Medical Scribe (Online)
HMS E58 – Medical Scribe
Medical scribes are the newest addition to the medical team. They are trained medical information managers, specializing in charting physician-patient encounters during medical examinations. Medical scribes work directly with the provider or remotely. They enter patient information into an electronic health record in real time under the direction of a physician or independent practitioner. This 60 hour course will prepare students to document medical provider dictation and activities.
