Ingrid Fernandez in Miami said: Sorry, but not in my case and everyone's case is different.. right?? I am sharing what I am going through and not what I am reading on the internet. Understand that not everyone has the same experiences and some people talk bad about MT because for them it did not go well and may be they did not have what it takes to be MT and then have to talk negative about becoming a MT. I make more now as an editor than as a MT and that is the truth. I have been in MT for 8+ years and I am very quick at what I do and I am saying for me it has worked out.

Is this Ingrid from Costa Rica?

Ingrid Fernandez in Miami said: For me it was worth it!! I did my course with Career Step and graduated and found a job within 2 months. I work from home and love it. I make my own schedule and have time to take and pick up my son from school and do homework with him. As long as there are doctors and patients, there is work so you don't have to worry about that. I was not hurt by the economy at all since people do not stop going to the doctors all over the US. A website that helped me out a lot was www.mtinformation.com Someone mentioned it to me and it has helped me out so much. It has a lot of helpful information that is all about medical transcription. Good luck! www.mtinformation.com

Hi Ingrid...nice to see you on here :)

I'm sticking with you..not a lot of positive feedback for MT and Career Step. What's up with that? I also got an email trying to find funding for MT from MTACC.. www.mtacc.net/ What an impressive curriculum. Let me know what you think. It goes WAY beyond basic MT, very impressive and possibly more beneficial than CS curriculum. email me and I want your honest opinion for my future as an MT..I WANT TO BE JUST LIKE YOU!!!

Rak in Short Hills, New Jersey said: What is better for work at home, medical coding or transcription editing

I am an RHIT. I have been looking for work for over a year now. Coders that are experienced are working remotely more and more, as technology makes advances and it is possible to work from home and keep privacy and security of medical records in check. However, coding is a difficult field to break into without experience coding. It is a conundrum in the field. Yes, "they" say that the opportunities are increasing, and they are, if one is willing to put in the time, money and networking needed to get into the field. My suggestion is to go to www.ahima.org/ and learn all you can before making decisions about these careers.

Why blame Career Step for not finding your jobs for you, guys? They have a great deal of students & they provide exactly what they say they will. I just completed my course and cannot say enough good things about their interface as well as their student support. I was lucky enough to have a connection to a company via family, but I know several of the companies mentioned in this lengthy thread do offer their workers compensation of $100-$500 if we refer reliable MTs to them. Surely this isn't the hardest industry to crack into. Similarly to most others, however, it's good to know someone in it.

As far as the criticism of the MT industry in 2011, these voice-recognition software applications that people keep mentioning as competition are only good tools to a variable degree and *MOST* doctors *DO NOT* want to use them hands-on & edit their own as it pops up on the screen. They are quite willing to pay us transcriptionists to edit them for them. The payrate is near .04 per line on editing reports, but you can make up for that in GREAT quantity.

Career Step is a great course in order to learn this skill. It is not easy at first (is anything?), but most of the reports I type are NOT difficult to transcribe, even for beginners like myself.

I hear there is a bit more $$ in coding/billing. I've found being an MT to be a great foot in the door, myself. Fabulous part-time job and THANK YOU, CAREER STEP, you were an excellent school to learn from.

How much do you get paid if you refer a new student to Career Step?

Thanks for answering.

Judy – I am not selling anything for Career Step but if someone goes their it is a great school... I graduated from their MT school and made something out of my life. I guess you are one of those MT's that never amounted to anything as a medical transcriptionist and the world owes you now. Move on... We are all getting tired of you negativity. It’s time to retire in this too… If you are no longer an MT why do you post on this website or is that all you do now with your free time. They delete your posts anyways, so why bother.

anyone know of some other blogs/forums about mt? I am sure careerstep is great and all but too many posts read like a cs employee wrote them. i would like unbiased genuine opinions. the mtinfo website that people keep throwing out there is informative, but i am willing to bet cs owns it or "sponsors" it. its 2011, how are recent graduates doing? how is the job market for newbies? can these questions be answered without mentioning cs?

Hello Kelly, I wanted to tell you that I was the one who created www.mtinformation.com and I am just a single mom who did a lot of research and created this website to help other medical transcriptiontionists. I explain why and how I created this webpage on my page. I am sorry if I can across like CS created my page, but it was me not them! I am not sure if you went through my entire webpage but I list other top MT schools such as Allied and MTEC. I also list other forums as well. I think a lot of people talk about CS because it is an affordable MT school and they have good promotions going on all the time. I also attended CS and have experience with them and that is why I mention them on my webpage as being a good school. Back then they did not have all these promotions... lol There are a bunch of other MT schools out there so make sure to do your research and find the best one that will give you everything you are looking for after you graduate. Good luck with your search!

mtdesk/mtchat is a very professional website with a lot of MT resources as well as a trustworthy forum frequented by experienced MTs, many of whom have their own transcription services. No one there is selling anything, and you will get a reliable spectrum of informed opinion on training and employment.

