    I am physician/surgical resident who wants to spend my free time on online work. I can help you with your projects especially if they are of the following categories: 1. Medical/General transcription -- My familiarity with the medical jargon, coupled with my 70 words/minute typing speed, allows me to produce accurate transcriptions in the least amount of time possible. 2. Data mining/Data entry -- I can do a wide variety of data entry work such as simple typing jobs, copy-paste work, PDF conversion, internet research, data mining, and even complex MS Excel data handling that involves formulas and VBA codes. 3. Medical writing/editing/proofreading -- With the knowledge and skills that I have as a healthcare professional, and with my fluency in written and conversational English, I wish to deliver high-quality written output in the form of books, research papers, health articles, etc.
