  • Summary

    I believe the education I received at M-TEC has given me a solid foundation upon which to build a very successful career in medical transcription. I plan to take the RMT exam within the next 6 months, followed by the CMT exam when I am qualified to do so. I have the necessary equipment to transcribe medical documents from my home office. I also have an extensive reference library, as well as Stedman’s medical spellchecker and Instant Text V Pro software.

    Objective

    To excel as a medical transcriptionist by building upon the skills that I have acquired thus far in this field.
