One of the largest organizations in Medical Transcription is continuously looking for CanScribe graduates. This has largely affected CanScribe’s Medical Transcription Hiring Rates in an amazingly positive way.
While most employers require 2-5 years of experience when hiring Medical Transcriptionists, CanScribe graduates are finding success immediately upon graduation.
First of all, CanScribe is accredited with AHDI (Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity). In fact, CanScribe is the only school for Medical Transcription in Canada that received accreditation and has one of the best Medical Transcription hiring rates in the industry.
Second of all, CanScribe has partnered with major Medical Transcription employers throughout North America and Australia to offer students a 100-hour practicum at the end of the program. The practicum allows students to earn real hands-on experience with the best in the industry. In fact, 88% of graduates end up getting employment right out of their practicum! Thus, For CanScribe students, the transition between graduation and employment is seamless.
Sarah Harris, who graduated in 2021 said the following:
“When I first started thinking about taking this program, I had not too long before graduated from another school that provided no work. Thanks to a phone conversation I had with Deborah, and her constantly checking in to see if I was still considering enrolling and just giving me all the information I needed, I finally took the leap.
The instructors are all great, they are only a quick message away if you have a question. They are there when you need them even for the silliest of questions. Not only that but the staff is always giving you a call or sending an email to check in on you, on your progress, how you’re doing with the course load, and to see if there is anything they can do to help you in your journey.
The course load itself is quite tough at times, and very challenging but it definitely prepares you for the working world. It’s now a year later and I have graduated from the program with Merit, and within weeks of graduating had found work. I couldn’t have done it without all of their help and support. I am extremely proud of myself for my accomplishments here, and I could not have done it without the help of the CanScribe team, so thank you CanScribe team, for helping keep me motivated, for being there when I needed help or even just a little bit of guidance. I could never recommend a better school!”
CanScribe graduates currently hold a 97% hiring rate with AQuity. No, this isn’t a typo; CanScribe graduates are recognized as the best trained Medical Transcriptionists in the industry.
Don’t believe us? Listen to what Noel Tauzin, Vice President of Worldwide Operations at M*Modal has to say:
In Canada alone, there are projected to be another 5000 new jobs created in Transcription and Healthcare Documentation by 2026 in part because of the large number of people set to retire. This is another huge help to CanScribe’s high medical transcription hiring rates.
Fact: Medical Transcription in Canada cannot be outsourced. This means that your medical reports cannot leave our virtual borders. At the beginning of 2019, CanScribe was asked by both iMedX Australia, and Keizer Solutions for 100 Medical Transcriptionists each. With AQuity, Nuance, NTS, GTS, Swift Charts, and various hospitals asking CanScribe for more graduates every month, we simply cannot keep up with demand.
How do you choose which course to take? There are different colleges offering programs with the same name. Does price matter? Sure, but are you willing to trade price for quality? What about student support? All of these things should factor into your decision-making. We asked Kat Coyle, a 2021 CanScribe graduate, about her experience with CanScribe’s Medical Transcription Course.
“After 15 years of retail management I decided to take a huge risk and go back to school. CanScribe was AMAZING. They worked with me and my schedule, they consistently checked in to make sure I was OK. The instructors were always an IM away for questions. They always had positive feedback and never made you feel silly for asking questions.
I graduated in 7 months, with merits, and was hired within a week as a Virtual Medical Scribe with AQuitySolutions.”
I have absolutely 0 regrets and encourage anyone thinking about it, to just pull the trigger. Take the plunge. You will be amazed at what you can do.”
