Trained ED Scribes: Where, When and How Your Department Needs Them


Trained Medical Scribes for Your Emergency Department

Every Emergency Department is unique and ScribeCanada understands that, so we set up a scribe programme that meets the specific needs and characteristics of your workplace, including up to 24 hour coverage, overlapping doctor options, holiday coverage, and ensuring that the scribe is fully conversant with your particular Electronic Medical Record system and its nuances before they start work.




ED and Medical Scribe Integration

We help you identify any current deficiencies, get connected with your billing company to find out how we can benefit you the most, and optimize EHR use and workflow at your facility.

Scribe Recruitment

We take pride in hiring the very best candidates to staff your programme. We offer a competitive salary and valuable medical experience so we can attract pre-medical and graduate students of a high calibre. This includes not only scribes with solid workplace and people skills but also the right temperament for this demanding role and department, as well as looking for a good personality fit with the ED physicians they will be assisting.



Medical Scribe Training for your ED

Medical Scribe Training for your ER

Our scribe training programme is comprehensive and consists of three distinct steps:

  • Step 1, a demanding 2-week classroom training and orientation course
  • Step 2, a supervisory period during which a highly experienced scribe provides training shifts and offers immediate review and feedback of the new scribe’s work.
  • Step 3, ongoing, regular reassessments that provide for indefinite and constant review of the scribe's effectiveness.


In all, each scribe receives a minimum of 120 hours of training and may receive much more depending on the circumstances.
