Welcome Military Spouses!
MISSION: Medical Transcription
The Career That Moves with You!
The ideal career for military spouses
Many MTs work from their homes as independent contractors, subcontractors, or home-based employees. Because many employers and contractors receive and submit work over the Internet, an MT can live in Texas, work for a company based in Philadelphia, and transcribe for a hospital in Alaska. If you currently live in North Carolina but your spouse is being re-stationed in Washington, you can take your job with you. To learn more about medical transcription, please visit our Career in MT page.
Join AHDI and the New Professionals Alliance
Becoming a member of AHDI will provide military spouses with access to resources, information, events, and services that empower them to make informed choices about a career in medical transcription, and help ensure successful career outcomes. Together, we work to advance the profession through legislative advocacy, standard-setting, and professional development.
The New Professionals Alliance, a special interest group within AHDI, focuses on providing essential resources, networking, and career-building tools for up-and-coming professionals, those new to the field, and emerging leaders. AHDI Members joining the alliance will be able to build personal and professional connections via the Member’s Only Google Group, participate in the topics of the week discussions, and gain access to online events and resources to help build a career as a healthcare documentation professional.
Funding resources for military spouse education
Several of the AHDI-approved educational programs accept federal Pell Grants, Sallie Mae Educational Loans, VA funds and GI Bills, as well as offer payment plans and military spouse discounts. In addition, there are some community-based programs providing support to military personnel from those communities.
