The current issue of AHDI’s “Plexus” magazine includes a feature story about medical transcription students and the challenges they have in breaking into the job market.
I’d say that it’s an excellent piece that everyone should read, but as I’m the one who wrote it, my opinion is naturally a bit biased.
Nevertheless, the article does touch on some important points about salary expectations, professionalism, internships and voice recognition training.
I wrote the article because NEMT has an externship program that helps to train transcription students on real accounts. We’ve been doing this for two years now but this summer, we’re expanding the program to include sessions on professionalism in the virtual workplace and voice recognition editing.
The externship program is open to any AHDI-accredited school and has no cost to either the student or the school — it’s just something we do as part of our service to the industry.
