There are a lot of rumors floating around about Medical Transcription being a dying field. They claim that voice recognition, outsourcing and the governments push for Electronic Medical Records are making the Medical Transcription field obsolete. Unfortunately, these rumors have been around for 10-15 years. I graduated from Career Step back in September of 2006 and was working less than a week later. Even now, There is STILL a DEMAND for Medical Transcriptionists!

Here are a few quotes from the MT Jobs board, taken from recent employer ads:
 
  • Medical Transcription is not only ALIVE - but SKYROCKETING at InScribe! Come join the elite of the elite where we do nothing but GROW AND GROW AND GROW!
  • Looking for steady work?.. We currently have 7 positions available, most shifts.
  • Tired of jobs going overseas? Want to join the leading 100% USA based transcription company with great pay incentives? Look no further, SoftScript has over 100 positions to fill!
  • You are invited to join our WINNING TEAM at Superior Global Solutions!! We have a tremendous amount of work and are looking for dedicated individuals who are committed to being the best.

  • Openings for graduates within the last year from the following schools: Career Step (Honors/High Honors), MTEC, INC., Winter Park Tech…)
  • M*Modal is always accepting applications for Acute Care Medical Transcriptionists! Positions offer excellent earning potential and shift differential.


There are many more, but don’t just take my word for it. Call Career Step and ask what their current graduate success rate is and browse through the online job boards at MTjobs.com.
Career Step has OVER 700 companies who hire their Graduates - “Despite rumors that medical transcription is dying, our employer partners are begging us for more graduates to fill their entry-level positions.”

I could go on, but I think you get the idea. If you have any questions about this or anything else related to Medical Transcription, just let me know!
