If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then Roane State’s Medical Scribe courses may be just what you are looking for!
Medical Scribe: A Medical Scribe works alongside the physician in a medical office or hospital setting assisting with the documentation aspect of the patient care. Medical scribes document the verbal communication between the patient and physician and provide real-time transcription of physician notes. They may also perform other related tasks such as the retrieval of medical test results and scheduling medical tests and procedures, etc.
Our courses provide a hands-on approach to learning the daily operations and skills needed to be successful as a Medical Scribe.
Daily operations may consist of:
Medical Scribe courses are delivered in a combination of web, hybrid, and traditional classroom. Traditional classes are at the Oak Ridge Campus.
Classes may be completed in 4 months (one semester) after completion of any learning support classes (longer if necessary)
Enrollment is on a space available basis, if course prerequisites are met.

It is anticipated that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act will increase patient access to healthcare delivery systems. An influx of patients into existing healthcare delivery systems coupled with an increasing demand for more comprehensive medical documentation in an electronic medical record (EMR) environment will increase the need for healthcare support workers such as Medical Scribes.
Medical Scribes are typically employed in physician’s offices and hospitals.
