The medical transcription practicum applies the skills learned in the Medical Transcription Program to practical experiences.

Students are evaluated (a minimum of) every 30 hours during the practicum and progress is documented. Students who do not demonstrate entry-level employment skills are required to complete additional hours or repeat the course until the industry entry-level skills are attained. The Medical Transcription Instructor works with the Practicum Site Facilitator to assess student progress and placement.
