To Whom It May Concern: I am writing this letter in recommendation of the Medical Transcription A to Z course.  I decided to take Deborah’s course after viewing her free webinar, in which she offered a substantial discount for the course.  I had been searching for a job that I could work from home around my schedule of homeschooling my children.  This course seemed to be what I was looking for. I took approximately a year to complete the course, and found it to be very thorough and challenging.  Upon completion of the course, I was offered a position with a medical transcription company immediately.  I have been working for only a few weeks so far.  I feel that the Medical Transcription A to Z course has prepared me excellently for this transition.

From a Client

Deborah’s Touch has been such a tremendous help over the past several months. I can’t believe our working relationship is nearing one year (in December).  We absolutely love working with [our transcriptionists] on a daily basis.

(Originally posted to our Facebook Page: The Medical Transcription Service)  I knew I recognized you! I took your course 25 years ago and have been working as a transcriptionist ever since!

I have to constantly pinch myself that I work with such a thoughtful little bunch. I love my job and still have to pinch myself to believe that it started with timidly but curiously attending one homeschool conference workshop! I’m so glad you came to Albuquerque that year. Thank you!

From one of our MTs who completed the A to Z course in 2019:

I’ve really settled in and am much more comfortable with the work.  In my experience, other more experienced transcriptionists are more than happy to offer advice and answer questions … a very friendly bunch!  And the head of the medical records department at the clinic whom we address all our questions to and who checks our work is very happy with our work AND working with Deborah’s Touch (and I’ve seen so many compliments online for D’s Touch and how professional they are to work with).  They are encouraging, honest, and generous with kind gestures that you’ll just have to wait to experience until you begin working with them!

This letter is in reference to the A to Z Medical Transcription course. I started this course in July of 2019 and completed the course in January 2020. It is my opinion that this course is very thorough in introducing the transcriptionist to the field of Medical Transcription and preparing this person for employment in the field following completion of the program. The amount of anatomical terminology as well as transcription practice available is very thorough, offering hours of practice with various dictators and specialties. I felt prepared and ready to begin a career in the transcription field following successful completion of this program. Deborah was very helpful throughout the process, very kind and courteous with questions, and encouraging in not only completing the course, but also in finding employment following completion. I would highly recommend this course to anyone seeking to become independent in employment as a medical transcriptionist.

To Prospective Students of the Medical Transcription A to Z course: I am a recent graduate of the course and already working in a wonderful position with one of Deborah Burns’ clients. That alone is qualification enough, but there is so much more to recommend about this course and its creator. Medical Transcription A to Z is designed very simply and the process is easy to follow – yet the content is challenging, thorough, and all that you need to prepare you for a satisfying career in medical transcription. You can do the course at your own pace and from the comfort of your own home, two criteria that for many of us are not just desirable but also absolutely necessary. The first part of the course is an intensive study in root words and medical terminology and even some training in anatomy and physiology so you can more thoroughly understand what you will be transcribing. There is also some fairly extensive coverage of pharmacology as well as information about various medical specialties. The second part of the course provides many hours of actual dictation that you will transcribe and turn in to be reviewed. This is invaluable! Not only …

Hi, Deborah. I took your transcription course 21 years ago and have been self-employed as an MT ever since! I am looking for an independent contractor to help with transcription for a hematology/oncology office. As I know firsthand that your course is wonderful and produces excellent transcriptionists, would it be possible to share the job posting on your FB page? I appreciate your consideration.
