Medical Transcription Training
Gateway to one of the Best Careers in Healthcare
In medical transcription training, students learn
how to keep records by listening to audio
recordings of doctors and transcribing these in
the form of a report. Medical transcriptionists
need to employ their knowledge of human anatomy,
medical terminology, pharmacology and English
language for the creation of these reports. Their
job requires them to write down content as they
hear it from doctor dictations in audio
recordings. This content is saved in the records
of the patients files. For more information

Importance of Medical Transcription Training
It is important to be trained through a good
medical transcription course because doctors tend
to use obscure medical terminology, abbreviations
and words in their dictation. Medical
transcriptionists need to be able to understand
these terms so they can accurately interpret and
transcribe them. In addition, they also need to
have good typing skills to be more productive in
their job. They also need to know the proper
formatting of medical reports such as
consultations, history and physical examinations,
operative reports, discharge summaries and chart
notes. Therefore, excellent medical transcription
training is vital in order to be a good medical
Job of a Medical Transcriptionist
Medical transcription is a backend desk job and
so, transcriptionists do not have to work in
emergency rooms or consultation areas. They also
do not have to communicate with patients or
doctors. They work in a separate department in
hospitals and healthcare facilities using
computers. They can work as tutors for institutes
that teach medical transcription courses. They
can also work as independent contractors for
hospitals, work from home for a hospital that is
outsourcing its medical transcription
requirement, or work for other companies that
take outsourced contracts.
Prerequisites and Educational Requirements
There are no prerequisites for medical
transcription training. The job of medical
transcriptionist does not require higher
education, although graduates and postgraduates
may find themselves in a better position as far
as jobs are concerned. Originally, students can
use the certificates they receive in their
medical transcription course for acquiring jobs.
There is no specific formal requirement for a job
in medical transcription. Job seekers however
find it advantageous to be from a biology
background, with good English. Prior experience
in another organization or through live projects
in institutes can serve as a very strong
recommender for a job.
Components of Medical Transcription Training
Medical transcriptionists need to know medical
terminology in order to be able to understand and
transcribe medical recordings. Therefore, medical
transcription training involves a study of
anatomy, medical terminology, physiology,
pharmacology, medical legalities, and also the
English language. In addition, students are also
trained in computer proficiency, listening and
writing skills, and advanced typing. Students are
trained to reach a minimum typing speed of about
60 to 75 words a minute.
Components of Medical Transcription Training
Medical transcription courses teach the various
tenets of proper spelling, punctuation and
capitalization of medical terms. For instance, in
some cases, it is essential to capitalize
allergies on charting reports. They are taught
medical abbreviations such as p.r.n., q.i.d.,
etc. apart from initials such as EKG, CABG, BUN,
etc. Medical transcription training also involves
a study of the diagnostic tests, procedures and
medical specialties. For more information visit
