Why be a Medical Scribe? Making a Difference What We Expect How to Apply FAQ
Join ScribeAmerica
A Medical Scribe is a revolutionary concept in modern medicine. Traditionally, a physician's job has focused 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.

“Working as a scribe was one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had and it gave me a tremendous advantage during medical school. I felt very strong in my knowledge of medical terminology as well as performing a history and physical exam. I learned how to become a part of the health care team, which eased my transition into the clinical years of medical school. The people I worked with were amazing and it just made me all the more excited to begin my medical education. In fact, I loved my experience as a scribe so much, that I plan to make Emergency Medicine my career!”
Christian Maloschik, Temple SOM 2009
“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 your 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 Quinnipiac University, CT 2010
“Working as a scribe was the single most reassuring experience I had prior to starting medical school and that a career in medicine was the right path for me. The physicians with whom I worked with at Tri-City were all eager mentors who encouraged my pursuit of medicine and were open to answering my questions and concerns about the profession. As a scribe I accumulated hundreds of hours of direct patient care experience, setting me far ahead of my medical school peers regarding patient interviewing skills. Now, having left ScribeAmerica and having started medical school, I have even greater admiration and appreciation for all that I learned, especially for the excitement this job instilled in me about my future career in medicine.”
Lauren Davie, Tufts Medical College 2011
“Scribe America is a great program that prepared me in many ways for medical school. Working side by side with doctors in the emergency room gave me an incredible real-life experience to apply to all the classes I am taking now. Diagnosing is intimately related to recognizing patterns in patient symptoms and while working with Scribe America I was able to watch the physicians think their way through patient cases and absorb countless amounts of information. Having also volunteered in hospitals and taken part in research prior to entering medical school, I would say that my time with Scribe America was the most influential factor in giving me confidence in my decision to pursue a career in medicine. The one-on-one experience with physicians, the variety of patient cases and symptoms, the introduction to medical diagnostic techniques, and the vast amounts of medical terminology have all been invaluable to my current student status besides that I thoroughly enjoyed coming to work every day. I have and will continue to recommend Scribe America to any person contemplating medical school with a desire to learn and work hard.”
Kim Riegel, Loma Linda SOM 2011
