact to ensure I am comfortable and do not have any queries or problems. If you are thinking of taking a course with them, I would suggest you do it :)
