ScribeAmerica Albany, NY Career Fair

Albany, NY - Posted on: Tuesday 06/21/16


ScribeAmerica is currently looking to recruit medical scribes to work one on one with board certified emergency physicians and physician assistants assisting with documentation for each patient evaluated by the health care provider in an ER, clinic or medical office. It is an exceptional opportunity for anyone interested in medicine to gain first-hand experience following a physician or physician's assistant. The role of a scribe is to closely collaborate with their assigned provider by documenting the history of each patient evaluated, the provider’s physical examination, the results of laboratory/radiological studies ordered, and the eventual diagnosis and disposition. Becoming a scribe provides first rate exposure to medical terminology, disease processes, emergency procedures, medications, and the medical decision making process performed by providers. 

This job is not for everyone; the complexity of the material and fast-paced environment necessitate that only the sharpest and most motivated candidates 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 1 full year. 

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.
