About Us

The Academy of Medical Professions is a licensed Proprietary School certified in Maine. This school began in 1996 in Topsham, Maine as Transcription Associates, Inc. School of Medical Transcription and is still certified by the Maine State Department of Education and has since established ourselves with the Adult Education Systems in Maine with great success. We now offer classes through SMCC.

We are proud to offer complete correspondence/online courses with all our lectures provided through streaming audio or watch our recorded live classes at your leisure.  An instructor is assigned to you for assistance through the program as well as grading of papers and assigning work. This allows those students who cannot attend classes to get the feel of the classroom participation.

We have achieved a great success  in placing our graduates. Although we do not guarantee jobs, we will teach how to get them, where they are, what you can expect for pay, what your resume should look like, and will forward e-mails and phone calls to you as we hear of jobs.
You can always feel free to contact our company for any help or guidance.
