Life as a scribe

The daily life of a scribe is never dull. Each day you will experience something new and exciting. Every patient visit will be different, and you will learn to work in a fast-paced and challenging environment. Scribes are continually exposed to new diseases, people, and procedures every single day.

“I learn something new every day”

“It’s just me and the doctor all day. He  depends on me”

“I’m an important part of the patient’s care team.” 

Engaging and rewarding work

Scribing is engaging, demanding, and highly rewarding. Scribes use their medical knowledge, listening comprehension, quick typing speed and creative writing with each patient encounter. A scribe has to stay alert and often multitasks while working with physicians. 


A medical scribe can expect to contribute on the frontline of US medicine and be exposed to an array of specialities including internal medicine, cardiology, orthopedics, oncology, emergency medicine, and others. Over time and through experience, scribes often become experts in a particular medical speciality, learning from their partnerships with physicians.
