Medical Scribe for Scribe America in Vienna, WV
(with opportunities in other locations) The job is posted in Handshake, job #3547214.
A medical scribe is a revolutionary concept in modern medicine! A medical scribe is essentially a personal assistant to the physician; performing documentation in the electronic health records system (EHR), gathering information for the patient’s visit, and partnering with the physician to deliver the pinnacle of efficient patient care.
For someone interested in medicine, whether it is a personal interest, or part of a career goal to become a physician or physician assistant, the chance to become a medical scribe is unlike any other opportunity available. It offers exciting one-on-one collaboration with a physician, and is unprecedented in its level of exposure to real medicine in practice.
Our emergency department scribe positions work well with college students who are seeking 2 shifts per week. Typing speed required is 40-50 wpm. There are opportunities to cross-train or transfer to outpatient specialty clinics during your gap year (Cumberland: neuro-spine center; Hagerstown: family medicine, women’s health; Martinsburg: oncology).
We, as a company, offer letters of recommendation and discounted programs regarding medical school interview prep. It is also noted that often physicians and mid-level providers can assist with preparation for med/PA school by writing letters of recommendation and giving insight into the interview process. This is not guaranteed for every scribe - it helps to build relationships with the providers before asking them for these benefits.
“Being a scribe is a perfect job for anyone wanting to pursue a career in medicine. The job is not only a tremendous learning experience, but you’re actually making a difference by assisting the doctors to be more efficient so they can focus more on the quality of care for their patients.” – Amy Hogan, 2010
