Medical Transcriptionist Careers - Jobs in the MT Field - Schools and Courses and Opportunities - Work at Home and On-line

Medical Transcriptionist Careers - Jobs in the MT Field - Schools and Courses and Opportunities - Work at Home and On-line

Work at Home

There are many job opportunities, but few of them offer the freedom and benefits of a medical transcriptionist (MT).  You do not need a college degree or certification from any regulatory approval agency of the state or federal government.  You may want to become a member of an association or certification program though. 

The best accreditation is the American Association for Medical Transcription (AAMT). Just because you obtain a certificate from a medical transcriptionist training program does not qualify you to call yourself a Certified Medical Transcriptionist (CMT).  This is only available through the AAMT.  The AAMT also offers a lower-level credential called the Registered Medical Transcriptionist (RMT).

Medical transcribing involves the process of transforming dictation of a physicians (or other healthcare professionals) words into written text.  This can be stored as either an electronic or written document.  The transcriptionist may use a piece of equipment called a medical transcriber.


It can be a very rewarding business or job.  You can begin work in one year or less avoiding the huge debt created by a student loan.  There are even online courses available.  The courses are usually prepared by a doctor and MT instructors, who will review and help to make your computer a great alternative to the classroom.  Many of these schools offer help in job placement as well. 

According to Jordan McCollum, a content writer for 10x Marketing, you can earn between $50,000 and $80,000 per year.  The occupation also affords the applicant the ability to work from home, possibly saving a fortune in day care and other services.  


McCollum says the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the job outlook for medical transcriptionists is definitely positive.  The medical transcription field is expected to grow at a faster than average rate through the year 2012. It is estimated that the annual growth rate of the MT profession will be 21%-35% through 2012 He believes this correlates to more freelance work from home opportunities.

As an at-home medical transcriptionist, you can work when itís most convenient for you.  McCollum says that at-home medical transcriptionists are able to set their own hours and work at any time to accommodate their family or other commitments.  Donít worry; there is always a medical record to be transcribed.
