Medical Transcriptionists

Advancement Prospects

Medical transcriptionists who become faster and more accurate will have an easier time securing better-paying positions or lining up new clients. Skilled and experienced medical transcriptionists can become supervisors of transcription departments or managers of transcription companies, or they might even form their own transcription companies. Some also become teachers, consultants, or authors or editors of books on the subject of medical transcription. They may also become medical transcription editors, who review and edit the transcribed document against the actual dictation from the physician; speech-recognition medical transcription editors, who edit speech-recognized drafts; and quality assurance managers, who monitor the overall quality of work done by medical transcriptionists and editors.
