The GVSU Scribe Academy's program is designed to train individuals to assist healthcare providers in local Emergency Departments (ED) by documenting patient care in the electronic medical record. Students enrolled in the program are trained in the classroom, online, and in the ED. Students that successfully complete the program will be hired as hourly employees of Emergency Care Specialists.
Emergency Department (ED) Scribes work one-on-one with ED healthcare providers by documenting patient care in real-time, at the bedside, through the use of the electronic medical record. Working in the ED can be exciting, fast paced, and extremely educational. Scribes interested in pursuing a career in a healthcare profession can gain a competitive edge and set themselves apart from their peers. Whether a common cold or life threatening trauma, scribes gain valuable medical knowledge and exposure to the decision making process of emergency medicine.
