If you are looking for one of the fastest growing home based professions in the country, then a Medical Transcription career could be a possibility! If you are handy with typing(75 wpm) and like proofreading documents you are already ahead of the training curve.
What is Medical Transcription?
After a patient sees a doctor, the whole visit is usually recorded in voice by the doctor and sent to Medical Transcription. Then the Medical Transcription worker simply listens to these voice recordings and type them into words for the patients medical history file.
Most home Medical Transcription jobs would like you to have a minimum of 3 years in a hospital or physicians office first before you can work at home! But requirements like that get thrown out the window when positions need to be filled!
Medical Transcription Pay
The pay range is from $27,000 to $46,200 depending on which part of the medical industry worked(business support, hospital, physician or laboratory). Not too bad for a non-degree job!
You have the opportunity to work for hospitals, physicians, laboratories, medical support business or self employed. Medical transcription work, can be done from home with the flexibility in determining your own work schedules!
Medical Transcription Education
This is a non-degree profession and certification is not required, but you will need to know medical terminology, anatomy and word processing software etc. Most jobs researched by me required a certification and that can be done online, vocational school or community college.

Medical Transcription jobs seem to be all over the Internet and remember Transcription jobs are in other fields like insurance, legal and financial too! Take care and have a great day on purpose!
