Doing medical transcription in the Radiology Department of a large urban hospital
Pros: interesting work, great co-workers and management, good pay.
Cons: some difficulty learning how to do the operative reports with all new terminology.
I worked a 40-hour week doing transcription for the Radiology Department. I learned a lot about how to work on the Epic EMR system and also a lot more about the different areas of radiology, including x-rays, MRI and CT scans, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and doing operative reports. I loved this job very much. The hardest part of the job was understanding some of the doctors, but the other staff was very helpful in reviewing my reports until I had learned the terms, etc. The management changed quite frequently, but I liked all of them and our team never faltered.
