No. Our program is specifically designed to help students pursue medical school, PA, or nursing and give them the experience they need to become competitive in those fields.
For full-time positions, you must be able to commit at least one year to the program. Generally, full-time scribes stay up to a year and a half or until starting medical school/PA school. For part-time positions, you must be able to commit at least a year and a half to the program.
Full-time scribes typically average 32-36 hours/week. Part-time scribes are expected to commit 16-18 hours.
Applicants typically start between May and August of a given year.
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.
Due to Covid-19 the VEMA Scribe Program has been temporarily suspended. At this time, we plan to reopen the program in Spring 2021 and will begin accepting applications in January of 2021. We may reinstate the program earlier as the situation develops. To be kept up to date on any changes in the program’s timeline, please share your email and we will keep you informed.
