Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
~ Theodore Roosevelt

Acusis is one such place that offers you both the opportunity to work hard as well as the recognition that comes with doing so. It has been a very eventful 2-1/2 years for me here at Acusis, and I have enjoyed every moment of it. It can be very trying for someone who doesn’t have the foggiest idea of either medicine or science to venture into Medical Transcription, but curiosity prodded me on and I have much to thank for today.


I work with Acusis as a QA, and when I was given the opportunity to write the CMT exam, the initial feeling was something akin to nervous excitement. I knew I had to write the CMT exam, what I did not know was that I would clear it. I knew a lot of people were sure of me, what I did not know was to trust in their belief.

I had all the help I could have asked for – study material, the time to prepare, a prep test, pep talks, et al. Once I cleared it, the excitement mounted, it was not as tough-as-nails as was the widespread notion.

That is what learning is. You suddenly understand what you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way.
~ Doris Lessing

This quote, in essence, adequately sums up the CMT exam – time to revisit the old grammar book and time to pay heed to all those files transcribed and edited, for far more than knowledge and learning, it is the practical aspect of day-to-day transcription and editing that helps in the long haul.

I would like to sum up my words with - “Acusis throws you the opportunity, it is up to you to seize it,” and as an afterthought – it takes some foresight to recognize that opportunity, and a fair amount of faith to seize it.