I'm currently a student through CanScribe, which is based here in BC Canada, and CareerStep in the US, however CanScribe's course is done through CareerStep.

The websites are CanScribe.com and CareerStep.com

The staff there is extremely helpful. They also give you about a year to complete your course. If you can't get it done within that year, they do offer 4 month extensions. You can have up to 3 of these extensions which gives you an extra year in total. Upon signing up with them, you also get a number of different things, including Benchmark and Lil Red Notebook which are both great in my personal opinion. They have site forums which is full of staff and students who are all very helpful.

Before signing up with them, I did my research on different MT schools. I went as far as to call local businesses (including Northern Health, which is a big section of this province) and asked what schools they prefer. I asked about a number of schools. To some they replied that would never hire grads from. CanScribe was the best rated among all the business I called. If you would like to get into Medical Transcription, I will suggest you take a look at CanScribe or CareerStep.

You can email me at AliciaColville@hotmail.com if you have any questions or if I can help at all.

Shirl in Coquitlam, British Columbia said: I am planning to take the Career Step course here in British Columbia Canada. The online school Canscribe located in BC is charging $5200.00CDN. which is extremely expensive and they use Career Step in their curriculum.....don't know why they charge so much considering they use the Career Step course. Does anyone know how to tap into the Canadian market after you graduate from Career Step. It seems like everyone in this forum is from the United States.

Hi Shirl,

I happened to come across this old post of yours and was surprised to see that you too live in Coquitlam (however I just moved to Nelson, BC). . I will be taking the course soon and I am currently looking to find someone who is willing to sell me their companions texts/cd's. I realize this was optional but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

If you do have these books and are interested in selling them, please feel free to contact me at linda_wagner@hotmail.ca

Thanks,

Linda.

DON'T! I have a friend who went there and oh my,,think very very carefully, they monitor every single site to 'sell' their courses and even make up fake profiles in order to make it sound like as if they are the absolute best! Don't fall for it,,i heard that school actually 'blacklists' you if you say anything remotely negative about them, they will put down and discredit every other school out there while making themselves look superior when they aren't, they are just an online college exactly like the hundreds upon thousands out there. My advice is go to a local college, that's what i did, and i'm working at the local hospital where i got to do my pratice for my practicum and i love every minute of it! I hope you heed my advice and listen to yourself and not that CS implant ( i can promise you, she's either working for them or there's something in it for her, guaranteed!)

Don't be so hard on her, i know where she's coming from on this! The MT industry is not for everyone. I discovered that a bit too late, however, i am pretty confident that with what i learned, i might be able to find something different. For now though, i'm taking a break from what's been done to me by CS and eventually when i get my 'second wind' (and i will) i'm seriously thinking about medical coding/billing or further my skills into just being an editor, i would love that!

Hi everyone. I started the Medical Transcription Program through Allied Schools online about 2yrs ago. I am currently on Benchmark 5-1 & 5-2 in the Advanced Transcription Practicum class. 5-1 is a cardiac stress test and 5-2 is a sleep lab study. Unfortunately Allied School did not cover either of these reports in any of my studies so I am completely blindsided right now as to how I should do these reports. Has anyone out there done these kind of reports before? Or has anyone out there graduated from this program at Allied Schools and found a job doing medical transcription? Any kind of help would be very much appreciated :) Thanks.

I would recommend contacting the school and asking your instructors for help. That's what you're paying them for. If they're not helping, why are you paying them? You shouldn't have to scramble around looking for outside help. Your school should be providing what you need.

Best of luck to you.

Thanks for your reply :) I have called and begged for help numerous times, also sent in my work to them to review before sending it in for grading as they recommended I do and all they tell me is to relisten to it. Well relistening does nothing for you if you don't have an ounce of experience (no chapter on it, no worksheets, no quizzes,etc) with these 2 kinds of reports so I don't know what else to do at this point...

I know this is quite old, but if any one else happens to fall on this thread, while searching for MT facts, I want to clarify something that HOME MT INDIANA said.
QUOTE:
"As far as taking the CS course through a community college, I have seen quite a few people who have done this and still can't get a company to test them because while the program may be CS, the school is not, and that is where you took your course"

I have taken my course through another college, NOT CS, (Canscribe Career College) and I am very happy to say, I just graduated this month (Nov 2011) and I applied at 6 companies. I had 4 get back to me, wanting me to work with them.

Do not believe that you must enroll with Career Step in order to have a successful MT career. You don't.

I live in NY and have a family memebe rin NC that is taking the same course through Career Step for a lot less. I find it disturbing that the course that I am currently paying ver $2000 for is being offered through FTCC for $175. I understand each State has different regulations but that is a huge difference AND we are paying for the same course offered through Career Step. I think they should definitely offer the course at a more reasonable price considering the state of the economy. Not happy at all.

