I have recently completed my Diploma in Healthcare Documentation. This has been an amazing and at times, challenging course but money well spent. The amount of material supplied, the relevance of the entire course content, and support and feedback given by the expert trainers has been exceptional throughout the entire course. Not to mention the new found skills and knowledge developed along the way. Great course, highly recommend it!

I started my course in May 2019 and I must say it has been brilliant. It certainly isn’t a walk in the park but the support staff are amazing. It is very informative, challenging and a great way to get your diploma to be able to work from home. If you put in the hard yards, you will certainly reap the rewards. I highly recommend checking out their courses if you’re looking for a change in direction and a new career.

I have just recently graduated, the support from the trainers was excellent. The course work was manageable around my home and work life. Even though I do not have a medical background I found that the course layout was not complicated but at times it did feel like I was doing a medical degree. On completion of the course I was put in touch with NTS and am now doing a two week trial, the process was easy.

I have just finished my Diploma of Healthcare Documentation with TalentMed and I must say the learning process was gradual and smooth. The course structure is excellent and has all the necessary elements needed to be a successful Medical Transcriptionist. The support from the staff and the TalentMed team was exceptional. I would recommend this course for anyone who is thinking to get into this industry of Medical transcription. The course starts from the scratch and takes you through the intricate level of medical terminologies, pharmaceutical and other related areas and surprisingly keeping it interesting. Thanks TalentMed team for your support.

I finished my course with TalentMed in Nov of last year and found it to be an extremely rewarding experience giving me the foundation I need to pursue a career as a Medical Transcriptionist. The team at TalentMed were amazing to deal with right from the very first phone call I ever made to the last one upon completion of the course. I was then referred to a well known transcription company and I now have secured a position and am employed in this field. This was a worthwhile investment of time and money for me as now I am reaping the rewards. Thank you TalentMed.

I have just graduated from the TalentMed course and I have had the privilege of having the best trainers/mentors I have ever come across in any educational setting. Nothing is too much trouble for them, be it queries, IT, questions about the course and even if you have personal problems. I could not recommend them and the course enough. I am just sorry I have finished and don’t have their support anymore.

Within 1week of graduating the graduation support team had sent me details of a job opportunity, and along with this you receive access to information on how to apply for future jobs and other important topics relating to life after graduation. I can not thank the Talent Med team enough for all the support and confidence boosting I need throughout my course.

I really enjoyed studying for the Diploma and I would recommend to anyone who is interested, as the TalendMed team is understanding, friendly and patient at all times, and you could call them and they are ready to help anytime. They even help out in finding job placements on completion of the course.All the best, TalentMed!

I would recommend Talentmed to anyone wanting to further a career change into transcribing either to work independently or for a company.It certainly was not an easy course, but it was good to follow others through Facebook to know that you weren't the only one that had bumps along the way and that we could all support each other.Cheers to everyone.

I finished this course just before Christmas. Due to health reasons, I needed to find another job, (previously I had my own cleaning business), and being able to have a job that I can work from home would be perfect. I have always had an interest in the medical field, and this would be perfect. I loved the course, I did find it quite challenging at times, sometimes I even thought of giving up, but I didn't and now here I am, a Qualified Medical Transcriptionist :-) The support from Talentmed was great! I am so glad I did this :-)

I recently finished and passed the course and I highly recommend it. It was challenging and exacting and I liked that. I am looking forward to starting transcriptions in the real world as other students who have passed have done. Making a start in a new career is difficult and requires a lot of hard work and I think this course teaches that. If I could pass this course while working full-time I can do anything.

