This online program focuses on the clinical documentation industry which includes medical transcriptionists and medical transcription editors. Medical transcriptionists type up written reports of the audio files doctors record after they interact with patients. These written reports are then included in the patient’s medical record. Medical transcription editors have received specialized transcriptionist training to correct and edit written reports created by speech recognition software, which automatically translates the doctor’s dictation into text.
This program is designed to train you for both of these career paths by preparing you to pass the Registered Healthcare Documentation Specialist (RHDS) exam. Those who complete the program will receive a University of Utah Medical Transcription Editing Certificate.
