Introduction to Our Program
An important part of medical transcription is learning the terminology that you will be typing on a daily basis. Many courses simply show you lists of words and expect you to memorize them for an end-of-chapter test. MT School of Canada provides much more with photographs and sound files. We have medical links, medical articles, self-tests, sentence clips, and so much more. The following demo is just a small part of how our online program teaches you.