I have a special interest in medicine and come from a Greek background. Therefore I can understand how medical terminology is structured. I qualified in stenography where speed and accuracy is paramount. My journey so far with TalentMed has been memorable. I have been challenged and tested by the course content and assisted by TalentMed trainers every step of the way. Their experience and knowledge is priceless. The main reason I had to embark on this learning journey was that I can work from home once I have qualified. I am eager to learn and attain my diploma in such a specialised and skilled field as a Medical Transcriptionist. Maria Aloneftis

I am in the early stages of my training with Talentmed, but I am so impressed with the content and the presentation. I have completed a previous Diploma via online learning and have found Talentmed's programme so much easier and far more supportive than that I experienced before. Having left a 20 year career in management administration due to circumstances that required me to be full time at home as a carer, I was despairing of ever finding a career that I could both learn and practice from home. Searching through Indeed and Seek led me to Ozescribe as one of the few genuine work from home opportunities, and that led me to Talentmed. I'm so glad it did! I'm truly enjoying the course, and can't wait to finish and send an expression of interest to Ozescribe. I would recommend Talentmed's programme to anyone seeking a genuine work from home career.A new life and career awaits, can't wait to get started!Give it a try! Regards, Karen Schulz.

I'm loving the course so far, it is so well written and easy to follow, even though the medical jargon seems to get harder, I am definitely keeping up and learning! I recommend anyone planning on starting the course to make sure you can schedule study time into your week and stick to it. Although in the advertising they say it can be done in 4 - 6 months, I am finding that unless you have 5 to 6 hours each day to study hard it will take longer. Which is fine, but definitely something to keep in mind when signing up! I have been assured by a rep from a company hiring graduates that there is no shortage of work in this field, now and into the future. Look into it all, call TalentMed with any and all questions, call a few companies who employ MT's and ask even more questions! Then take the plunge and learn all about fascinating medical field!

TalentMed has been nothing but exceptional, professional, and extremely helpful in providing me with the qualification to launch my Medical Transcription career. While my initial feelings of entering the study life again were that of uncertainty, TalentMed provided me with unbelievable amounts of support and resources to ease my hesitancy. I was not only guided from start to finish of my course, but the staff at TalentMed went on to help me secure a position in the industry. TalentMed ensures the student receives great value for money as well as a high standard results from all the hard work invested. I am hugely thankful for choosing to study with TalentMed.

I am SO excited about undertaking this course. I am only in the early stages of the modules but it is extremely well organised and presented. Every aspect of the computer is looked at, which is very important when you start doing the transcribing work later on. I am a retired lady and want to earn some cash to compliment my pension as I just love to spend money. Working from home will be a bonus also. I have every faith in TalentMed assisting me to get work when I finish the course, and I know from past similar work I have done that it is important to be dedicated, accurate and efficient at using the sources available to complete the work in a professional manner. Merry Christmas to everyone. Vicki (Melbourne)

I have studied a few different courses over my time, I have enrolled in some online courses as well. I was truly skeptical about enrolling in another online course because some of the courses that I had previously enrolled with did not come up to my expectations. I found them to be extremely difficult due to the absence of resources and the one off cost basically ran much higher due to myself having to buy resources outside, that cost me a fair amount. I, with some hesitation, had enrolled with Talent Med and I haven't looked back. I am truly happy (over the moon) with the course. The Student Support is impeccable as well as the course overall. I have recommended this course to some friends, one of which is truly interested in enrolling. I love the course, I feel a great amount of satisfaction when finishing each unit/block. I am very excited and cant wait to finish it. Medical Transcription and Editing has really made a difference in my life due to gaining knowledge in the medical field as well as the body personally.

The staff at TalentMed have been incredibly understanding and helpful and I couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you TalentMed.

At 61 I thought I'd be too old to do this course. I find age is no barrier. The course is comprehensive, instructive, and surprisingly enjoyable to do. I would advise anyone, no matter your age, contemplating undertaking Medical Transcription with TalentMed to go for it. I've learned things about the body that are amazing, curious, astounding and downright funny. I enjoy the little games along the way and the humor within the lessons - all carefully crafted for the mind to recall easily - thus we learn. Should I be able to work in this industry after graduation I will be delighted. Should things not fall my way, I will have spent my money wisely and enjoyed the experience. Thank you TalentMed.

