GVSU Scribe Academy

The GVSU Scribe Academy's program is designed to train individuals to assist healthcare providers by documenting patient care in the electronic medical record. Students enrolled in the program are trained in the classroom, online, and in the clinical setting.  Students that successfully complete the program will be hired as hourly employees of Helix Scribe Solutions

Scribes work in emergency departments (ED) and medical office settings. ED shift availability is around the clock, seven days a week. Medical offices operate during normal business hours.

**Update: there is no waitlist for scribes available to work in Battle Creek, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Owosso, Paw Paw, and other areas in West Michigan.  A $25 per shift travel stipend is offered at select locations. **
