Medical Transcription Schools and Colleges

Employers give hiring preference to medical transcriptionists with formal training. Community and vocational colleges offer medical transcriptionist training programs.

Students enrolled in medical transcriptionist programs are required to complete English grammar, medical ethics, medical terminology, and anatomy courses. Associate’s degree programs and one year certification programs are available. Most students also acquire hands-on training. Those with previous medical experience who understand medical terminology typically only need to take some refresher classes to qualify for medical transcriptionist positions.

Those interested in professional certification should complete training at a certified program. Many organizations hire non-certified medical transcriptionists, but those who are certified have better job opportunities. The Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity offers medical transcriptionist certification. Certified transcriptionists are classified as Certified Medical Transcriptionist (CMTs) or Registered Medical Transcriptionists (RMTs).
