This text with accompanying CD-ROM provides medical transcription students and professionals with nearly 50 comprehensive reports that will teach them how to transcribe accurate and reliable reports. Included are medical transcription exercises with recorded dictation reports; surgical terminology with definitions and illustrations when applicable; proofreading exercises to ensure the report is transcribed accurately; and editing exercises which involve correcting the physician's grammatical errors and rewriting the report to make doctors' notes readable and understandable. Answer keys with errors highlighted and appropriate remediation are given for each section, and audio pronunciation for the medical terminology section is on the CD-ROM. This reliable resource will not only save educators time in making up their own exercises, but will also help students and veteran transcriptionists gain confidence in transcribing their reports.
