What is a Scribe? Joining ScribeAmerica's team as a Scribe will be one of the most impactful and rewarding experiences of your life. A Scribe is on the "front-line" of healthcare, serving as an integral member of the care team and acting as physician's personal efficiency partner. While a Scribe does not perform clinical work (e.g., does not touch patients, does not practice medicine), s/he is completely immersed in the healthcare ecosystem by standing elbow-to-elbow with a physician or nurses for 8+ hours each day. It's a once-in-a-lifetime professional experience that should not be missed by anyone who is considering a career in healthcare!At every shift, a Scribe works side by side with board-certified physicians to perform a variety of tasks: document patient encounters, locate lab/radiology results or prior medical records, and/or assist the physician with any number of his/her non-clinical responsibilities. A Scribe truly witnesses all of the action close up and first-hand: you will see what actually happens in the fast-paced environment of an emergency department, observe a wide variety of cases from trauma to pediatrics to the elderly, and develop lasting relationships with your fellow Scribes and your partnering physicians. Whether it's helping you gain entrance into medical/nursing school, giving you priceless advice and insight, or just leading by example as a consummate professional, your partnering physician will profoundly affect your future as a healthcare professional. Your Scribe experience-the people you meet, the relationships you develop, the encounters you witness- will change your life! Don't wait, apply to be a Scribe today!
