Here’s What CanScribe’s Grads Have to Say
Success stories like these are why we continue to serve you!
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.
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.
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.
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 :)
I am so very happy I chose CanScribe College for my training. I KNOW I am going to succeed! My “Dream Job” is waiting and CanScribe is making my dream come true. I would recommend everyone look into this college; they have so much to offer.
This is the most extensive course for medical transcription I have ever seen. I know people that have taken courses at other schools that didn’t get near the information, exposure, course length, or hands-on experience that I received from CanScribe. They literally teach you EVERYTHING about the entire job. The staff support is amazing with weekly check-ins just to see if you have any questions or need anything along with the instructors that are always available. I feel CanScribe has prepared me extremely well to understand the requirements of the job, to do the job exceptionally well, create an impressive resume, and show that I am the best candidate at an interview by exuding confidence, AND they even give you contacts for prospective employers!!! What else could you ask for???
Canscribe is a fantastic school. I love all the instructors and staff that I had contact with. They were all very understanding when I inevitably could not figure out where to put that ridiculous comma! I have noticed since graduating from the program that they have added some exercises that I wish had been there when I was enrolled. That shows me that they are all committed to maintaining high standards and making sure that all grads are prepared appropriately for graduation.
I found it very easy to transition from student to employee. I thank the school for ensuring that I was prepared for that. Don’t get discouraged. It really does get easier. Have a great time!
I was lucky enough to be offered a position at NTS. It was the same company that helped me with my practicum. My employment there has been great. The staff and employees are wonderful and very kind.
Of course being a first year medical typist means there is still much medical knowledge I need to gain but the staff has been completely supportive of me, and I am grateful for that. I am also able to use the skills that I have learned from CanScribe and apply them to my work. Future CanScribe graduates will have a great chance of successfully acclimating to the medical transcribing world with the lessons provided by your school.
As I prepared to move forward with my medical transcription training, I was overwhelmed with emotions heading into the practicum. I was excited and nervous and, perhaps, a little unsure if I was actually ready for this enormous step. I can imagine for any student taking their final steps in training for a career in medical transcription this milestone conjures up many emotions. It is an exciting yet intimidating transition in the experience.
I can tell you now that I have completed my practicum to throw all of those negative feelings aside. You are ready for this! CanScribe prepares you well, every step along the way, to get to this point. Be proud of yourself for all the hard work and determination it has taken to bring you to this point. Be confident and believe in yourself; you have everything you need to become a successful MT/HDS.
I feel the practicum experience is an invaluable opportunity and essential for anyone working towards a career as an MT/HDS.
I was extremely happy to have the opportunity to perform my practicum with M*Modal. From the onset to the completion of my time spent with M*Modal, I was provided with the training, guidance, support, tools, as well as inspiration to ensure a successful and invaluable experience. All of the staff at M*Modal, who shared this experience with me, were professional, supportive, and friendly. The practicum was a wonderful experience, and I believe that the real-world experience prepares you extremely well for an exciting career in medical transcription.
My advice to those who are currently researching institutions offering medical transcription training is to seriously consider one which provides a practicum experience in their curriculum. A real-world experience prepares you like nothing else will. This was a major deciding factor for me when I chose to enroll in a medical transcription course and, along with many other reasons, was why I ultimately chose CanScribe.
Upon graduation, I had applied to several different companies including the company I did my practicum through, MModal. I was contacted by MModal right away and hired on the spot!! I didn’t even have an interview, go figure!
As for the working field, I truly love it!! It’s been the best move in terms of a career change. The biggest motivation for me has been able to work from home, choose my own hours, and work in the medical field….finally!!! There’s not a transcription that goes by where I don’t feel proud and fortunate to be a part of the patient’s medical journey. As an MT, you definitely are working on your own, responsible for doing your own research and finding the answers, but there is always either my manager or assistant manager available for either a quick phone call or email should I need some extra guidance or help. My contract is based on part time, which right now is definitely full time for me during my learning curve. There has been no pressure in terms of not meeting the contract minutes. Instead it’s a “don’t worry about making your minutes, that will come in time, we would rather see accurate reports” mentality. This alone has been a huge plus for me being a recent graduate, but I know that it’s only a matter of time before it all becomes second nature and production will sky rocket! I have a little picture on my desk that says “BELIEVE IN YOURSELF,” and I look at it every day.
So, if you are a current student or potential CanScribe student, you will not find another school like CanScribe that will support, guide and train you throughout the entire journey. I will forever be grateful to CanScribe for helping me get to where I am today. I honestly couldn’t have done it without CanScribe and don’t think there is any other school that shows the same amount of dedication to their students such as CanScribe. It truly is a school that stands out from the rest. And it’s very true about companies preferring CanScribe graduates because all the companies I applied to, and I mean ALL, want a CanScribe graduate!! So, to all those future CanScribe students who work hard and diligently, you’ll have no problem finding your perfect fit!
