Medical Transcriptionist Training

How Long Will the Training Take?

Career Step’s Medical Transcription Editor 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 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.
