Many people think they can get into the medical transcription industry easily, make good money and live happily ever after. Surely you’ve seen this type of message before with people selling correspondence courses. Can you really make a good living with medical transcription ? In this article, we’ll go into the good and the bad of the medical transcription industry and see if itz’s for you or not.

Medical transcription is a challenging and rewarding career and the demand for it just keeps growing. there are more than enough jobs out there for anyone willing to make a career in medical transcription .

But many people come into this line of work and think they can make a career out of it just because the demand is high. Then they start going through the process and find that it's a lot harder than they anticipated.

They thought it would be an easy way to make good money . It is a way to make money, but with anything worth something, it’s not always easy.

One of the drawbacks of medical transcription is that it takes training and continuing education. This alone scares many would-be medical transcriptionists away from the field. It takes dedication and a willingness to learn and keep learning. At some point you have to ask yourself "If the demand is high and the supply of medical transcriptionists are low, why isn’t everyone getting into this?".

This is the very reason. It’s not easy. It’s rewarding, but it’s not easy.

Usually, it takes six months to get a handle on the medical terminology and the different medical conditions, drugs , procedures, tests, and treatments that are required by the field.

Another hurdle is the fact that the medical industry is constantly advancing and constantly changing. Being able to adapt to new medical treatments, drugs and terminology is imperative to your success with medical transcription .

There are mail order medical transcription courses out there and many professionals indorse them, but it’s best to go the "hands on " route while learning medical transcription . On the job training or a college teaching it in your area would be the best way to learn. You can get the much needed hands on experience that you can’t get with a correspondence course.

While a mail order course may be helpful, it doesn't take the place of a live human being helping you learn the basics and beyond.

Medical transcription clearly isn’t for everybody. If you’re serious about earning a good living with a high income career, you should take a close look at it.
