Interested in the UVA Medical Scribe Program?

Scribes are hired as hourly employees and assist the Emergency Department physicians by documenting the entire medical record.  The responsibilities of Scribes include, but are not limited to, documenting the history of present illness, review of systems, physical exam, and procedure notes.  In addition, Scribes track laboratory and radiology results. These responsibilities are part of a coordinated effort between the Scribe and the resident physician to ensure complete and accurate documentation.

The program provides the opportunity for pre-medical students to gain significant clinical knowledge and experience while contributing to patient care in the ED.  Through close interaction with the ED physicians, Scribes gain great exposure to patient care and Emergency Medicine.
