Medical Transcription Cover Letter Examples

Dear Dr. Hampton

I read with great interest your ad for a Medical Transcriptionist and am submitting my resume for your review and consideration. I have experience transcribing dictated reports for doctors in the cardiac care unit of a major hospital a private practice psychologist and an orthopaedic therapy and surgical clinic. I believe your psychiatric practice would benefit from my experience. In my current position working for up to five cardiac surgeons I manage a large work load of dictated documents which I convert into written reports. Two of the doctors I support use speech recognition technology which requires me to review and edit medical documents thus created.

It is also part of my job to identify inconsistencies or missing information and to follow up to ensure accuracy. In my ten years of experience I have developed expertise in the use of electronic health records systems and am able to translate medical jargon and abbreviations into the appropriate long form. I understand the importance of patient confidentiality and HIPPA regulations. As a Certified Healthcare Documentation Specialist I would bring additional professionalism to your patient care team.

I look forward to your call to discuss this mutually beneficial opportunity. I’ll check in with your office at the end of the week regarding the status of this open position. Thank you for your time and consideration.
