Hi,

 I’m brand new to scribing and excited to be learning, however, i want to learn faster and perfect my skills so not to bother my doctor (OBGYN)with questions and edits and modifications. I’ve not had any education where scribing is concerned. 

Can any of you please help or advise me?

Hi Candy, It is exciting to be new to scribing.  I think you will love it!  I like that you want to do what you can to further your knowledge and you are in luck because there are now many educational opportunities available.  I am actually one of the instructors for an online educational Medical Scribe training course that my company offers.  The company is American Healthcare Documentation Professionals Group (AHDPG)   We currently offer two main scribe courses - one for a beginning scribe and the other is for candidates that already have a background in the medical field.  They are both offered as online, self-paced courses.   Please check them out by visiting our Main page website at:   www.ahdpg.com.  From the main page Select TRAINING and then Select Medical Scribe to see the list of Medical Scribe programs we offer.      If you decide this would be a good route for you on your educational path, I would look forward to "seeing" you in one of our programs!   🙂

Darlene Castles, CMSP

I actually took the course that Darlene mentioned and really enjoyed it. I am now a Certified Medical Scribe and have been working with a family physician in clinic and hospital base setting for 2 years now. It is a great educational experience. It can be frustrating at times but stick with it and have a good open communication with your physician. Physical exams can be the toughest without communication.

Could you please share more of your experiences?

I am looking forward to taking the examination. Any pointer that you can suggest will be immensely helpful!

Thanks in advance!

My recommendations:

I would recommend Reading the MSCE BluePrint. You can do this by Selecting ‘CNTRL + Click’ to follow the Link by that name. (You should see that in the material from the LINK I gave you in the last Reply). The Blueprint lists the main topics covered in the Exam.

  • I would also recommend taking the ‘Practice Test’ as it is a sampling of questions as they may appear on the Certification Exam. (This is also located in the LINK in the previous Reply).

 The Exam covers a broad range of topics (Listed in the BluePrint) and some of the Anatomy and Physiology questions may be speciality specific. Have you taken an Educational Scribe course or have you had Scribe training? Do you work as a scribe currently? If so – what specialty or type of facility do you work in?

Since you asked about my experience in taking the Exam - - I did have Scribe training and educational coursework, and I had also completed 200+ hours working as a scribe prior to taking the Exam. But even so, I did study up on the topics that I knew were going to be on the exam.   I hope this helps!

Ethan I apologize I have not replied sooner to you. I should check this more often. By the way this discussion forum was a great idea. I live in a very remote town where I am the only scribe and not able to bounce experiences or ideas with any fellow coworkers prior to this. HIM (billers/coders) are good resources as well. I hope you did well on the exam. I have actually decided to go back and get my medical assistant certification now as well through AHDPG. These guys have helped me advance in my career and Peter and Darlene are so awesome. I did review the blueprint  and took the practice test as Darlene suggested. I did not wait long after my training to take the exam which helped as well.

 

Hope that helped,

Michael
