Are You Interested In Studying Medical Transcription?

ebusinessmom
Are you interested in studying medical transcription?  Would you like to know how to get started, what is the average salary, what skills are needed, how long would it take to become a proficient medical transcriptionist?  If these are some of the questions you would like answered, you can find the answers to the questions below…provided by MedicalTranscription.net Studying Medical Transcription I’m interested in studying medical transcription. What can you tell me? Medical transcription is a form of record keeping. If you choose to study medical transcription, you will learn to listen carefully to audio recordings that contain notes from doctors. You will use knowledge of medical terminology, anatomy and the English language to produce detailed and accurate reports that become a permanent part of a patient’s personal medical files. Although medical transcription is an important job, you should know that you will not be working in an emergency room or forming relationships with patients. Medical transcriptionists work entirely behind the scenes at healthcare facilities like hospitals and medical and dental clinics. Alternately, you can work from home as an independent contractor for medical transcription agencies. Medical transcription attracts many students because jobs in this field are plentiful and they...

How can I get a job doing general transcription?

vernette
I really want to get a job in transcription. Im a pretty fast typer, and Im a homebody, so this would be a great job for me. I don’t have any experience, but I found a place called Tigerfish, and another called Accutran….and a few more. They just said to apply, and you have to take a typing test. But, once I apply do you know how long it will generally take to get an interview and get hired? I would love to start as soon as possible. Thanks! There are transcription jobs (medical and general) on the website below. Some are in-house, some are remote. You can also look at craigslist for anyone seeking transcription service, and offer them a cut rate just so you can get the experience. Then use them as a reference.

Is my job being phased out? Should I look for another job?

vernette
Here’s a little history: I am a 37-year-old female who has been a medical transcriptionist (by title) at a mental health facility since 1993. There were seven transcriptionists working there when I was first hired; however, I am the only transcriptionist left and the only person who dictates now is the doctor (all the clinicians now are required to type their own notes). I also record and type all the meetings (there are one to two meetings a day on average). That now consists of 90% of my job. I can type minutes to meetings, but I still feel out of my element in doing that, even 10 years after I was assigned to do that task (whereas medical transcription comes naturally to me). Ever since they hired this one woman (I’ll call her K.M.), some of my job responsibilities (some purchasing and making graphs for the client satisfaction surveys, among a couple of other things) have been relegated to her. It should be of note that K.M. is the daughter of the President of the Board of Directors and she brown-noses Management all the time. My supervisor is getting ready to have a kidney transplant this year and will...

Whatever happened to Shorthand?

vernette
I learn`t Teeline shorthand on my Secretarial course at college years ago. I never got into a job that asked for it. But, i guess audio transcription replaced it. Does anyone still use their shorthand in the workplace or in general. I still sometimes think of words in Shorthand. It was hard to know what category to put this in, so i went for the suggested one. :S Same as everything else gets replaced sign of the times don’t know why they don’t leave things alone x

POLL: Would you find another job if you were me?

vernette
I like my job (medical transcription/taking meeting minutes at a mental health clinic) and have been there 16 years, but my self-esteem has taken a nosedive in general because some of the clinicians heavily criticize my work and a couple of them want to see me fired, whereas other clinicians praise my work. About 75% of my side duties have been given to a brown-nose who is the daughter of the Board president and she doesn’t do wrong in nobody’s eyes, even when she misses deadlines. (If I did the same thing, I would be written up). My boss says in a nice way to just stick it out. (Management went through a change in December 2008 for the first time in 15 years, and a lot of people are resigning). I live 30 miles away from work (60 miles round-trip), but have a very flexible schedule including working at home once a week. Nevertheless, is it time to move on and get another job? Move on to newer greener pastures… not worth it.

Job Satisfaction Question?

vernette
I like my job (medical transcription/taking meeting minutes at a mental health clinic) and have been there 16 years, but my self-esteem has taken a nosedive in general because some of the clinicians heavily criticize my work and a couple of them want to see me fired, whereas other clinicians praise my work. My boss says, "Ignore the people who criticize you" and "Clinicians will be clinicians". I also live 30 miles away from work, but have a very flexible schedule including working at home once a week. Nevertheless, is it time to move on and get another job? Sometimes when you have been at one job for for a long while you can get a little complacent. I would ask the clinicians who criticize your work exactly what it is that they don’t like about your performance. Who knows, it may be more personnel than work related. Good Luck

Need help deciding college classes to take, help anyone?

vernette
I’m starting back to school in the fall to begin my associate degree for administrative assistance. My college gives me five choices; general, medical, accounting, business, and legal. I decided to give me a broader chance of getting a job after school I would do both medical and general. I want to be able to finish in 2 years. I already have some college credit from my pervious school (not all will transfer since most classes were for the major I previously was doing). However, I’m assuming I don’t really need to finish the general administrative assistance courses since there is only 2 that are different from medical. (Speed writing and web page design). Should I just go for medical? Should I try take the courses for coding and transcription also to give me more job options? Or should I just keep it simple? it depends if you think you would like a job doing medical coding and transcription. I have a cousin who did it and she loved it, and make pretty decent money. plus she could often take work home with her for overtime pay. If it doesn’t take too much longer, i suggest doing the medical focus,...
