Job Description for Senior Medical Transcriptionist

Senior medical transcriptionists transcribe and interpret dictations made by health care professionals (such as physicians) regarding patient assessment, diagnosis and prognosis, and therapeutic procedures, among other areas. These transcriptions require a high level of skill or accuracy. Reports are transcribed in an electronic format to create files that represent the full medical history of a patient. In some cases, health practitioners may dictate these notes into speech-recognition software, in which case the medical transcriptionist edits the notes and checks for errors.
