“I Am Scribe” is an organization that provides scribes for physicians. In the Puget Sound area, they have opportunities for students at St. Claire and St. Joseph hospitals in Tacoma. A description of the job (copied from their website) follows. Great opportunity to see physician-patient interaction up close!
“Scribes provide real-time charting for physicians by shadowing them throughout their shifts and performing a variety of tasks including recording patients’ history and chief complaints, transcribing the physical exam, ordering x-rays, recording diagnostic test results, and preparing plans for follow-up care. Each shift, you will be assigned to a doctor or physician assistant and work side-by-side with them as they see patients. This means you will be in the room during each evaluation, documenting directly from the conversation between the doctor and patient.”
