Medical Record Transcription/Healthcare Document
Train to transcribe dictated medical reports. Instruction includes medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, review of English grammar and punctuation, transcribing in an online environment, editing skills necessary to transition to editing speech recognition (SR), and introduction to the electronic medical record (EMR). This is a blended course that meets one night a week in addition to online instruction. Upon completion, the Registered Healthcare Documentation Specialist (RHDS), which is a national certification examination, may be taken through AHDI. This MRT program is approved by AHDI and AHIMA, and is eligible for the Military Spouses Program. Although there is employment in hospitals and doctors’ offices, the majority of medical transcriptionists work remotely from their home. Our program offers an externship component.
