Often we think that once we are out of school, our learning is done. We learned all the terminology, all the formatting, and we are transcribing professionals. The truth is that learning is never done. The moment you think you are done learning, you might as well pack it all up.
Take advantage of continuing education opportunities. Attend educational webinars, read professional journals, attend local AHDI meetings, read about the EHR, learn new technologies, etc. The more you learn about everything, the more valuable you make yourself.
For those of you who are students, you have access to about 4-8 live webinars a month and over 60 archived webinars for free. For those who are not students of Med-Line, you can get access to the same ones at a small cost.
You may even want to consider formal education and obtain your Associate or Bachelor’s degree. It’s just a thought that is worth considering.
Just be sure to continue advancing forward, always learning, always bettering yourself.
