For the last three weeks, I've been a "full-time" student with my online medical transcription/editing course. Today I submitted my final exam, and now I have to wait 2 weeks for it to be graded. I'm pretty nervous. I think I did ok, but that's usually when I do the worst, so now I'm convinced that I've failed. But when I think I've failed, I usually do pretty good, so maybe I passed...?

Oh @#%^ it.

Well, I got my test results today, and I started crying. I graduated the course with honors. Smiley: grin You can graduate with honors or high honors, or a standard graduation. The companies that hire through this program like to hire those that graduated with honors or high honors.

I can't believe it! I'm finished, and I've got a good shot at getting a job fairly quickly!!

I'm happy for you, Belkira.

From the limited info you've posted here, it kinda seems like that move to Hawaiii @#%^ed you over for no real reason/gain. Maybe that's me misreading the situation, I don't know. I'm glad things are looking up for you, anyway.

Thanks, Kavekk.

The Hawaii move was good and it was bad, but if I could, I wouldn't take it back.

I would, however, never accept the job that I had. That was horrible. Smiley: lol

Since you're all wondering, I got a job just before Thanksgiving. We got the paperwork all done and they installed a bunch of crap on my computer today. Next I start training, and then they throw me to the wolves!

If you all send me your full names, social security numbers, and dates of birth, I'll let you know if I get one of your medical records....




DISCLAIMER: Just kidding, do not send me this information. I don't want to be arrested for fraud if you end up getting your identity stolen because you are an idiot.

Congratulations!

I once did a stint in insurance data entry. Had a form in my stack one day from a girl I knew in high school which had all her stats on it and her medical issue. Wasn't anything scandalous like monkey clap or an extra vagina but I still felt odd just knowing that level of stuff about her.

I'd love to know the medical terminology for that, but I refuse to google it.

And congrats Belkira, there seem to be lots of jobs in your field here in the NYC area and I expect that's the same everywhere. It should be comforting to be in a field that has a high demand.

Well the plural of vagina is vaginas, so let's go with that.

Thanks! It's funny, because we always hear about how MT is going away. When ACA happened, there was a huge uproar that electronic medical records would be the death of this career.

I'm assuming, though, that this happens with any new job you pursue. Smiley: smile

ETA: Also? HIPAA is @#%^ing boring.

As long as there are doctors who are happier dictating into an iPhone than they are typing up paragraphs, there will always be careers in this field.

OMG! Friends wife had brain surgery this past year (actually *twice* this past year, long story). While she was recovering, the doctor was telling him about how well the procedure went, how he was able to visualize the whole area, etc, and proceeded to show him pictures of her brain on his iPhone. I really don't want to think about how they got there. I mean, I'm hoping he didn't actually have his iPhone in the OR, but you never know right?

If Grey's Anatomy has taught me anything, it's that the doctors have their phones in the OR and there is a nurse or candystriper or someone standing next to them. When it rings, she tells them who it is. I'm assume she also knows how to utilize the camera function.

After getting over the initial "You were taking selfies in the OR with my brain?!?" squeamishness, I'd want to see what my brain looked like.

Teaching moments.

I had my first baby at the U of MN Hospital. When it was time, I was wheeled into the delivery room, put behind a curtain, stripped down, strirruped up and put into the position. Then the curtain was opened and there was whole class full of wide-eyed med students shuffling in for the 'live' presentation. At that point I was beyond all modesty and hoping maybe many hands would make light work, but they didn't help at all.
