The purpose of the program is to prepare students with the necessary skills and academic knowledge for entry-level transcription positions in hospitals, medical offices, rehabilitation centres, and long-term care facilities. This program provides an overview of the theory, principles, and practices of the Medical Transcriptionist.

Medical Transcriptionists (MTs) are specialists in medical language and healthcare documentation. They interpret and transcribe dictation by physicians and other healthcare professionals. Medical Transcriptionists work in hospitals, clinics, Physician’s offices, transcription services, insurance companies, home healthcare agencies, and other locations where dictation for the purpose of healthcare documentation requires transcription. Many MTs work from their homes as independent contractors or home-based employees. Medical Transcriptionists play an integral role in our health care system promoting patient well-being and safeguarding against medical errors. Students who successfully complete this program will be eligible to write the Registered Medical Transcriptionist exam through the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI).