Having been on workcover for over three years with PTSD, I wanted to find something that I could work from home in a safe environment. I started this course almost a year ago, thanks to my workcover agent and although I am still not finished and have had an extension approved, I am getting better and better every day and this course is helping me immensely with my recovery. The step-by-step, page-by-page way this course is structured, helps me set and achieve goals and eventually become a well respected transcriber/editor.

I completed the TalentMed Medical Transcription course in April this year, but shortly afterwards I went with my husband to live in the WA outback. Because of the challenging situation there I was not able to start working in medical transcription. I am currently living back in Melbourne and finishing the business units that go with the course. I hope to start employment next year. I enjoyed doing the course and the support was excellent. The course is very comprehensive and it is easy to progress through each module. Yes, towards the end of the course it was quite challenging and required perseverance, but I know this was necessary preparation for the job. Because I am past retirement age it is becoming harder for me to find employment, so I decided that working from home would be ideal for me. Being able to choose my own hours is another plus. I believe there is a great need for medical transcriptionists, so I do not expect that it will be difficult to find work. I would encourage anyone who likes the idea of working from home, has a good grasp of the English language and some computer and typing skills to do this course.

Starting my online Diploma of Healthcare Documentation through Talentmed recently, I was unsure if the quality would be as good as learning in a classroom setting. But I was surprised and pleased to discover that the course is extremely thorough, informative and detailed. Just like any higher education course, it requires dedication and commitment. Everyday I'm learning new things about subjects I thought I was knowledgable about! Highly recommended for any person looking to learn about the Medical Transcription Industry and healthcare documentation.

I felt great trepidation when I first started this course as to whether it was the right decision - it's such a lot of money if you're not sure it's going to work out. However, I have now been working for Ozescribe since May 2015 after completing my course. Yes, it is a very comprehensive course and not for the fainthearted. It's not for everyone and sometimes it will seem like you're never going to get there but you will!. Just keep at it. The course really does provide you with the best tuition and knowledge you will need in your workplace. The team at TalentMed are terrific too and so supportive. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to follow a career in medical transcription especially now that you can get government funding. I missed out on that but still feel it was money well spent.

So far the site is easy to use, and I'm learning a lot of information for the job I'm training to get into.
Really enjoying this course and now that I've done the midterm I'm really looking forward of getting into the transcription part of it. :)

Being a stay at home mother to two young boys I really wanted to further my career skills. Having been in the legal industry for many years I wanted to challenge myself, doing this Diploma online has enabled me to complete at my own pace or the children's pace and I am really enjoying learning all the new medical terminology. I am looking forward to completion and embarking on my new career change. TalentMed has made everything easy from the start and navigating around online was super easy. I am glad I made the decision to go ahead with the Diploma and make use of the Victorian Government funding available.

I love the flexibility of being able to work and study at the same time. So far, my favourite subject has been the nervous system.

I'm a former nurse of 20 years who gave it up to have my family. Now my youngest is in school, I'm starting a new career. I'm thoroughly enjoying the course - it reminds me that I still have a brain. Not at all easy, which makes it worthwhile.

I was quite unsure what to expect as I embarked on my first online course in Medical Transcription. Studying was not something I was excited about jumping into, but I am extremely glad that I made that decision. The customer service people at TalentMed eased my apprehension by answering all my questions and guiding me through the process of working out whether this was the right direction for me. Now that I am on the 'home-stretch' of the course, I can happily testify to the great service I have received. TalentMed offers a fantastic course with extremely comprehensive content in order to prepare students enter the Medical Transcription workforce. TalentMed have been very flexible and accommodating to ensure that I get the most out of the course. TalentMed has offered unbeatable support whenever needed in a prompt and effective manner. The course is challenging... yes! But it is certainly well worth it!

To be able to study from home and ultimately work from home was a contributing factor in my decision to enrol. The course is flexible, I can study at my own pace and it is fascinating as well as challenging to learn about medical terms and the medical world in general.

