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.
**Update: due to the pandemic, monthly scribe training for Grand Rapids greater area locations has been paused until summer 2021. We will still accept new applications**
