What is a Scribe?

A scribe is a person planning to enter medical school, PA school, or a career in healthcare and who is looking to work in a clinically rich environment that will expose them to the world of medicine.


As a scribe, you will be exposed first-hand to medicine, and you will play a vital role in the management of patients. Scribes work one-on-one with providers, entering every patient room with the provider, documenting patient encounters, recording laboratory and radiology results, and assisting providers with the challenges of multi-tasking.

Job Requirements

The position is for highly motivated individuals who are flexible, dependable, responsible, and committed to a career in medicine.


The most important factor we take into consideration during the hiring process is character. A Scribe must be able to work in a team-based environment under stressful conditions, have an upbeat attitude at all times, a willingness to be challenged, a hunger to achieve, and the ability to work well with others. You will encounter patients from all walks of life here, and a non-judgmental attitude is essential.



No clinical experience is necessary! We provide all of the training on the job.


While this job may sound overwhelming, our scribes have been extremely successful. We devote tremendous resources to train each scribe in a paid, intensive training program that combines both classroom and on-the-floor learning. During this time you will be paired with an experienced scribe trainer who will provide you with continuous feedback.


You are not expected to work on your own until you are ready.



There are two available tracks for scribes:

  • Full-time: This is designed for college graduates or those who have a year or two off before medical school. Full time Scribes must work a minimum of 18 shifts each month (approximately 4-5 shifts per week) with a minimum commitment of one year.
  • Part-time: This is designed for current college students. Part time Scribes must work a minimum of 8 shifts each month (2-3 shifts per week) with a two-year commitment.
  • Unfortunately, we do not hire for summer only positions.


Most shifts last an average of 8-9 hours each with a balance of days, evenings, nights and weekends.  The schedule is flexible! Many of our scribes are currently in school, studying for the MCAT, or applying to school while working for ECC.

Application Process


Once received, we review applications on a rolling basis. If selected, you can expect to receive an interview invitation via email within 3-5 business days of applying. We are flexible on our start dates and encourage you to apply early.


We look forward to hearing from you!

Our History

ECC started their scribe program in 2006 as the first scribe program in the Midwest. The small group of eight scribes quickly grew and currently we now employ nearly 200 scribes. During the program’s lifetime we have started numerous scribe programs throughout the Midwest, both in hospital and clinical settings.


Launched Scribe Programs:

  • Emergency Departments (rural and urban locations)
  • Inpatient Hospital Settings (Internal Medicine, Psychiatry, PM&R)
  • Specialty Outpatient Clinics (ENT, OBGYN, PM&R)

Provided Services

ECC works closely with each practice to provide scribe services tailored to meet the needs of our clients. Our scribes take away the data entry, allowing providers to improve their efficiency, productivity, and focus on what matters the most – their patients.

ECC provides all of the recruiting, hiring, training, implementation, and day-to-day management of the scribes.
