Medical Scribe

  • 80 Course Hours
  • $3,499

Overview

Medical scribes have become more and more common in medical offices. But they do a lot more than check off boxes on EHRs—they record critical information and allow physicians more time to focus on their patients.

Medical scribes aren’t on the frontlines of healthcare, which is good for those who prefer a little more predictability in their daily routines. They generally work behind the scenes —sometimes from the comfort of their own home—listening to dictations and converting them into written documents. Here’s what their daily responsibilities might include:

  • Listening to the recorded dictation of a doctor or other healthcare worker.
  • Interpreting and transcribing dictation into patient history, exam notes, and other documents.
  • Reviewing and editing drafts prepared by speech recognition software.
  • Translating medical abbreviations and jargon into the appropriate long form.
  • Following up with the healthcare provider to ensure that reports are accurate.
