Work at Home Medical Transcription Jobs and Information
Do you have experience and/or certification in medical transcription? Now is the time to explore a possibility of working from home as a medical transcriptionist. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, the growth rate for medical transcription jobs will be increasing by 14% between the years of 2006 and 2016, due to the rising numbers of our aging population in the US. There is also an advantage of working in the medical transcription field, because there are fewer jobs outsourced overseas due to the need of meeting US standards in English grammar and spelling and ability to transcribe medical documents.
If you are interested in working at home and do not have experience in medical transcription, consider taking online certification courses for medical transcription.
