Wednesday Transcription Tip- Student Resolutions

Posted by Chad Sines on Wed, Jan 04, 2012 @ 11:46 AM

Med-Line School of Medical TranscriptionToday is time for a new year’s resolution for student MTs. I will keep these simple and straightforward. If you meet these three resolutions, you will be miles ahead.

In 2012:
  • Strive to accept criticism and feedback as positive reinforcement. It is a prevention of bad habits that would harm your professional career down the road. Your QA, mentor, instructor is your ally. They are not your enemy. Their correction is a benefit if you accept and act upon it.
  • Be a constant learner. The more you learn, the more you set yourself apart. Take advantage of continuing education. It is free for current Med-Line students. 
  • Begin to develop professional work habits. Do you have a professional email address? Do your emails to instructors read as a conversation between two professionals? Do you provide quality consistent work?
Well, there you have it. I hope you will include these three resolutions in your list. They are simple yet powerful. 

Let’s make 2012 a great year.
