~ More to consider ~
1 America's aging population is skyrocketing. The medical field will continue to flourish at an accelerated pace for the foreseeable future. People are living longer. There are 78.2 million baby boomers, most of whom will require regular or extraordinary medical services for the rest of their lives.
2 According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, "Employment of medical transcriptionists is projected to grow by 11% from 2008 to 2018...A high level of demand for transcription services also will be sustained by the continued need for electronic documentation that can be shared easily among providers, third-party payers, regulators, consumers, and health information systems. Growing numbers of medical transcriptionists will be needed to amend patients' records, edit documents from speech recognition systems, and identify discrepancies in medical reports."
3 "Job opportunities will be good. Hospitals will employ a large percentage of medical transcriptionists. An increasing demand for standardized records should result in rapid employment growth in physicians' offices, especially in large group practices." (Bureau of Labor Statistics ~ Medical Transcription)

~PLAYBACK of the AUDIO ~
Transcribe the Absolute Experience® .WAV audio files in ANY transcription playback software. Our files are sent in this universal (.wav) format to ensure compatability with all transcription playback software. (If you choose to order Absolute Experience, the Thank You page that follows your order contains a link to free transcription playback software.)
Using the audio files at your own pace, you'll transcribe what you hear, compare your work with correct transcripts of the same lesson, and correct your own work. And our correct transcript keys follow AAMT Book of Style® guidelines so you'll be learning proper form and the proper spelling of medical terms as you go along.
It really is just this easy to put yourself on track for a career as a well-paid, thriving Medical Transcriptionist.
~ How to Maximize Your Learning Experience! ~
To advance quickly and be ready to take advantage of the next MT opportunity that excites you, I recommend that you transcribe every specialty from start to finish. After 10 minutes of dictation, stop transcribing and compare your work, line by line, with the transcript keys that accompany your dictation, then reflect on what you've learned for a few minutes. During this time, you'll:
Find and correct any errors you've made.
Google unfamiliar terms to learn their meanings.
Learn medical terminology abbreviations and their meanings.
By performing these simple tasks as you go along you'll gradually and reliably make fewer errors while you gain greater understanding of the content and terminology.
