Moore Norman Technology Center launches an exciting new health program this spring, and most exciting is that Introduction to Medical Scribe is the only class of its kind in the metro area, and it can only be found at MNTC!
If you see yourself working in a fast-paced and fascinating medical career, consider the medical scribe career path. A medical scribe is a paraprofessional who specializes in charting physician-patient encounters in real-time, such as during medical examinations.
Medical scribes generate referral letters for physicians, book appointments, and manage and sort medical documents within an electronic health records (EHR) system.
Becoming a medical scribe allows you to work in a medical setting and help others, without performing direct patient care. Many pre-professional students enjoy the experience of being a medical scribe as they prepare for medical, dental, physical therapy, pharmacy or nursing careers because it gets them into the industry quickly, and offers them a chance to gain direct experience in the medical field.
As a medical scribe, you get to add valuable skills to your resume, gain experience, and make new connections in the health care world. Many medical scribes also appreciate that this career offers them the ability to set their own schedules through a variety of shifts and settings.
MNTC’s Introduction to Medical Scribe class begins in January 2020 and concludes in June. The class meets Monday and Wednesday evenings at the South Penn Campus in south Oklahoma City. The class is taught by experienced MNTC Instructor Amy Lake, a medical records expert. Contact me for questions or to learn more, or visit here if you're ready to enroll.
