teaching in the Phillipines ....

Posted By: Sara on 2006-03-25
In Reply to: AAMT--where's the American in it? - mighty

OP - If this is in response to the article about AAMT teaching (or overseeing teaching, I can't remember which off the top of my head) in the Phillipines, the use of the AAMT acronym is NOT our AAMT.  It is used for the name of a company (not, to my knowledge at any rate) affiliated with the AAMT.  You can Google the name of that company and it does have American in its name, but its not American Association of Medical Transcription (I think that's our AAMT's name? Its way to early for me to post, obviously, my brain is still asleep).  However, the point is, AAMT and AAMT are two different organizations.  There's also AAMT (Australian Association of Massage Therapists), and many others.  AAMT is not exclusively associated with our AAMT.


Just food for thought :)

not for me
you say Phillipines, they say India
I actually heard it was the Phillipines and not India....That came from...
Rick's mouth himself in a conversation with me
They offshore...not about abuot India, but definitely to the Phillipines....
The Phillipines??? They clearly stated India in the announcment.
SPI heavily offshores to India and Phillipines.
That they are 100% Filipino owned and based in the Phillipines maybe?
Absolutely, sends work to India, Phillipines...sm
She's something alright, sending work offshore instead of paying someone in the US a workable wage. Name of company is Another Medical Must...owned by Renee Lella....look her up on Google and see how that's worked for her in the past, with a major leak of patient records due to dealing with the Indian company and their MTs. She trains her MTs most of the time using her cell phone in the car while doing errands or picking up kids...horrible. Bad, bad experience, never again. She looks at this board occasionally and still posts for job openings once in a while, but always under an alias or different name, sometimes maria...sometimes another name. Shifty.
In the Job Bank, company from Phillipines ..CYPHERSCRIBE INC. trying to find new clients.
What part of MT jobseeker's don't they get. They need to solicit work on another board.  Why would we want to offshore to them.
They have at least 1, maybe 2 teaching
hospitals and you typically get a lot of ESLs with them.  You also get a ton of new dictators every year.   Pay is based on lots of things and many MTs have trouble figuring out their rate.   Many have complained how hard it is to make lines.   They are currently training women in Trinidad in medical transcription so it is a no brainer that the jobs will follow eventually. 
that is why I got out of teaching also. I sm
could not take anymore of the work at home I have a child thing. Folks came in not even knowing what an MT was. The schools put no pre-requisites on the course, wanted the course done in too little time etc. Bottom line is you cannot tell these people anything, they have to find out for themselves. Some will stay in and keep learning, some wont. I just don't want to be their babysitter anymore.
Teaching hospital
I love my teaching hospital account at MDI. Many of the ESLs are better than the English-speaking docs.
teaching hospital
I don't work for Keystrokes but my account is also a teadching hospital and it is very difficult for me. There are so many ESLs. Some of the dictator are horrible. Is the account you are on the same?
Education. Think that I could get a job teaching and
Or at least partial forgiveness if I don't get a very high paying job at first. A dream of mine and the gov't is encouraging with loans and grants, so I decided to go for it. It will be hard work studying but then again it will help make ends meet and I will have a future, rather than sitting and feeling sorry for myself as an MT like do lately. Thanks for asking.
It depends. If it is a teaching hospital it can be very

difficult.  I had about 15 years' experience when I started a job where I did a teaching hospital and it was very challenging for me, lots of new tests, labs, etc.  New doctors rotated in in July and you got about 100 so you had to start over again with learning new dictators, who might use totally different tests, procedures, and equipment because they came from a different part of the U.S. or world.  I'm not currently working for a teaching hospital, but a large multi-hospital system.   For the most part it isn't that hard, though just like a teaching hospital you get a new batch of dictators every year.

GI procedures are easy and nothing really technical.   Ophthalmology is the same.  You usually only get cataract surgeries and occasionally something else, but most eye surgeries are done in eye centers so you don't get a lot of those. 

Since you have so much experience you probably wouldn't have much trouble, but would have to look up lots of stuff initially. 

Post your resume on the job boards.  There are companies who don't post openings, but will hire from the resumes.

Anyone work for Keystrokes on a teaching
hospital account that started recently?  I've been on the account for about 6 weeks.  I'm struggling on it and I'd just like to talk to another MT on the account. 
My experience, teaching hospitals have a lot of ESL
I'm on a huge teaching hospital with..
eTransPlus. Surprisingly very few ESL dictators. I probably would do better with a smaller hospital but the work is interesting for sure. Good company to work for too, IMO. They do not do VR at all.
Nah, my dad was teaching me a lesson. You know one of those types.
I have learned young how to survive. This may also include having to deal with parents/boss who give you what they think you deserve and in some cases not much. One thing I did learn though in life you may not be able to depend on others, but you need to learn to depend on yourself.
LOVE teaching hospitals, makes you a better MT. NM
Had someone tell me they do a teaching hospital with them, if you like large accts. Might want to
Re Diskriter, anyone work for the PA teaching hospital they have? SM
If so, can you post your opinion here?  Or you may email me if you'd like.  Thanks.
I have 18 years experience with very large, well-known teaching hospitals. (sm)
and I went to TT in October with the big hiring push. Yep, there are lots of ESLs on my account, but no more than I've ever had on any previous account I've worked on. Most of the ESLs I'm getting are quite good, in my opinion. I can handle them. The one doc that gives me the most grief is actually EFL. He's just lazy and mush-mouthed. As for the sound quality, I haven't had a single problem with sound quality.
What I like about my current account(s) is that there are rarely any residents dictating! Oh! What a joy that is! Nothing like residents, whether ESL or EFL. Ugh!
Some people can deal with the ESLs, some can't. All you can do is try. We don't all fit into the same work situations.
I worked on a large teaching hospital account and was
frequently out of work.  KS didn't have the entire account.  I don't know if they had in-house MTs or they used more than one company.  You should have a backup account too, though there may be some  lag time between getting you a backup as they figure out where they can plug you in.   They supposedly are getting several new accounts so surely they should be plenty of work. 
I doubt a huge teaching hospital "wants to
If it were a non-issue, they wouldn't even bother with it, as this is a big hospital, with the highest level trauma center, the highest level neonatal ICN, a well known heart facility, etc. etc. etc.  They are consistently named the best employer in the city.  They a well known and highly respected.  And they make sure things are done correctly and on the up and up and yes, there are rules that they follow, and that is one of them.
P.S. Sounds as though they are hiring for large teaching hospitals from the ad. Any info would be
Sorry. That was eTransPlus. TT had the miserable ESLs and teaching hospital that I couldn't
No. Teaching Hospital account, too many dictators = low line count = little $$$. nm
Teaching hospitals are no picnic! Accents up the wazoo, rotating interns every 3 months, won't ge
Do not outsource to India, outsource a small amount to Phillipines.
