It is a dying profession. Don't join MT. Read more about it here: http://mtherald.com/awful-future-prospects-for-medical-transcription-career-in-india/

well job opportunities are always there.. its just that there is no growth at all (unless you happen to work inhouse and are really, really lucky) and the salary is also peanuts compared to what people in other professions get..

Work from an office and u will earn well after a couple of years. Later u may work from home in a group of 3-4 HBMTs to continue to earn well as you can take 2-3 accounts. However, even after office experience, if u attempt to work alone from home then you will be EMPTY rather than MT. This is my experienced personal opinion and on top of that you will lose hard earned earlier office based MT skills.

I totally disagree on the above on certain aspects, but agree on most of the aspects.

Working from home will never leave you empty as far as you are fully equipped with necessary skills for which you require at least 1-2 years of in-house experience (or even less) depending on the caliber of your learning abilities. The life in his field will not be that bad after a getting the much required experience and knowledge. I would only say those negative comments are unnecessary and would only come from those who are unwilling to explore their potentials. The more you equip with medical terminologies and other aspects that are required for this medical transcription work, the more are your chances of earning equivalent to a software engineer.

All the best to become a successful medical transcriptionist!

I do not agree with him. I have been working for the last 11 years. If you have to earn equal to software people, you have to work around 20 hours a day. Is it possible for a human being to do work that long hours. My opinion is that do not opt for this profession unless you have no other way to earn. It sucks.

If you are good at English, want to take as profession seriously, join in this Medical Transcription, next 10 years this field surely will be there. Simply one thing observe in this forum and hundreds of medical transcription job postings are happening, if it is dying why companies need people.

One thing is true that this field faced lot of up and downs as it will be there in every field. In 2000, problem happened and 2010. Now the field is ok.

Reg vizag, already 5 Medical transcription companies are there, we also started 30 seater production center recently in vizag.

One thing you see, Mmodel (stanley-morgan), nuance etc companies are investing hundreds of crores still now also, without doing survey will they invest?

Because in US, a rule has been passed that by 2016, that every physician or hospital should use EMR...no outsourcing ..and also they are giving discount on joining EMR for them.
That's the case for fear of this dyeing business.
