For courses in Medical Transcription, Medical Assisting, Medical Office Procedures, and Legal Transcription/Court Reporting.

Providing basic medical transcription training for students with no prior experience, this groundbreaking introductory text offers a unique combination of authentic physician dictation by body systems, coordinated readings and exercises by medical specialty, and supplementary information vital to every medical transcription student. Offering a distinct learning advantage over programs using professional readers as dictators, it teaches students to transcribe actual medical dictation-complete with variables in dictation style and punctuation as well as genuine distractions such as hospital noises and background voices. Grouped by medical specialty, each dictation report offers the best example of its type for vocabulary density, technical content, and other instructional criteria, and includes chart notes, letters, initial office valuations, consultations, history and physical examinations, discharge summaries, operative reports, emergency department reports, procedure notes, and diagnostic studies from each medical specialty. Students gain "real-life" transcription experience and understanding, and achieve the skill and competency they will need to obtain an entry-level position as a medical transcriptionist in a physician's office or medical group practice, a medical clinic, or a specialty department in a medical center.
