Academy of Medical Professions: Medical Transcription
with Academy of Medical Professions, Region 9 Adult Education
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.
