Medical Transcription Wiki


The Medical Transcription Desk (MT Desk) Style Guide and Reference is a style guide for medical transcriptionists, healthcare documentation specialists and health information managers. On completion, this wiki style guide will be compatible with the current accepted medical transcription style guide but will be dynamically updated, incorporate the most recent information, pictures and illustrations, and comments from the medical transcription and health information community.

Not sure how it works? Go to How to use the MT Desk Style Guide and Reference. Frequently asked questions and their answers can be found in the MT Desk Announcements forum, so please read the posts there if you have questions.
