OTSI Medical Transcription Institute


To address the shortage of qualified medical transcriptionists in a growing industry in the Philippines, we launched OTSI Medical Transcription Institute. The school, conveniently located in Las Pin(as City, Metro Manila, has two lecture rooms, two computer-laboratories equipped with the state-of-the-art  IT software, and a well-stacked library containing medical and other reference books covering a wide range of topics.  Our classes are conducted by medical doctors, MT editors and computer expert. At peak load, we can have two classes per shift of four hours each, making a maximum student load of 180 per day on three shifts.   

OTSI Medical Transcription Institute is accredited by TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) with registration No. 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-PGMA Finishing Course for Medical Transcription.

Our schoolís vision is to provide the medical transcription industry with the best MTís 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 medical transcription schools in the Philippines, and the basic course structure provided by TESDA.


  • Short 6-month course
  • Flexible schedules
  • Easy payments

The Medical Transcription industry is huge.
Estimated at US$13 billion in 2004, it is one of the fastest growing new industries today with average growth of 10% a year. Yet, there is an extreme shortage of medical transcriptionists.  Philippines 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.
