This opportunity is a Work from Home position from STU.  South Transcription Unlimi+ed (STU) is a Business Process Outsourcing company in Manila, Philippines. STU was found in 2004 by pioneers in the Philippine medical transcription industry. We initially specialized in Medical Transcription service to US hospitals and clinics.

They currently provide the free training to be conducted at their office at 2F Patio Jacinto Molino Road, Molino 3, Bacoor City, Cavite.  You can contact them at (046)431-4754 or 0917-853-1905.  This is an awesome opportunity since these programs can cost $1,000 (this and all included prices as of 2010).

You might be wondering why the training needs to be conducted in the office, this is because there are laboratories to be used in the training.  After you have been to their medical transcription training, you will have to work at their office for some time to make sure you are equipped with all the knowledge you need when you work at home. 

South Transcription Unlimited or STU not only cater in Medical Transcription, they also cater general transcription.  With this, you don’t need to work at their office right after the training.  This is a limited offer though since most of their clients are in the medical field.  This could perfect if you are also looking for a part time job.

Currently they cater to wider range services such as Pharmaceutical, Legal, IT, Marketing, and Service industries.  It would be nice if they have some kind of facebook account so that if they need transcriptionists on those fields, you will be notified.

  • Preferably college level but high school graduates may also apply
  • Good English writing and grammar skills
