  • I trained to do it but never got a job doing it. You listen to doctor's dictated notes & type them out for case files. Maybe they do it differently now but that's what I trained in. I had to take medical terminology as well as typing & the transcription course.

  • it was part of the training i had to go through to be a medical assistant. what you do is get the tapes that the doctors record and then type it up to put in the chart
