Calendar Feb 26, 2019

Medical Transcription is the process of turning dictated medical information into typed records through the use of various types of equipment, such as micro-cassette recorders, Wav files, telephone systems and C-phones.

 

As a Medical Transcriptionist, you are responsible for receiving verbal information and typing that information into a word processing program, such as Microsoft Word or Word Perfect.  This information must be transcribed accurately, using the format specified by the provider (SOAP notes, discharge summaries, and other report forms)

 

Basic computer knowledge is a must, as are basic typing skills and knowledge of commonly used word processing programs.  Most doctors or transcription companies ask for a minimum of 60 WPM.  Also, many companies now use the Internet, which gives you the opportunity to work out of your home without having to drop off and pick up tapes.

 

Our program now offers you the opportunity to learn how to use the internet and transcribe files through voice files, using FTP and Byte scribe/Express Scribe and foot pedals that connect to your computer.  Our objective is to make sure you understand all the types of equipment that are out there for transcribing across the country.  Our course is State Licensed, Insured and bonded and all instructors are at-home medical transcriptionists that will be sure to show you all the tricks of the trade that we personally use.  We provide you with a list of job openings while going through the course and will keep in contact after graduation to make sure you are following through with the directions that were given in class regarding finding jobs and where to send your resume.  Our website has a message board and job openings will be posted for your convenience, as well as a convenient way to ask questions as you are going through the program.

Academy of Medical Professions: Clinical Medical Assistant

with Academy of Medical Professions, Region 9 Adult Education

Calendar Feb 26, 2019

There are few industries that offer as much opportunity ad stability as the healthcare industry.  If you are considering a career in healthcare, becoming a Clinical Medical Assistant may be perfect for you.   A career in Medical Assisting could provide you with everything you’re looking for:  A short training period, excellent job opportunities, a good salary, and a professional working environment.

 

 

What is a Clinical Medical Assistant (CMA)?  A Clinical Medical Assistant is a medical support professional that performs a variety of tasks to assist physicians in providing patient care, while ensuring that clinics and hospitals run smoothly and efficiently.  While CMAs working in smaller practices may be required to perform some administrative tasks, those working in larger medical facilities focus mainly on providing support services directly related to patient care.  Here at the Academy we offer both Clinical and Administrative programs that can be combined.

 

 

Clinical Medical Assistants are more often found at the physician’s side working in close contact with patients.  Typically Medical Assistants prep rooms and prepare patients for examinations, while helping manage medical supply inventories.  CMAs may also assist nurses and physicians providing direct patient care by taking medical histories, charting vitals, and assisting in examinations and procedures.  Some even perform more advanced tasks under the supervision of a physician such as cleaning and dressing wounds, removing sutures, collecting blood and other specimens as well as administering medication.

 

 

Characteristics of a successful Clinical Medical Assistant:  Excellent communicator, ability to multitask, organized, ability to handle stress and think clearly on the fly.  One must be compassionate while still maintaining a professional distance.  This job often involves working with people who are sometimes frustrated, anxious, tired, sick and possibly even dying.

 

 

All courses offered either locally at Adult Education Centers, and/or Online Live or through Recorded Classes lectures to be taken at the students own pace and time.
