ScribeAmerica: Part-Time and Full-Time Medical Scribe Opportunities Info Table

A Medical Scribe is a revolutionary concept in modern medicine. Traditionally, a physician’s job has focused solely on direct patient contact and care. However, the advent of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) created an overload of documentation and clerical responsibilities that slows physicians down and pulls them away from actual patient care. To relieve the documentation overload, physicians across the country are turning to Medical Scribe services.
ScribeAmerica is currently seeking to hire Medical Scribes all over Massachusetts. Part-time opportunities are available year-round and full-time roles are available for those about to graduate (often a great fit for those taking a gap year before attending medical school).
Stop by this information table to speak with local hiring associate Yasmin Asante.
