As the use of Electronic Health Records continues to become more widespread in the healthcare industry, the need for Medical Scribes continues to grow. This quickly emerging profession allows the scribe to work directly with physicians to accurately document all aspects of the patient visit.
This hybrid course will cover the roles and functions of a medical scribe, as well as medical terminology, coding, use of an EHR, and various progress note formats. Upon completion, the student will be prepared to sit for the Apprentice Medical Scribe Professionals (AMSP) Certification exam. This class is a mix of classroom hours and online work.
