Return to Degrees and Certificates Return to: Degrees and Certificates

The Medical Scribe certificate prepares an individual to be trained in medical documentation to assist a physician throughout his or her shift. They serve as a personal assistant to the doctor to help make them more efficient and productive. The primary function of a scribe is the creation and maintenance of the patient’s medical record, which is done under the supervision of the attending physician. The scribe will document the patient’s story, the physician’s interaction with the patient, the procedures performed, the results of laboratory studies, and other pertinent information.
