About Medical Transcription Careers in Kentucky

Medical transcriptionists tend to be more in demand around the larger cities of Elizabethtown and Louisville in the state of Kentucky. Other larger cities such as Lexington and Bowling Green also offer several opportunities for medical transcriptionists. In contrast, smaller cities, with smaller hospitals, do not employ high levels of staff and therefore do not present the job opportunities afforded by the larger cities. Average salaries for medical transcriptionists in the state of Kentucky range from starting salaries of $18,000 per year in smaller cities and hospitals to $38,000 per year in larger demographic areas. Medical transcriptionists work in hospitals, private offices and clinics and through private transcription firms throughout the state of Kentucky.

Financial Aid in Kentucky

Most campuses across the state of Kentucky offer some sort of financial aide programs to qualifying students. Resources range from Federal Pell Grants, statewide scholarship programs, individual school scholarships and student loans. Education grants are also available to military personnel desiring to further their education. While most online universities and colleges do not accept scholarships, most of them do accept federal and state grants and have student loan programs. Online programs may also offer monthly payment programs in order for you to pay for your classes. Some employers across the state also offer reimbursement to their employees who choose to further their education. Non-US Citizens living legally in the state of Kentucky may also be able to obtain financial aid from their home country and need to check with their country’s embassy or ministry of education to find out if this financial aide is available to them.
