Medical Transcription Training

How do I become a Medical Transcriptionist?

To successfully enter this field, you will need formal medical transcription training. Career Step's Medical Transcription Editor training program is employer-trusted and even preferred by many employers when they're hiring new graduates—which is why over 90% of our medical transcription graduates get jobs right off the bat. Formal medical transcriptionist training will teach you the medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, healthcare documentation practices, and listening skills you need to create high quality work and start a successful career as a medical transcriptionist.

How Long Will the Training Take?

Career Step’s Medical Transcription Editor training program is designed to be completed in 4 months of full-time study. However, the online format allows you to study on your own schedule and at your own pace, so your enrollment includes 12 months of program access to ensure you’ll have the time you need to complete your training.

What Will I Be Learning?

In Career Step's medical transcriptionist training program you'll learn:
  • Typing skills
  • Medical terminology
  • Grammar and punctuation
  • Anatomy and pharmacology
  • Medical record types and formats
  • Productivity tips

After establishing a solid knowledge foundation, you'll move to the "practicum" section. In the practicum, you'll develop your transcription and editing skills by practicing on hundreds of authentic doctor dictations and patient records. This hands-on experience will prepare you to transition to the workforce as soon as you graduate.
