There were upsides and downsides to working as an emergency department scribe but I did enjoy most of my time there. A good shift and bad shift are completely dependent on the attending that you are paired up with. Some are angels, and some are very strict with little respect for the work that you do. Overall, the process is fairly simple and easy to learn. Most attendings are very understanding and know that most of us are here to learn, not write notes. While you don't need to go into rooms for procedures, there are some doctors who value learning so much that they make you stand in the room without your laptop just as a learning opportunity. You will learn a lot being a scribe. When there are very few patients, on a relatively slow day, you basically have free time to do whatever (I usually bring my ipad to do HW or read). I was very fortunate enough to be placed with a great team with a great manager that was super understanding about scheduling, time commitments, and emergencies.
The hours can be very difficult. Some attendings are very anal. If you work in peds, get ready to have to deal with alot of parents. Hours range from 8, 10, 12 hr shifts. Sometimes, time goes by very slowly. You don't really get to know other scribes so theres a bit of a lack of teamwork, but i was lucky to have really nice coworkers.1

Working with different levels in the medical feild Learning vocabulary Learning to work in fast paced environments Working closely with surgeons and PA's
Long hours of standing Keeping up with fast paced environment can be difficult Having to make up for others who didn't show up for a shift Having to be in 2 places at the same time when different providers require you at the same time

nothing other than being able to get clinical hours that is flexible enough for a student
these people need to get another interview from the managers at your actual position. my manager didn't like me from the moment they met me so ever since then all my small mistakes or weird faces at work were found with malicious intent. Never stopped talking about how they hated new people; in front of the new people... My managers one sided beef to find a flaw in my and break me so that theyre not over staffed, cost me a lot in my career. doctors treat you with no respect, was literally yelled at by one for asking him to repeat something. if they tell you that a convo is off the record, no its not.1

Getting to experience the many procedures and exciting events of the ER first hand. Getting to work side by side with providers and learn from them. Constantly getting to see new and interesting things.
No benefits, no PTO, no sick time, not vacation days, no "calling off", minimum wage pay. Be prepared to be overworked, underpaid, and undervalued by your own company.

I could be placed at two different locations, which expanded the client population I could see. Worked with doctors, nurse practitioners, and PAs. NPs and PAs had 12 hour shifts
Frequent schedule changes, low pay

Get to really see what the medical field is like especially through the doctor's eyes and thoughts
-given about 1 week of floor training and then tested on like four years of medical school terminology. -They hire anyone that is able to breath and type. From this oversupply of medical scribes, they can just let anyone go however they FEEL. -they literally hire the whole biology course students (avg 200 Students at a university). -After online training, they make you wait for a whole month without pay to start 1 week of floor training. -Extreme turnover rate -Some doctors like to start arguments that is totally unnecessary. -No benefits as well such as health insurance(kind of ironic) and etc.2
