A scribe refers to a medical scribe, who are highly trained individuals in medical documentation assisting healthcare providers throughout a patient encounter. Scribes eliminate both the burden and distraction of EMR conversions and ongoing utilization, allowing clinicians more time to focus on patient care.
Many of Elite’s medical scribes are pre-med students interested in pursuing a career in healthcare. We typically employ college juniors, seniors and recent graduates, as well as individuals who have completed a two-year associates degree.
Following the Elite Academy training, Elite’s medical scribes receive a unique education ‘at the elbow’ from some of the nation’s finest healthcare providers at some of the most prestigious hospitals and clinics in the world.

Our involvement in the quality of care received by patients is a responsibility that we do not take lightly.

Doctors and professional school admissions boards know that, in addition to being incredibly talented and highly motivated, Elite’s medical scribes complete a rigorous training program in order to be considered for one of our many scribe program locations across the country.
We are looking for people who really want to make a difference. There are many benefits to joining the Elite Medical Scribe team, including opportunities for advancement, travel, and eligibility for our Dr. Ed Memorial Scholarship Program.