I haven't checked into CS's coding program at all, so I'm not sure what is included in it, and I haven't attended Andrews' coding program, but I DID attend Andrews for MT (excellent program by the way) and everything I have read on the coding forum (Students had been given the ability to access all 3 school forums - coding, general, and MT - at one time but not sure if this is the case or not anymore), the graduates do VERY well after completion, both with passing the hardest certification tests and with obtaining that first job, because of the thoroughness of the program. When I get ready to take a coding program (possibly next year), I will definitely be calling Linda and enrolling there!

I completed the training and received my certificate and felt amazing until I was unable to get a job. I am starting all over again with a new training the good thing is, the company I am going through likes no experience so they are able to train you their own way. They prefer you have the MT knowledge but have not worked for anyone yet. I am thankful I found them and it was by accident talking to a lady in the grocery store who works for them. They are an independent contractor so pretty much unless you know someone thats working for them to recomend you its hard to just come accross one. They pay 10 cents a line. Not getting rich but at least I finally found a job. Career Step was WORTHLESS when it came to helping you find a job when you purchase the platinum package so if you do decide on them it is way to get SOME knowledge. Not so great getting a job afterwards.

Kat, do you think you could mention the name of the company you are working for? That would be most helpful. Thanks!

Before signing on with Career Step did you talk to anyone whom had taken the online course?? Just a little skeptical about it, but am really interested.

Misty_ICMT in San Pedro, California said: Hi Kelli,

I graduated from Career Step in September 2007 and had a job within two weeks of graduating. I didn't pay for the extra assistance looking for a job, but found they were a great help anyways. I still continue to receive e-mails periodically regarding companies that have contacted Career Step looking for graduates. I currently work as an independent contractor and all my clients have come through information I found through Career Step. I felt very prepared going into the workforce after my training with Career Step and still use their message board as a reference for job opportunities and company research, reference materials, and equipment info. Being able to transcribe "real" reports straight from the doctors was tremendous in preparing me for the working world. I highly recommend them!

Good luck!

Lauren? in Dallas, Georgia said: I feel like my training was just fine and thorough. I am 2 days on my new job and have had 100% QA grading on my submitted reports. Career Step is cheaper than both of those schools, and they are very nice people to deal with. It's up to you. I thought of Andrews and wanted to attend there, but it is SO expensive. They may teach more (I have no idea), but guess what? I got a job, and that's all that matters. The fact is that there is so much to learn after you graduate anyway that I really don't feel it matters if one goes to CS or Andrews. Every employer and account you are assigned to is different and will have their own rules and instructions. The point of school is to get that good base for building upon and learn the basic ropes. Everything beyond that is usually just style and subject to change once you are employed. I feel like CS prepared me well for what I am doing. And if you look on major MTSO sites, many of them recommend CS for training if you go to their Careers or application pain. Like MedQuist, etc.

Honestly, i think CanScribe Career college is better! The teachers are very supportive and you actually learn something!
Canscribe is one of the top medical transcription schools and they are AHDI approved. AHDI is a medical transcription association that reviews and approves certain schools that meet their high standards. There is a full review of the canscribe course at canscribe.com/medical-transcription-home/ And it is all online too.

Another thing I would suggest to you is to get your Registered Medical Transcriptionist (RMT) certification through AHDI after you graduate. With a 6% estimated growth rate, you will need to do everything you can to pump up your resume to help you stand out from other applicants. Career Step does also offer graduate assistance after you graduate to help you find a job.

Good luck with your search!

Hi Pat! I've heard nothing but great things about their Medical Coding and Billing program. I graduated from them in Medical Transcription and absolutely LOVED the school. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at bcharmed01@yahoo.com.

I am interested in becoming a certified medical biller/coder and I'm looking at Career Step as one of my options... (I am also looking at UCR's extension medical billing and coding class, I can't decide yet).

Does anyone have any experience with their medical coding and billing class? This thread mostly talks about medical transcription but if anyone used Career Step for the medical billing and coding class, please post!! I would like to enroll into one of these courses by the end of July (for the discount :p)

I too am interested in the Medical Coding program at Career Step. I have checked out many of the schools accredited by AHIMA, but they all take at least 15 months to complete and you don't have the flexibility to complete the program at your own pace. I am "this close" to starting with Career Step. I am holding back slightly because I know it is hard to break into this field without actual experience.

I am looking for a mid-life career change, and have been interested in the medical field since I was a child. I am currently in a very high stress job and it's wearing on me. This would be a significant drop in salary for me, but my current job has taken years off my life with the level of stress, worry, and responsibility. I am in a point in my life where I am done with all that. Can Coding be a stressful job? Are you required to code a certain amount of records in a specific time frame?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide input.
