OTSI School

To address the shortage of qualified medical transcriptionists in a growing industry in the Philippines, we launched OTSI School in August 2006. It was put up to help students, who wish to have a transcription career, be job-ready upon graduation. Based on our experience in OTSI Baguio as a transcription company, successful applicants still had to be trained in-house to take on the job. We prepare aspiring transcriptionists to take on transcription jobs competently on day one.

The Transcription industry is huge!

Estimated at more than US$20 billion today, medical transcription is currently one of the fastest growing industries with an average growth of 10% a year. Yet, there is an extreme shortage of transcriptionists. According to leading market research company Technavio, the global medical transcription market will grow by USD 16.64 billion during 2020-2024.

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, hospitals, and clinics because of our English proficiency, exposure to American culture, and reasonable labor wages. Legal and General Transcription are growing just as fast. If you want to go that route, our MT graduates can easily take on LT or GT jobs.
