If you work in a hospital setting you may find that the hospital already has a full time transcriptionist on staff, but if you have your own office or are in a small medical center there may not be enough in the budget to hire a full time transcriber.

Your secretarial staff already has enough on their plates just taking care of daily business; in most cases they do not have the time or the training it takes to do the best job. Medical transcriptionists are people who have attended classes and been properly trained. In these courses they learn about medical terminology and phraseology to enable them to transcribe more than what they hear, in many cases a transcriptionist will have to be able to work with short notes and be able to convert them into a full document as a permanent part of the patients medical records.
