    Pros

    Great city to work and live in; most of the colleagues and staff there are laid back and friendly to work with

    The decision maker does not place enough emphasis on science; for PhD students, not enough recruiting PIs; for postdocs, the salary and benefit package cannot be worse

    I have been working at Tulane Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people that work there and the pay is good.

    Cons

    Beware of some of the people in management that will be very mean and only cares about getting bonuses annually.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all your employees with respect and acknowledge the fact that we do have life outside of work and have family that we have to take care of also.

    Pros

    -"Family" environment: nurses help other nurses. Co-workers are incredible!
    -Best starting pay in the city for new grads ($23.50)

    Cons

    -Understaffed, which creates dangerous nurse:patient ratios
    -Management: all talk no walk
    -Understocked!? Have to hunt down equipment (If you need- IV poles, "Christmas trees" for O2, bladder scanners, tele monitoring cables/monitors- you will be going on a scavenger hunt)
    -NOT NEW GRAD FRIENDLY: yes, willing to hire you, but the "residency program" is awful (and dangerous- only 6 weeks of orientation on the floor for ICU) and the nurses are NOT excited to precept.

    Advice to Management

    stock your floors and if you don't have the staff to orient a new grad then PLEASE DON'T HIRE THEM.

    Pros

    The experience was very valuable. Great part-time job for pre-med students or anyone considering medical school. You will get a ton of clinical exposure and learn more than you can in any science class about being a healthcare provider, working in a hospital setting and how to deal with patients. Med students and residents (and fellows) are excited about all that they know and are willing to offer help and assist you with med school applications. Clinical documentation is an integral part of healthcare delivery and as a scribe, you are responsible for translating the entire physician-patient interaction into the EMR in real time, giving you ample experience filling out all components of the patient's EMR. Different doctors give you different responsibilities. Your schedule is pretty flexible if you are part-time and you get the chance to pick up shifts in different specialties, which is cool.

    Cons

    $12/hr is not enough. Sometimes the doctors or coordinators are not very organized.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more full-time scribes. Doctors prefer a scribe that they are familiar with and can most appropriately train according to their preference, which improves healthcare delivery.
