This is a ‘learning through listening’ course that gives you real-world transcribing practice at your own computer. Your training starts with basic medical procedures and terminology, a study of the human body and how it works, common disorders and diseases and how diseases are diagnosed and treated. Next you’ll get valuable experience listening to case reports, in various voices, recorded on audio CDs. These are just like those you’ll encounter in your career. As a medical transcriptionist, you’ll play an integral role in a fast-growing field that’s part of the boom in health care. And there’s a good chance you’ll have the freedom to work from home.
All textbooks and study materials are included with your tuition.
