Do Med-Line Graduates Get Jobs?

Medical transcription jobsOne of the most common questions I hear from potential transcription students is “What are the chances of me finding a job when I graduate?” The question is very legitimate as many programs simply churn out graduates, hand them a list of employers who at some point said they will consider their graduates, and then send them on their way. It is no wonder many of these individuals have a hard time finding employment.

What makes Med-Line so special? Simple. We train well beyond the ACCP criteria. All our MT instructors and our program director are CMTs. We do not offered weak 6-9 month programs that leave graduates unprepared for jobs. We teach our graduates that the RMT is a necessity and not an option for a professional. We offer an internship to qualified graduates that allow an intensive mentoring to work out those beginning job jitters and development of real-world applications.

What really makes Med-Line extra special? In addition to our medical transcription school, our CEO also owns a transcription service organization. She has over 20 years’ experience in production. In fact, she began Med-Line after observing that many schools did not teach to a level that made students job ready. Over time she and our management staff have made contact with many service owners, managers, and recruiters. We give each graduate personal placement assistance. We use what we have learned about the MT, what work they tell us interests them, and what needs our networking contacts have shared with us. Instead of sending a graduate to bang on the door, we are able to introduce our graduate to the right people. This more than gets their foot in the door…It opens that door wide. That is real job placement assistance.

No program can guarantee a student employment. Not even the elite Ivy League schools graduating physicians can make that promise; however, Med-Line’s individual attention and placement allows a much higher success. 

So when a potential student asks us what percent of our graduates gain employment we can honestly say: “All our graduates who want to work are working.” How many others can say that?
