ScribeAmerica Now Hiring Students/Alumni As Medical Scribes

Our company is currently looking to recruit students to work as Medical Scribes in Richmond, VA.  The scribe will work side by side with physicians assisting with documentation for each patient evaluated by the doctor.  It is an exceptional opportunity for any student interested in medicine to gain first-hand experience following a physician.

The role of a scribe is to closely collaborate with their assigned physician by documenting the history of each patient evaluated, the doctor’s 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.

This job is not for everyone; the complexity of the material and fast-paced environment necessitate that only the sharpest and most motivated students succeed as a scribe.  We are looking for dependable and hard working employees that have a desire for an eventual career in medicine, or are 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.

Paid classroom & clinical training is provided. The training is extensive and intense. Each employee will have multiple training sessions both in the classroom and the emergency department during which we teach the flow of the emergency room, extensive medical terminology, and appropriate medical/legal documentation.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity which has demonstrated itself to be excellent experience for students preparing for careers in medicine.  Our past employees that excelled as scribes have gone on to receive outstanding evaluations in their clinical years and residencies.

Cancer Research Opportunity Summer 2019

VCU Biology received the following communication:

We invite your best students to apply for our NIH/NCI-funded (5 R25CA023944-35) Pediatric Oncology Education (POE) Program. The program offers a unique opportunity for pre-doctoral students preparing for careers in the biomedical sciences, medicine, and pharmacy to gain biomedical and oncology research experience. Students participate in basic or clinical oncology research, research and clinical conferences, and a core lecture series designed specifically for them. All participants make a PowerPoint presentation on their research project and submit a report on their research project written in the style of a journal in which their faculty mentor publishes.

A primary goal of the POE program is to encourage students to pursue a career in cancer research. Thus, we are particularly interested in highly qualified students with a serious career interest in cancer research, either as a clinical scientist or laboratory-based research scientist. The St. Jude Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences was recently established to offer training in leading-edge scientific fields paired with unique mentoring in the St. Jude clinical experience. Highly motivated POE students would have opportunities to join the third class of the Graduate School in August, 2019.

All POE program applicants must have research experience at the time they apply. The POE 2018 class average undergraduate GPA was 3.85. Our POE 2018 class of 55 students from 44 schools in 25 states were selected from over 500 applicants. POEs must be United States citizens, non-citizen nationals, or possess a visa permitting permanent residence in the United States (required by the funding agency). All must have completed at least their college sophomore year by the time they participate. POE medical students spend a minimum of 10 weeks in the program. The minimum tenure requirement for all others is 11 weeks. All POE applicants must have an undergraduate GPA of at least 3.40 (on a 4.0 scale) in math and science (biology, chemistry, and physics) and at least a 3.40 overall. The subsistence allowance will be $400/per week for undergraduates, and $480/week for all others. Fully furnished group housing will be provided at no cost for non- local participants.

The POE home page contains links to the program application. The deadline for receipt of all 2019 application materials is February 1, 2019. Early application is highly recommended, since completed applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Members of under-represented ethnic minority groups and women are particularly encouraged to apply, since one of our major long-term program goals is to increase the diversity of persons engaged in oncology research and practice.
