My AHDPGTM Success Story
I have always known that the healthcare industry was where I belonged, particularly in medical transcription, so the decision to pursue this as my career was an easy one that I was so excited about! I am also a mother, which weighed heavy on my decision, as I wanted the flexibility to be home to raise my children while having a career for myself. I definitely found a win-win for my family and myself and could not be happier with my decision!
When it came to choosing a school, I knew that finding an accredited school through AHDI was top priority. I did hours and hours of research, looking at curriculum, flexibility, cost and payment plans as well as opportunities post graduation, and AHDPGTM was the best option hands down. From the first phone call, I knew that they wanted me to succeed. Their curriculum is top-notch. The instructors are so very helpful and were there for me every step of the way! All of the instructors have worked in the field for many years and are very knowledgeable. They also offer webinars and discussion forums to make you feel like you are part of a “team.” The whole program is focused on preparing you to become a successful MT upon graduation. The practicum gives you the “hands-on” experience working with real physicians and medical documents.
Upon successfully graduating from AHDPGTM, you will have the opportunity to become an extern with AHDPGTM through the wonderful “paid” externship program. This is such a wonderful opportunity to gain experience working on real accounts, typing for many different physicians, and transcribing many types of medical reports. I cannot even begin to tell you how valuable this externship was for me and how with this on-the-job experience I was asked to become part of the AHDPGTM “family” as an employee!
Medical transcription has given me the freedom to have a career and take care of my family. I am able to work in the healthcare industry and be a part of an amazing group of professionals. I am constantly learning new terms, procedures, work types, and I love that each day is met with a new set of fun challenges and research! I really LOVE my job!
I am so happy that I made the decision to pursue this as my career and I am even happier that I chose to do it through AHDPGTM! Good luck on your journey on becoming a medical transcriptionist!
