Become a Certified Medical Scribe Specialist! Training and certification is provided by Clinical Scribes LLC.
Clinical Scribes LLC was founded by a local emergency department physician in 2007. After completing residency at Hennepin County Medical Center, he began working at a local ER. It wasn’t the shifts that bothered him, it was the documentation! So he started recruiting local college students to help out, training them himself. We have come a long way since then, but we never lost sight of our purpose: improving the lives of healthcare providers while personally investing in the lives of our employees.
As a scribe, you will follow in the footsteps of healthcare providers as they care for patients in a clinic or hospital. You will observe the physician question and examine patients, documenting what you see and hear. Based on the details from this interaction you will learn to write an eloquent history of present illness–something first year medical students don’t know–and particular physical exam maneuvers. We believe that the more medicine you know, the better scribe you will be and the more prepared you will be for your future career in medicine.
If you are interested in pursuing a career in medicine, working as a medical scribe is the best way to obtain a realistic perspective of clinical practice. Although most scribes are juniors or seniors in college or recent college graduates that decide to take a “gap year” before their graduate studies we also hire medical technicians, nursing assistants, or medical transcriptionists that are looking for a long-term fulfilling role in the healthcare field.
You don’t need any experience to become a medical scribe, just a strong work ethic and a few basic requirements including:
- Be reliable and punctual
- Accept and learn from constructive feedback
- Have a reliable mode of transportation

We’re not the biggest company, but that doesn’t mean we’re not the best fit for you. Our small staff, personalized management style, and opportunities for upward mobility separate Clinical Scribes from other medical scribe companies.
