A medical scribe joins a doctor and enters a patient's medical information into an electronic system. Medical scribes also retrieve information for providers in preparation for upcoming appointments and can respond to various messages from both the patient and the doctor upon request. Medical scribes aim to improve the efficiency of doctor-patient encounters so that the doctor can focus solely on treatment and not office work. Because the position provides a wide view of the medical field and a chance to work with doctors, some U.S. medical schools suggest that prospective medical school students should first work as medical scribes to gain relevant experience.
