To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
This course introduces students to the words and phrases of medical practice through an electronic server. Medical terms previously studied will synchronize with those being heard on the electronic server. The course is designed to prepare students at an entry level transcription level. Students are provided with the opportunity to develop skills to transcribe dictated materials in an accurate and complete manner, following the proper documenting formulas used in all areas of the medical field. This course is also designed for medical office personnel wishing to upgrade their medical transcription skills. Prior to taking this course, students should have verbal and written English skills at a BC Grade 12 (67%) level.
