Medical Scribe (Interventional Pain Management)

The primary role of the Medical Scribe is to collaborate with the Interventional Pain Management physician in the documentation of each patient’s medical chart during his/her visit at the Office or Surgery Center. This well developed team member will ensure a smooth/flowing effective program and optimize patient care.

Applicants who are pre-medical students will have a unique and rare opportunity to work directly with a double board certified subspecialist physician on staff at three major Puget Sound hospitals. This will yield profound insight into the daily life of an attending subspecialist physician and the care of medical patients. Adequate performance will result in a letter of recommendation to medical school.

Ideally I’m looking for a pre-med student that wants to work with me for a year while applying to med school. These folks get great exposure and a strong letter of recommendation.

Visit www.jasonattaman.com for more information with the practice!

The hours and day of the week are my clinic schedule;

  • Tuesday 10-4 Bellevue
  • Wednesday Bellevue, 10-2 (every other Wednesday)
  • Friday 10-6 Bellevue
  • Saturday 10-5 Bellevue, possibly 10-5 Seattle on alternate Saturdays

To apply, please send your resume or CV to my clinic Manager Michelle Fitzpatrick at michelle@soundinterventionalpain.com and current scribe Jessica at jessica@soundinterventionalpain.com.

Apply for the King County Medical Society Student Shadowing Program!

KCMSThe King County Medical Society (KCMS) Student Shadowing Program was created to help connect students with opportunities to observe the medical field in a clinical setting. The shadowing experience is intended to help students decide whether medicine is truly something they wish to pursue by watching a physician’s daily activities in an effort to learn and see the environment of a physician in practice. This experience will provide students a “real-life” view of the medical field.

A growing trend for medical school admissions is an emphasis on physician shadowing experience. The KCMS Shadowing Program is dedicated to aiding students in meeting that recommendation by providing an online database of member physicians located in Seattle/King County who are available to provide shadowing opportunities to pre-medical students.


 

The role of the Advisor:
– Informing your students about the Pre-Med Student Shadowing Program
– Verifying that they meet the KCMS Student Shadowing Requirement of being in ‘junior or beyond’ standing
– Sending them to the KCMS website

The role of the Student:
– Filling out an application on the KCMS website, www.kcmsociety.org
– Requesting a Letter of Recommendation from their advisor (you)
– Submitting a completed application
– Contacting their assigned physician and scheduling their shadowing hours

The role of the KCMS:
– Reviewing applications
– Answering Student Shadowing Program questions
– Matching students with physicians
– Recruiting KCMS physician-members to provide shadowing opportunities

KCMS will be working with various Community Health Clinics to provide shadowing opportunities in public health.

Get additional details and access the online application at http://expd.uw.edu/expo/scholarships/Classof1962. Deadline – April 6.

Class of 1962 Endowed Scholarship Website: Description. The Class of 1962 Endowed Scholarship was developed to commemorate the 1962 alumni’s collective experience at UW.

We have two volunteer roles for students: medical assistants and diabetes counselors.  Medical assistants help campers with testing their blood sugar before meals and bedtime, treat low blood sugars, and fill in for other staff as needed.  We ask that medical assistants plan to attend camp for at least three days and two nightsDiabetes counselors are assigned to a specific cabin and accompany their campers on activities throughout the week to help with diabetes management.  We ask that these volunteers attend camp for the whole week.

Room and board is provided for all volunteers.  No prior experience is needed, as there will be training before camp to teach you everything you need to know!

If you’re interested in volunteering at camp, please contact Kelsey Stefanik-Guizlo by June 15 at kstefanikguizlo@diabetes.org.
