B.Voc in Medical Transcription

Stories you may like

Medical transcription is the industry that provide doctor dictated reports, procedures, and notes into an electronic or paper format in order to create files representing the treatment history of patients. Health practitioners dictate what they have done after performing procedures on patients.


If a patient is admitted to the hospital, or seen in the emergency room, or has an X-ray, for practically any medical incident, reports are generated. 


The medical transcriptionist is the key person who transforms those reports from the dictated form to the written form, to be produced as hard copy or sent to storage in a computer system.


As long as people get sick, injured, or visit medical personnel for other reasons, there will be a job for a medical transcriptionist. That transcriptionist must know medical terminology thoroughly, must have a command of English grammar, and be efficient on the keyboard.
