Details:
The Physicians at University of Vermont Medical Center are creating a brand-new
Scribe Program for their Emergency Department. They have contracted with our company
ScribeAmerica to hire and train their Physician Scribes. Accordingly we are recruiting
outstanding students interested in careers in medicine to begin staffing their program. Our
company is the nation’s largest professional scribe training and management company in
the United States and present in over 340 healthcare facilities, in 40 states and employing
more than 3600 scribes. We are looking to recruit students to become part of our team.

The job opportunity is called an “Emergency Physician Scribe;” we act as personal
assistants to the physician and perform all of their non-patient-care tasks. These include
documentation, patient tracking, organization, and much more. We are looking for
extremely motivated, sharp, and adaptable students who perform well in a fast-paced and
high-energy environment. Because you will work one-on-one with a board certified
physicians for the entirety of their shift you become intimately familiar with the specialty.
Additionally you gain first-hand experience documenting exactly like a physician; a skill that
is invaluable later for any career in health.

There is both theoretical classroom training and applied training live in the outpatient
setting. Because of the rigors of training, all hours spent training are paid. Both time in the
classroom and time in the clinic are compensated. After training, shifts last 8-10 hours
each, and we ask for a minimum of two shifts per week. Additionally, since I personally
commit over 100 hours of training for each employee, there is verbal commitment of two
years of work for part time employees and one year of work for full time employees. The
training starts at $9.15 per hour, and increases to $10.00 per hour after you have proved
your ability to work in the outpatient clinic. Additionally we are looking to hire a chief scribe
to run the program at this hospital so career opportunities are available for noteworthy
candidates.

There are few other opportunities that allow for such direct exposure to medicine:
and this opportunity is paid. This job is one of a kind; those who have excelled as scribes
have consistently progressed to have successful careers in medicine. If you especially
impress a physician they will be happy to provide a strong letter of recommendation for
medical school. Additionally the medical terminology acquired during your time as a scribe
will put you leagues above your other classmates later in school.

Zarillo at uvmcscribes@scribeamerica.com. Please let me know if you have any questions,
and I look forward to applicants from your school.
