This unique book is designed to help learners enter the health care field as medical transcriptionists as quickly and easily as possible. The unique, class-tested format helps students build their skills as they work through five different types of medical reports - first previewing the medical terminology and then transcribing the dictated medical report. Learning tools such as Challenge Reports, Punctuation References, and Logs to help learners monitor their progress accommodate individual learning styles. Specialty reports, recent regulations, information relevant to document preparation and certification procedures, and helpful Web links are also included.
