I choose to become a Medical Transcriptionist to use my skills in writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation. My passion for medical transcription arose because of my love for research and thirst for knowledge. I have been curious about new diagnoses, medications, technologies, and new treatment options. Being a transcriptionist; learning new and challenging problems people face on a day-to-day basis will boost my knowledge for medical information. As you learn and understand these things, it's easier to know your own bodies necessities. My father, Oh how I loved my father, he was the greatest man I have ever know. He passed away seven years ago from a stroke. If I had known the signs and symptoms, I probable could have saved him. I felt helpless after the fact. "Why didn't I know"? How can someone be helped If you don't know or understand what is happening to them. His stroke was on Thanksgiving Day, I will never forget. For this heart breaking day, it gives me great pleasure to work within the medical field. I want to understand why and how the signs we see in people can give information about what preventatives to take. I know I have determination to work hard, the compassion needed while assisting patients, and the ability to work well under pressure and in a team-oriented environment.
