The following was supplied by Med Workshops and we appreciate their input on digital transcription internships. We hope you learn something to help you understand this issue and whether or not you should pursue internship yourself. Med Workshops does provide internships to all their students. Here is the body of the email we received from them- we removed enrollment or pricing information. If you want more information go to www.medworkshops.com . To help the reader, you can also see about internships at Med Line and Meditec. Here is a very helpful digital transcription school review site which lists tuition fees for schools offering internships.
The Value of Doing a Digital Transcription Training Internship
Internships provide an opportunity to experiment and pursue a career that matches your training and personal interests.
What Are The Benefits Doing an Internship?
There are many benefits to completing an internship including the opportunity to experience new skills which match your training, the development of strong teamwork traits, a chance to develop professional networks while enjoying your education, etc.
Most importantly, internships help students become viable, experienced job applicants when seeking employment after graduation. In fact, many employers consider internship as experience in the hiring process and will often employ their own interns as the best fit for full-time positions.
The Education Value Of An Internship
Internship provides the student with the chance to apply and consider facts learned during study. Education experts know that application and reflection is when true learning takes place. Students move from fact-based training to true understanding. A solid framework is built from which the student can draw confidence.
There Are Many Extra Benefits To An Internship
Internships offer students the chance to gain real-world experience. They can also begin to build a professional network from those who can speak to the value of their contributions and act as references. Internship also provides the very best opportunity to gain immediate employment. Real-world experience is one of the main things employers look for when hiring. This experience cannot be obtained by reading about the field you are interested in during class. To gain these skills and apply them, students must do internships.
Imagine what it would be like to learn to ride a bicycle simply by reading about it and watching films of people riding. One can gain a conceptual understanding this way but it’s not until one actually gets on the bike and attempts to ride that success is realized.
The Value of Completing an Internship Prior to a Job Search
Internships are almost mandatory for job search success, regardless of industry or profession. Without internship experience, you’re seen as a risk to companies that are looking to hire graduates that have already put their education to use. Getting your first internship will be the most challenging, because employers will be looking for a school recommendation.
