Becoming a Medical Transcriptionist

What is a medical transcriptionist? A Medical Transcriptionist is often also called a "Medical Language Specialist." A Medical Transcriptionist, or "MT" is a person who assists physicians and specialty surgeons usually by transcribing, formatting, and proofreading their dictated medically-oriented reports. Most commonly, MTs transcribe physicians' dictation that outlines a patient's health.

One can become a medical transcriptionist by enrolling in a medical transcription course at a local college, business school, taking a correspondence course, or by training through home study courses available from various companies. If medical transcription is your type of home-based business to start, you might also consider taking a basic business, small-business, or home-business course as well. A competent medical transcriptionist can certainly make a profitable, interesting, and personally fulfilling business career. A medical transcriptionist can find work in a doctor's office, a medical center, a hospital, and may even have a home-based business doing medical transcription at home.
