To address the shortage of qualified medical transcriptionists in a growing industry in the Philippines, we launched OTSI Medical Transcription Institute in August 2006. The school, located in Las Pinas City, Metro Manila, is a short walking distance away from SM Southmall. Our classes are conducted by physicians, MT editors, English professors, and computer experts.
OTSI Medical Transcription Institute is accredited by TESDA with WTR# 0613032121. TESDA is the government regulatory body for technical and vocational-training learning centers. We are also in partnership with the government in providing training to qualified MT scholars through the TESDA.
Our vision is to provide the medical transcription industry with the best MTs in the Philippines. To achieve this, we have designed a special course curriculum that combines our first-hand knowledge of the business at OTSI Baguio and the industry, the experiences of other MT schools in the Philippines, and the basic course structure provided by TESDA.
To date, more than 90% of our graduates are already gainfully employed — or self employed, home-based home — here and abroad.
While waiting for employment or papers for going abroad, take our special short-term Medical Transcription course and have an alternative career for immediate employment after only 5 weeks! Special short Medical Allied course for nursing graduates and graduates of allied medical courses. After 5 months for regular students. (In-house OJT offered.)
The Medical Transcription industry is huge. Estimated at US$17 billion today, it is currently one of the fastest growing new industries with an average growth of 10% a year. Yet, there is an extreme shortage of medical transcriptionists. The Philippine Daily Inquirer recently reported that the country needs around 150,000 new MTs every year for the next five years.
The global thrust is to outsource the job overseas due to lower operating costs. The Philippines is a country of choice of U.S. physicians because of our English proficiency, exposure to American culture and reasonable labor wages.
Our education program will develop your skills and prepare you for the job. Once you have earned your TESDA registered certificate, you can apply for a job as an MT in the Philippines, USA and other countries like Canada, Australia, England, Pakistan, India, etc. You may also work at home with your own clients! Your training prepares you to also become a legal transcriptionist, office encoder, and many others, here and abroad.
