Medical transcriptionists record and trascribe surgical proceedings, medical reports and records from machine dictation or rough notes from medical reports, correspondence, and patient information.
To be a court recorder or medical transcriptionist, you need a high school diploma. Court recorders must complete college or a program in court reporting. You may need a Certified Medical Transcriptionist (CMT) or Chartered Shorthand Reporter (CSR) certificate.
Many recent entrants have a community college diploma.
