Working with VEMA as a scribe was an incredible opportunity that helped prepare me for medical school and residency. I appreciated the time the attending physicians took to answer my questions about pathology they were seeing in the ED. Later in medical school, I made connections with the physiology I was learning and the pathology I had already seen. In addition to their teaching, the attending physicians provided guidance as I was preparing medical school applications. As a resident now, I appreciate the skills I acquired as a scribe. The multitasking and prioritizing that you learn on the job as a scribe goes a long way when you’re a busy resident managing an inpatient team.
