Medical transcription trainingTechnology makes the world go round. There is no denying that the ones with the most technology are most often the ones who are succeeding the most. Technology allows companies to produce more and a lower cost. For the practitioner, technology can do the same. Using text expanders efficiently, you can dramatically produce more lines with less typing. If you are not using it, then you are behind in the game and losing money. For other technology like software packages, you can do more work effectively the better you understand the software. 

As part of our medical transcription training program, Med-Line offers many technology webinars as well as a technology course designed to give students a significant edge on the competition. Sadly, mot MTs are very deficient when it comes to technology. Many medical transcription training programs only lightly cover technology which is only contributing to the problems. 

As a student of a medical transcription training program that highly values technology, you have access to resources most students from other programs do not. I cannot encourage you strongly enough Take advantage of every technology webinar available. Use it to learn software tools that, in all honesty, most MTs are very unfamiliar with. Knowing how to use Powerpoint to develop web presentations or Excel to develop production spreadsheets will set you ahead of the game. 

Visit the student webinar page of the website to see currently scheduled technology webinars and register today. If there are topics that interest you but you do not see in the webinar menu, send me an email at and I will see if we can get one created for you so you can learn all you can during your medical transcription training program.