It is very important to me that I am able to work from home with flexible hours. I am finding it fascinating to learn more about the medical world and I am enjoying the way the course slowly builds upon itself. Although the idea of all those body systems, illnesses, symptoms and drugs is a little overwhelming I am sure that by the end of it I will definitely have the tools to pursue my chosen career.

The Dual Diploma of Practice Management and Healthcare Documentation includes five electives from TalentMed’s nationally accredited Diploma of Healthcare Documentation, and combines them with the industry-endorsed curriculum of the Diploma of Practice Management.

The Dual Diploma of Practice Management and Healthcare Documentation has been designed to meet the growing demand of the Australian healthcare sector, and to help you acquire multiple skills as a healthcare professional, as you transition into the competitive workforce after completing the course.

The Dual Diploma allows multiple career options within the healthcare industry, for you to choose from.

Once qualified, you can choose to work as a Practice Manager and an in-house Medical Transcriptionist at the healthcare practice that you manage.

Alternatively, you may like to work as a Medical Transcriptionist from home, or choose to become a leader in the workplace as a Practice Manager.

Another option could be to work as a Practice Manager full-time, then choose your own hours to work from home independently as a Medical Transcriptionist, to earn additional income when you want.

If you are a stay-at-home-parent, you can utilise this qualification to work from home as a Medical Transcriptionist, then later rejoin the workforce as a Practice Manager. Conversely, you may decide to work full time as a Practice Manager now, and then to work from home as a Medical Transcriptionist when you are preparing to retire.

With the healthcare industry projecting an impressive job growth rate of 16.4% over the next 5 years as the Australian population expands and ages, the demand for Practice Managers and Medical Transcriptionists are on the rise.
TalentMed’s Dual Diploma of Healthcare Documentation and Practice Management is nationally recognised and listed under the Australian Qualifications Framework.

A TalentMed education gives employers confidence that you have the practical experience and industry skills to easily transition into the workplace. Because of this, TalentMed graduates have a high success rate in finding work soon after completing the course.

  • evidence of successful completion of an Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) Certificate IV or higher qualification (where the language of instruction is English).

If you do not have an Australian year 12 Certificate or have not successfully completed an AQF Certificate IV or higher qualification, we will send you login details to complete a quick Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) pre-assessment to confirm your suitability for the course. Students must demonstrate Exit Level 3 (or higher) competency in both reading and numeracy.

Minimum online learning competency

This course is delivered online. As such, entry to the course requires you to be proficient with operating a personal computer. You will be specifically asked about your online learning competency as part of your pre-training review to evaluate your suitability for the course.

Minimum age

Minimum age of 16 years. If you are under 18 your enrolment form must be signed by a parent or guardian.

English language requirements

This course requires you to read, write and understand the english language. As such, entry to the course requires English proficiency at a year 10 level or equivalency such as a NRT qualification at the Certificate II level or higher, or two years industry experience in a role that requires the use of both written and verbal communication.

As per normal VET assessment procedures, especially with regard to pre-training assessments, the assessment should only be initially administered once. In order for the learner and TalentMed to implement any targeted LLN support and to have sufficient time for the learner to improve their LLN skills to the required level, a minimum period of no less than three months is required between undertaking further assessments using the approved tool. It may take longer than this, but at least three months should provide enough time for progress to be made and improvement to be able to be demonstrated.

TalentMed believes that this is not about ‘passing the test’, as can be the practice in some situations, and re-sitting the test a number of times until the learner eventually passes. This is not the purpose of undertaking this assessment for course suitability purposes. The purpose of the LLN test is to assess whether the learner has sufficient skills to potentially succeed in undertaking a Diploma level qualification or higher. Allowing learners to keep re-sitting until they pass would not be a fair or valid process. It is TalentMed’s goal to provide targeted LLN support and to allow the learner to have sufficient time to improve their LLN skills to the required level.

At the end of the day, this requirement is aimed at protecting your learning needs and ensuring the course is suitable for your success.
