Some different types of medical typing jobs include administrative duties, medical transcription and medical coding. Medical typists can work from home or in a medical facility.
Hospitals, private clinics and health centers frequently hire typists for transcription, coding or general office work. For administrative work, some medical centers require education in medical terminology and related courses. There are usually separate courses to learn medical transcription and coding. Medical typist jobs require attention to detail, a fast typing speed and the ability to work long hours doing repetitive work. Medical typists who work from home may be independent contractors or employees for a medical company.
