Medical transcriptionists, sometimes referred to as healthcare documentation specialists are responsible for manually processing voice reports dictated by physicians and other healthcare professionals into text format. They also may review and edit medical documents created using speech recognition technology. Our Medical Transcription program will provide the student an understanding of fundamental medical knowledge and terminology guiding the path to their upmost success in the field.


The median annual wage for medical transcriptionists was $35,270 in May 2020.


Employment of medical transcriptionists is projected to decline 7 percent from 2020 to 2030.

Despite declining employment, about 6,600 openings for medical transcriptionists are projected each year, on average, over the decade. All of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.
