What is a Scribe?
Scribes are individuals trained in medical documentation who assist a physician throughout his or
her shift. They serve as a personal assistant to the doctor to help make them more efficient and
productive. At Elite Medical Scribes, we recruit and train college students and recent graduates who
have an interest in pursuing a career in medicine.
The primary function of a scribe is the creation and maintenance of the patient's medical record,
which is done under the supervision of the attending physician. The scribe will document the
patient's story, the physician's interaction with the patient, the procedures performed, the results
of laboratory studies, and other pertinent information. This is accomplished by using a WOW
(workstation on wheels) that the scribe takes with him or her throughout the shift.
Additional functions of a scribe may include assisting with the patient's disposition, documenting
consultations, and notifying the physician when important studies are completed.
