The medical transcriptionist course textbook is an essential part of your medical transcriptionist training. The textbook includes writings by CMTs (Certified Medical Transcriptionists), MT Practioners and even Physicians.
You are also given a CD to use along with the textbook to coordinate real medical transcriptionist practice and help from the textbook.

It is even in color and includes a ton of images to help you understand more about becoming a medical transcriptionist.
There are essays written by medical transcriptionists and some of them are light-hearted and even humorous. You won't find it difficult to read. Three chapters give you the fundamentals of medical transcription. The rest of the medical transcriptionist course testbook is broken down into chapters that teach you about specific specialties or body systems.
Additional Features of the Textbook
