The process of transcription in the medical field requires a unique set of skills.

Never more important is this armoury of vocabulary than when we transcribe audio of sub-optimal quality or from interviews with speakers for whom English is not the native language. A combination of a strong foreign accent and a crackly phone line necessitates an excellent command of medical terminology in order to discern a specific drug name or disease.

The medical transcription team at McGowan Transcriptions are fully accustomed to working with a multitude of different templates ranging from inputting directly into Excel, client-constructed Word documents and to adhering to client-stipulated transcription styles. We confidently work with accompanying materials sent to us, such as PowerPoint presentations detailing new product trials, and are well-versed in the lexicon of dosage and measurement shorthand.

Above all, we approach the transcription of medical audio with the same professionalism and dedication exhibited across the whole team to provide the reliable and consistent transcription service for which we are known.
