Some positions do not even have training plans. Most of training will be learn as you go.
PhysAssist Scribes Inc. provides training for the job. It's often one month of online training and then one month of training at the hospital - real time. It's very beneficial and really helps you learn quickly. It's all free as well.
The training they make you undergo is supremely different than on the job training.
The online training is very dissimilar from the actual hospital work. Most of it has to be unlearned and retrained while on the job.
Best thing is that trainers are always there to help you and encourage you to do your best. Fast paced and intensive training because being a scribe is a big responsibility as physicians rely on you to transcribe accurately.
Okay, though it was all very last-minute.
5 days of online training prior to onsite work. About 5 shifts of onsite training.
The job training is probably one of the best in terms of how well they prepare you. It is long 5-day training at corporate.
At first it was based in Chicago for my team. I found it very stressful but it did well in preparation. Their online LMS was quite awful. It's based on statistical data and the pass rates are determined by the demand for scribes nationwide. So if they need a lot of scribes in an area, applicants from that area pass no matter what. There's no training support for non-native english speakers so they start with almost no professional English skill.
Extensive time is put into Job Training. We have an entire department focused on training.
