This program will provide students with theoretical and practical knowledge using simulated case studies to meet the needs of the medical community for skilled medical transcriptionists.
Graduates of this program will have obtained the knowledge and skills required to compete for entry level positions in hospitals, medical clinics, physician’s offices and online transcription companies.
To enhance student success, we recommend the prerequisites even for those in the health care field. What we have found is that students currently working in health care use the skills, knowledge and terminology that is inherent to their specific field, are not prepared for other specialties and struggle through the course. For example, the person working in cardiology for the last several years may have lost much of the knowledge related to obstetrics, orthopedics, nephrology, etc.
To successfully complete this program, participants must complete eight (8) compulsory courses and two (2) electives.
- For your convenience, some online courses can be started at different times throughout the semester, just choose the course date that fits your schedule.
- The demand for part-time courses has increased to the point that we recommend you register early to ensure your acceptance into the course.
- Online courses are easily identified by CS at the beginning of the course code (i.e. CSSE 65 Accounting Basics 1)
- Textbooks and additional materials may be required for these courses. YOU are responsible for purchasing your textbooks and any additional materials for all courses. Please make a note of your course code (CS##) and see the bottom of this page for book order procedure.
