  Medical Transcription Industry News

You might be tempted to ask, "How many hours a day does a medical transcriptionist work?" It's a good question. The answer is, it depends.

If you work for a physician's office or a hospital then you will likely put in the traitional 8 hour day. Some medical transcriptionists work longer hours. You may actually get 10 hour days and overtime pay. Or you might work 4 10-hour days and a half day on Friday with overtime. It depends on the needs of your employer.

Another option for the certified medical transcriptionist is to freelance. If you decide to go this route then you will be responsible for setting your own hours. Your schedule will be dictated to some extent by the amount of business you can bring in for yourself. If you are good at marketing yourself then you could end up getting enough business to sustain a 50 to 60 hour work week. Or you might be able to command enough income to work 30 hours and live comfortably. It depends on your skills and reputation.

Medical transcriptionists do earn a median income of over $15 per hour. If you do the math and you earn $15 for every hour you put in, that's $600 for a 40-hour work week. Get some overtime hours and you are then earning over $20 per hour for your overtime hours. That's darn good spending money.

How many hours you'll work as a medical transcriptionist depends a lot on your skills and ability to perform. But the potential is there to make some money.
