You have probably heard about the possibility of working as a medical transcriptionist and now you want to know which companies are hiring. You are in the right place!
In this post, I would like to share with you 10 companies in the U.S. that allow you to work completely from home doing medical transcriptions.
If you fell into this post without any clue of this type of job, it is essential to know that medical transcriptionist jobs are much more demanding than general transcription jobs.
Not only you will need to have excellent English and typing skills, but also specific knowledge of medical terminologies, medical record procedures, among other things. For that reason, jobs usually require a level 1 Registered Medical Transcriptionist (RMT) or a Level 2 Certified Medical Transcriptionist (CMT).
Also, most jobs require years of experience, which can be challenging for those starting out. Therefore, an alternative route to get some work experience as a medical transcriptionist is to start your career as a Scribe/ Medical Assistant.
Before applying, I highly recommend you read employee reviews about each company on Glassdoor and other forums on the internet.
So, without further ado, here are the websites you can
