Medical Transcription

What is Medical Transcription?

Medical transcription, also known as MT, is an allied health profession, which deals in the process of transcription, or converting voice-recorded reports as dictated by physicians or other healthcare professionals, into text format.

What is the Scope of Medical Transcription?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of medical transcriptionists is projected to grow slower than averages from 2010 to 2020, at a rate of 6%. The demand for medical transcriptionists will increase as the population continues to age, but technological advances have made transcriptionists more proficient, which will limit the overall growth in the field. Transcription work is increasingly being outsourced abroad, but there will continue to be a demand for well-trained domestic medical transcriptionists, because reports transcribed overseas usually require significant editing before they meet quality standards in the United States.

Do I require any special skills to take up Medical Transcription as a profession?

You don’t require any special skills to start off in this profession. However, you need to undergo Medical Transcription training to learn the basic Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Body, medical terminology, pharmacology (drug names along with doses and dosages), etc. During MT training, certain skills such as the comprehension of American Accent coupled with good listening skills, computer skills, etc, are also improved
