Career Step, an online school offering career-focused education, has released a new video on the medical transcription industry to educate those considering a career change on the opportunities available in this field.
“Our hiring partners are having trouble finding well-trained medical transcriptionists to fill their entry-level positions,” said Jerolyn Robertson, Career Step Vice President of Academics. “For example, one employer in Canada is looking to hire 300 transcriptionists by June and yet fewer students are expressing interest in medical transcription careers. Our thought behind this new video is to educate those considering a career change on the incredible need for medical transcriptionists.”
The new animated video explains why the majority of medical transcriptionists work from home as well as how much these professionals earn on average and what training is needed to be successful as a medical transcriptionist. Viewers are educated on the structure of the medical transcription industry and the transition to specialized medical transcription service organizations, which hire remote employees to work from their homes.
“Over 90 percent of our Medical Transcription Editor program graduates find jobs after graduation and the vast majority of them work from home in their very first position,” said Ryan Ewer, Career Step Vice President of Enrollments and Marketing. “These success rates are possible because of our long-standing ties to employers that ensure our training is meeting their needs and keep us well informed of the industry trends. Our new video is designed to make that industry information easy to share.”
Career Step has been training medical transcriptionists for over 20 years and is among the most respected and employer-trusted education providers in the industry. The Career Step curriculum is approved the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity, and over 900 employers have hired Career Step graduates over the years.
