    Pros

    Good experience if you would like to go to medical school

    Cons

    The people I worked with were very unorganized. It took approximately half a year just to finish training. The trainers were not friendly and did not care for you. Overall, they made it a bad experience.
    -Very low pay

    I have been working at Scribe America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Acting as a medical scribe gives you direct contact with the medical field and allows you to learn from the doctors you work with. I work in the emergency department and I have seen everything from a cold, to trauma, to strokes and cardiac arrests. This job has exposed me to just about as much as I can get before entering medical school. I love the atmosphere and the willingness of the doctors to educate the scribes. You're basically getting paid to shadow, but you're actually involved in the process rather than a "shadow" of the doctors.

    Cons

    Some physicians have been proven as hard to work with, but this will happen in any job. It has taught me how to deal with difficult people which will greatly benefit my career. It is sometimes difficult to find coverage for shifts, but again, this happens everywhere. One bigger complaint is that our chief scribe was not very helpful or accommodating when it came to shift coverage due to an emergency. Car troubles or deaths in the family apparently do not count as a need for emergency shift coverage.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend hiring PRN scribes or people who do not work as much that could help with shift coverage during those times.

    I worked at Scribe America part-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity for pre-medical students (incldues Nurses, PA, and Pharmacy)

    Cons

    The amount of work performed does not correlate with the pay! The scribes are the physicians' right-hand man/woman and deserve a RAISE! Even the doctors think so!
