Career Step Releases New “Day in the Life” Video Profiling Medical Transcription Careers

Provo, UT, January 16, 2015 --( Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, has released a new career profile video highlighting a day in the life of a medical transcriptionist to give students a look into the at-home medical transcription career and the benefits of this career path.

“Medical transcription is a behind-the-scenes healthcare profession that many people are not aware of until they begin looking for a viable at-home career,” said Ben Hartman, Career Step Director of Admissions. “We are excited about this new video as it enables our prospective students to quickly understand what an at-home medical transcription career really looks like. They will learn more about what transcriptionists do and how that career could fit into their own lives.”

The three minute video follows Erika Gomm, a Career Step medical transcription student who graduated several years ago after completing the training program in just seven months. Erika is now able to supplement her family’s income by working part-time from home while caring for her six children. In the video, she describes what her average day looks like and how her career choice has impacted her family.

“The decision to train for and begin a new career is one of the most important decisions an individual can make, and it can be particularly challenging if they do not know anyone working in the field they are considering,” said Ryan Ewer, Career Step Vice President of Enrollments and Marketing. “Our hope with this video is to give everyone the opportunity to hear directly from someone who made the choice to train for and start a medical transcription career and the impact that has had on her life for the better.”

Career Step has been training some of the best medical transcriptionists in the country for over 20 years. The school’s Medical Transcription Editor program is entirely online, allowing students to train at home at their own pace and on their own schedule for their at-home career. The employer-trusted curriculum includes extensive hands-on practice, and Career Step’s program is also approved by the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI). Over 900 employers have hired Career Step graduates over the years—many waiving the two to three years of experience typically required for at-home employees for Career Step graduates—and 95 percent of Career Step’s Medical Transcription Editor graduates work in the field after graduation.
