Denver, CO, September 15, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Celerity Solutions Group, a clinical documentation outsource provider, has partnered with Allied Medical School placing graduates from their AHDI-approved Medical Transcription Program into externships with the company. So far, the partnership has resulted in five successful externs being offered full-time positions with Celerity since May of this year.
Allied Medical School has been providing medical transcription training for a number of years. In 2009, the program was expanded and approved by the AHDI-AHIMA approval program. A three-tiered program that begins with general transcription courses before concentrated transcription training at a Beginning Level, an Intermediate Level, and an Advanced Level that includes a Pharmacology course and an externship complete with speech recognition training.
Eric Sharkey, Course Development Manager at Allied, said, “We are extremely proud of the Advanced Transcription Program and externship offering. This has allowed our transcription students to take their education and training to the next level. Partnering with Celerity now gives our students another avenue for placement directly out of the program.”
Allied’s Program Director, Beth Tribelhorn, added, “While many schools feel the education is complete after a bit of additional work in some specialties, the Advanced Program has been developed to concentrate on the kind of day-to-day dictation MTs routinely come across from a wide range of specialties and subspecialties. With feedback similar to what they would experience in a working setting, the students are ahead of their counterparts by having that experience in an educational setting.”
Celerity Solutions Group’s Externship Program was implemented in October 2010. Graduates of the Advanced Program that have earned a 97% or better on their final exams have the opportunity to enter into the Celerity Externship Program. This program allows recent graduates to put their newly learned skills into practice, learning a variety of documentation work types and specialties that includes both traditional transcription and speech recognition editing. Those that have successful externships and have or plan to take the RMT exam within six months are candidates for a full-time position with Celerity.
“Celerity is very pleased with the capability and professionalism of those graduates from the Allied Advanced Program,” said Celerity CEO, Dara Tribelhorn. “We have had great success with our Externship Program thus far and look forward to continuing our partnership, placing more qualified candidates at Celerity. We are committed to growing the transcription industry and keeping work onshore.”
Since the partnership began, Celerity has placed five externs with permanent positions within the company. Leah Franklin, who completed the Allied Advanced Program in April and the Celerity Externship Program thereafter, said, “This has been a tremendous learning experience. I felt Allied really prepared me for real-world transcription and to be offered a position directly after completing my externship has now allowed me to reach my goal of a career in Medical Transcription.”
