Medical Transcription Certificate
Designed to help you prepare for employment in a medical office or
environment. Medical transcriptionists listen to dictated recordings made by
physicians and other health care professionals and transcribe them into medical
reports, correspondence, and other administrative material. They generally
listen to recordings on a headset, using a foot pedal to pause the recording
when necessary, and key the text into a personal computer or word processor,
editing as necessary for grammar and clarity. The documents they produce include
discharge summaries, medical history and physical examination reports, operative
reports, consultation reports, autopsy reports, diagnostic imaging studies,
progress notes, and referral letters. Medical transcriptionists return
transcribed documents to the physicians or other health care professionals who
dictated them for review and signature or correction. These documents eventually
become part of patients' permanent files.
Online Registration is not available for Office Skills courses. To register or for more information, contact Barbara Hammond in the Office Skills Center at (864) 260-6737.
