Medical Transcriptionists (MTs) are specialists in medical language and healthcare documentation. They interpret and transcribe dictation by physicians and other healthcare professionals. Medical Transcriptionists work in hospitals, clinics, physician’s offices, transcription services, insurance companies, home healthcare agencies, and other locations where dictation for the purpose of healthcare documentation requires transcription. Many MTs work from their homes as independent contractors or home-based employees. Medical Transcriptionists play an integral role in our healthcare system, promoting patient well-being and safeguarding against medical errors.
Note: Some career and education options may require advanced degrees, further training or experience.
