Medical Transcription Useful Links

These are some of the resources I found to be very useful as a Medical Transcriptionist. I do not recommend skipping the purchase of texts such as medical dictionaries, however, as online resources are notoriously unreliable. In addition, I find it is generally easier to look something up in a book than it is to find it on a website. Time is money when you are a medical transcriptionist, even though you are getting paid by the line rather than hour.

These resources are ones I have found to have very high quality.
