CanScribe Career College Wins School of Excellence Award From US Based Association

August 12, 2021 GMT

KELOWNA, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 12, 2021--

CanScribe Career College has received the very first School of Excellence Award from the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI).

“We were extremely excited to be nominated for this prestigious award and are so humbled by the announcement of our win.” says Justin Chapman, Vice President of CanScribe Career College. “Our team works extremely hard to provide unparalleled student and graduate support. We were founded as a Medical Transcription college and now offer a multitude of programs, including the most recent launch of our new Medical Transcription/Healthcare Documentation Program. We have always strived for excellence in education and winning the first ever AHDI School of Excellence Award is a testament to our entire team’s efforts to make our programs the best in the world.”

The new MT/HDS program is the result of collaboration from industry and subject matter experts to reflect changes in our healthcare sector. The program includes over 350 new dictations from healthcare professionals, an increase in voice recognition training, new online resources for students, new case studies and the addition of new instructional videos. These updates will help ensure students with all types of learning styles can successfully learn from home and integrate into the job market.


Sheila Guston, CEO of AHDI adds, “AHDI’s School of Excellence Award was developed to recognize an educational member who employs instructors of healthcare documentation for outstanding commitment to the professional development of its students and their success. We are happy to announce that CanScribe Career College is that educational member for 2021 and the first recipient of this new award. CanScribe has been committed to the education and development of its staff, instructors, and students since it was founded in 2002. They have been an AHDI Approved Educational Program since 2006 and a long-time supporter of the mission and vision of AHDI. We congratulate CanScribe on this outstanding achievement and look forward to continued collaboration and success!”

CanScribe Career College is a private career college specializing in online learning. Founded in December of 2002 as one of the first online schools in Canada, it is now a global leader in online learning. CanScribe continues to expand its portfolio, offering online programs in business, healthcare, computer and ESL.


The Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI) was established in 1978 as part of an effort to achieve recognition for the medical transcription profession. When the U.S. Department of Labor granted medical transcriptionists their own job classification in 1999, it was an important milestone to getting the work recognized as much more than clerical. In 2012, AHDI adopted a new title—healthcare documentation specialists—to reflect the broad and extensive responsibilities and services they provide in the creation of accurate and comprehensive patient care records.
