Our medical scribes work closely with our physicians and physician assistants. They shadow our providers during their shifts and assist them with documentation by recording procedures, reviewing charts, and providing other clerical assistance to the providers. Our scribes are exposed to every step in the patient care process and obtain valuable insights into medicine and emergency department operations through provider mentoring. This position increases our scribes' medical vocabulary, teaches them how to take a patient history, provides them an opportunity to learn from medical professionals, and gives them experience speaking with different patients during every shift.

Our medical scribes also play an active role in enhancing patient experience in the emergency department by checking in on patients frequently during their stay to address concerns and comfort needs.
