Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
With the new changes, the 7th edition will be even more efficient in teaching basic transcription skills to a group of students. The use of information on the transcription field, the use of the various body systems, and the use of the various reports utilized will help give the student a very realistic view of what it is like to be a transcriptionist. - Katrina Boyette Myricks, Instructor, Holmes Community College, Ridgeland, MS.

This text incorporates all the critical components of medical transcription, including anatomy & physiology and medical terminology from all specialties, medical report formatting, and the standard processes involved. Students are given a real-world view of the MT profession and learn about the importance of maintaining a reference library and staying up-to-date with the ever-changing world of medicine through professional development activities. - Deborah K. Cresap, MA, M.S.S.L., Medical Assisting Program Director, West Virginia Northern Community College, Wheeling, WV.
