It is difficult to think of a better preparation for medical school than my scribe experience with VEMA. My time with the VEMA physicians has deeply ingrained in me a clinical intuition to hang and frame the knowledge from my textbooks and classroom lectures. A question stem or patient presentation is not theoretical or conceptual, but something I’ve seen VEMA physicians treat thousands of times and something I’ve written about thousands of times. Without even realizing, my time with VEMA already taught me many of the illness scripts, semantic qualifiers, and clinical reasoning skills that medical schools heavily emphasize in new-generation curriculums. I still consider my VEMA physicians and physician assistants as some of my greatest educators.
