Medical Transcription Editor
Prepare for the Future
The U.S. Department of Labor's 2010-2011 report (encompassing both medical transcription and medical transcription editing) estimates:
- A healthy job market as industry employment is projected to grow by 11% by 2018.
- A high demand for transcription services, sustained by the continued need for easily shared electronic documentation.
- The middle 50% of professionals in the field earn between $27,090 and $38,590 annually.
The dynamic medical transcription industry is evolving. Speech recognition technology is becoming more common, and while the majority of work is still done by traditional medical transcriptionists, a growing number of employers are hiring those with specialized medical transcription editor skills required to work with speech recognition technology.
Why Medical Transcription and Editing?
Medical transcription offers you the opportunity to have a real at-home-career in the growing medical industry! The field currently includes 2 important roles:
- Medical transcriptionists type the audio dictations of doctor-patient interactions, creating the reports that make up patients' medical records.
- Medical transcription editors are specialized medical transcriptionists who correct and edit reports generated by speech recognition software.
With Cincinnati State's Workforce Development program, you can train for both of these career paths, work from the comfort of your home, and prepare for the future of the industry.
