What will I take away from working as a Medical Scribe?

Once sufficiently experienced in working as a medical scribe, you will find that you have developed a firm grasp of how a provider should conduct their clinical examination. You will become fluent in the medical terminology specific to the specialty in which you work, and will begin to be able to recognize a wide range of medical conditions for which you will know which investigations will be conducted. You will learn to understand the process of medical decision making and how differential diagnoses are approached. Through working with a varied number of physicians you will see first hand the effects of different bedside manners, and how best to relay a patient’s disposition. This experience sets students apart from their peers in the application towards post-graduate studies including medicine and provides a foundation of skills that has permitted past MSC scribes to excel in their education.
