Upon successful completion of this program, you will receive a Certificate of Graduation and will become one of the sought after CanScribe alumni.
How Does the Job Market Look Right Now?
There is currently a huge demand for CanScribe Healthcare Documentation Specialist graduates. With international services hiring and an ageing population, there is no end in sight for the continuing need for CanScribe graduates. Employment of HDS’s is projected to grow even faster than the average over the next few years.
Because of CanScribe’s reputation in the Healthcare Documentation industry, 88% of our grads find employment within the first two weeks after graduating. Our grads are in such high demand that we cannot keep up with employer requests from companies such as iMedX and M*Modal, just to name a few.
I just want to say I would highly recommend CanScribe's course to anyone who is considering the medical transcription field. The curriculum is widely recognized in the industry as one of the best. Because of the great reputation that CanScribe's students have, I was able to gain employment less than 1 week after I completed the practicum and have confidence in my ability and know I will succeed and continue to grow and learn. I want to thank CanScribe and all of the wonderful people who work there; they have all been really supportive.
