Do it for the experience, not the money

ER Scribe (Current Employee)
Fairfield, CA

I have been working at Scribe America part-time for less than a year

ProsAmazing premed experience. Will definitely put you ahead of the curve in med school and beyond.
- work alongside 1 physician each shift
- learn how to document medical decision making, Ddx, medical test ordering, interpretation, prescription writing, after care instructions, etc.
- witness all patient scenarios confronting healthcare workers
- work schedule is pretty flexible

ConsYou have to do this job for the experience and long term benefits - and definitely NOT for the money because they pay minimum wage. But in their defense my understanding is that the physicians pay for the scribes out of their own pocket, which explains why the salary is so low.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
