Scribe America Hiring Medical Scribes

What is a medical scribe?

A Medical Scribe is a revolutionary concept in modern medicine. Traditionally, a physician’s job has been focusing solely on direct patient contact and care. However, the advent of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) created an overload of documentation
and clerical responsibilities that slows physicians
down and pulls them away from actual patient care.
To relieve the documentation overload, physicians
across the country are turning to Medical Scribe
services.
A Medical Scribe is essentially a personal assistant
to the physician; performing documentation in the
EHR, gathering information for the patient’s visit, and
partnering with the physician to deliver the pinnacle
of efficient patient care.

Why become a medical scribe?

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.
A background in Medical Scribing is quickly
becoming the standard for pre-medical experience,
and is suggested by medical school acceptance
committees across the country. The competition to
become a Medical Scribe is intense, and the demand
for Medical Scribe services across the country has
never been higher.
