As a Medical Transcriptionist, you will assist in preparing reports and records dealing with patient visits and the services provided to patients. You will use computer word processing software and equipment, modems, and medical transcribing equipment. Some Medical Transcriptionists may also work from home or over the Internet.
Ogden-Weber Tech College has incorporated the Medical TranscriptionProgram into the Health Information Technologies area. We anticipate a continued need for skilled medical transcriptionists despite the increase of electronic medical records.Â A good transcriptionist who understands grammar and spelling will always be in demand.Â Their roles may evolve, but the basic skills will be needed now and in the future as the patientâ€™s medical record will always be a document that needs to be correct!
IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you are enrolling in any health occupation program, any misdemeanor or felony conviction relating to drug offenses, assault/violent crimes, sexual assault, fraud, or theft that you have on your record, will result in the college not being able to place youÂ in a clinical or externship site. As a result, you will not be able to complete the program.Â See your program coordinator for more detailed information.
