Take your first step toward becoming a medical transcriptionist, otherwise known as a healthcare documentation specialist! In this medical transcriptionist training, you will learn the traditional transcription of the most common medical reports used in both inpatient and outpatient settings and the skills needed for voice recognition (VR) editing and scribing. During your training, you will review grammar you might have forgotten since high school and apply it to the reports. You will have the opportunity to work with real dictation using the same tools medical transcriptionists use.

In this medical transcriptionist course, we will also look at how you can further your education to take advantage of the new job markets available to transcriptionists, voice recognition editors, and scribes so you can position yourself for the future in this exciting field. By the end of the course, you will know the basics of the major reports and key clinical points of major disease processes.
