I can't find a defined course of study for medical transcription. Some places say one course will do, others a year's worth of courses to complete the training. Does anyone know?

I have read a 2 year course before, but this was not learning online. I would like to know myself so I'll be checking this website frequently. Is anyone doing this from home? How hard is it to get a position?

There are various types of transcription work. General, legal and medical are the 3 broad categories. For medical transcription, there is a certification required, and that generally involves a minimum of a year of training.

I am pretty sure one course will not teach you everything you need to know about medical transcription. You need to take courses in medical terminology, anatomy, pharmacology, grammar etc. to get all the necessary skills for the job. The only way to get all these skills is through a formal medical transcriptionist training program. Some of these programs can actually be completed in a few months’ time!
