Medical Quizzes & Trivia

Healthcare practitioners at times post their reports in the forms of audio files. The files can be stored in writing when they are transcribed. Medical transcription certification will take at least six months, though most transcription programs will take nine months to a year. Take up the review quiz on chapter one unit 3 and 4 on medical transcription and see how attentive you have been in class. All the best!
