We highly recommend completing the MCATs or GRE prior to starting the program. Newly hired, full-time scribes must be able to devote time to the one-month training process and adjusting to their new role at the emergency department. The job is demanding and time consuming, which makes it very hard to juggle studying for the MCATs/GRE on the side.
