The experiences the VEMA scribe program provided were highly beneficial to me in PA school. During my time with the program, I learned the essentials of composing the electronic medical record and was exposed to the flow of the emergency department. After my skills improved I was able to contribute to improving that flow and was able to get a first hand look at each physician’s medical decision making. I gained knowledge of disease presentation, lab work/radiological studies and their results, and treatment. My experience with the VEMA scribe program during my gap year was invaluable. I believe the experience made me more prepared for PA school and will make me a better provider one day
