Medical TranscriptionCareer StepNo Comments

Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, is teaming up with M*Modal, a leading provider of clinical documentation and Speech Understanding™ solutions, to provide training and job opportunities for those interested in medical transcription careers, with a focus on training, developing and recruiting for these transcription careers in rural areas of Kentucky and West Virginia.

As part of this collaboration, M*Modal will offer employment and signing bonuses to graduates who graduate with honors or high honors status from the Career Step training program.

“Hospitals need high-quality documentation to ensure the best possible patient care, and Career Step is a great resource for skilled new hires in medical transcription services,” said Bill Donovan, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at M*Modal. “M*Modal has enjoyed a very productive relationship with Career Step over the years in placing graduates in rewarding jobs, and we are excited to continue this partnership in the Appalachian region.”

Career Step and M*Modal have had a close relationship for many years with M*Modal frequently hiring Career Step medical transcription graduates. The companies mutually benefit from the relationship as it enables Career Step to place graduates in rewarding jobs while providing M*Modal a trusted source to turn to when in need of new hires.

“We place a high value on our relationship with M*Modal and the opportunities this partnership provides for our graduates,” said Ryan Ewer, Career Step Chief Marketing Officer. “Our mission is to help our students improve their lives, which happens when they are able to use their education to get a better job. At the end of the day, training is simply how you get to that rewarding career. Our relationship with M*Modal helps provide the payoff for our students—it helps them turn their education into a job so they can start working, earning, and building a better future for themselves and their families.”

Career Step and M*Modal are now expanding their relationship beyond general training and recruiting to additionally focus specific efforts in rural areas of Kentucky and West Virginia. Medical transcription is a great opportunity for individuals in these areas because employees are hired to work from their homes. This opportunity to work remotely expands the employment possibilities where more traditional employment may be limited.

“As one of the largest medical transcription service providers in the U.S., M*Modal is known for delivering fast, high-quality clinical documentation to hospitals, clinics and practices,” said Mr. Donovan. “Medical transcriptionists play a crucial role in improving patient health, and we are looking for passionate, highly skilled professionals to join our team through Career Step’s training.”

    I live in Appalachia, in eastern Kentucky. I use Career Step through Everett Community College.
    Will this incentive program apply to me? I am in my 3rd quarter.
    It may not, but it never hurts to ask!
    Thank you.

  2. Saroni,

    Once you are done with the course with Career Step, we will assist you in finding employment, and focusing on what your employment goals are.

    Good luck with the rest of your training.

    I live in Grand County, in a small mountain town in Colorado. I am scheduled to finish the Medical Billing Course this month. Will this incentive program apply to me?

    Are these employment opportunities only for graduates in those areas? Or does M Modal also hire graduates in other areas?

    Ana Adams,

    Employment is throughout the country, and you can work from any location at home. The positions are remote positions at home. This allows you to work from your current location.
