The person is in the exam room with me, so it is an excellent clinical experience. I use people who are Pre-Med or Pre-PA, taking a gap year. These people work out great, but can usually only work for one year. My current scribe will be leaving soon, so I am looking for a new person to replace her. I need someone who can type really well and has excellent grammar and spelling. To do this, I am using the website, "Indeed." This is a job search website. With this website, I can have the applicant do a typing test and a written communication test. These tests are essential for me to hire someone. I have put the link below, but the ad does pop up right away when you go to the job search and put in "Medical Scribe in Baltimore." I do need to hire someone quickly, as they will need a few weeks of training with my current scribe. If you have any questions, you can call me here at my office, (410) 433-8801. On Wednesdays, I can be reached at (443) 388-3515.
