The Medical Transcription Editor online training program helps students develop the knowledge and skills of qualified medical transcriptionists in addition to the specialized skill set of medical transcription editors. The demand for well-trained medical transcription editors is rapidly increasing, and this program prepares students for both career paths, making them more flexible upon completion.
Students focus on keyboarding, medical terminology, grammar and punctuation, anatomy and pharmacology, medical record types and formats, and productivity tips required to work with speech recognition technology. The program also emphasizes practical experience – by graduation, students will have practiced transcription and editing skills by practicing on hundreds of authentic doctor dictations and patient records.
