    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'm now in physician assistant school. Working as a medical scribe exposed me to a lot more than most of my classmates who were cnas or phlebotomist prior to PA school.
    Working with many different docs helps you develop good documentation skills and get multiple perspectives on patient care.

    Cons

    The job just doesn't pay enough

    Advice to Management

    Have someone besides just another scribe actually be involved in the direction of the individual sites.

    Pros

    -You will learn a ton
    -some doctors really like taking scribes under their wing and teaching
    -will gain confidence in the medical setting
    -looks great on a resume if you're trying to go to medical school

    Cons

    -lousy pay for what you're expected to do
    -often go above and beyond what your job description is, at one hospital we were setting up the admission calls for docs
    -training is a joke, you get absolutely thrown to the wolves. The first solo shifts are incredibly stressful, especially if you're sensitive to doctors yelling
    -people skip shifts all the time, if you have a hard time saying no you will find yourself working everyday
    -very little input from upper management.
    -don't make this your full time job, you'll go crazy

    Advice to Management

    train your employees better. Luckily I already had a bit of a medical background when I started, but we were in no way prepared to deal with what was given to usl.

    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Scribes are useful to physicians, pre-med students gain valuable experience and knowledge in the medical field

    Cons

    Upper management totally disconnected from business, Opinions were terminable offenses, Hires were based on friendships instead of skill at the top level, Recruiting was totally absent in a company based solely on its ability to staff medical scribes, No employee appreciation at any level, Money hungry execs never said no to new business at the expense of everything else, Incompetent people were let off the hook as the hard workers absorbed more and more, Scribes at all sites were left on an island without oversight by their corporate managers

    Advice to Management

    Too late now... the company already folded as unsustainable growth led to inevitable implosion

    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems part-time

    Pros

    Good training to prepare you for getting out into the ER, the docs at the methodist Richardson hospitals are great to work with. Awesome for anyone seeking good medical experience and just pocket money. They are really good with working with your sched if you want to be part time as well.

    Cons

    As with any scribe job it's more about the experience than the pay...
