Medical Scribe

Organization

Scribe America

Description

The central role of the Medical Scribe is to relieve the physician of clerical or secretarial duties, thus allowing the physician to focus more directly on clinical care. The scribe is an unlicensed person and exclusively non-clinical. They do not touch patients and do not engage in any type of patient care. A scribe’s role is limited to documentation and efficiency management for the physician. Scribes closely collaborate with their assigned provider by documenting the history of each patient evaluated, the providers physical examination, the results of laboratory/radiological studies ordered, and the eventual diagnosis and disposition. Becoming a scribe provides the student with first rate exposure to medical terminology, disease processes, emergency procedures, medications, and the medical decision making process performed by the physicians.

Requirements

Dependable and hard working with a desire for an eventual career in medicine, or interested in learning more about careers in medicine. There are multiple shifts, both day and night and each shift consists of following a single physician, usually lasting 8-12 hours. It is expected that each scribe can commit to 2 shifts per week for at least 2 years.
