Medical Scribe Certification

The demand for medical scribe services has never been higher. In just two months, HCC can train you to be a certified medical scribe. You’ll gain the skills and experience to work side-by-side with doctors, charting patient’s medical information in electronic health records. You’ll begin with online classwork, learning key medical terms and abbreviations and get an overview of anatomy and pathophysiology concepts. Next, you’ll work in a health care setting, applying your new skills in a real-work clinical environment. You’ll complete your training as a competitive medical scribe, ready to apply to doctor offices, emergency facilities, and medical scribe companies. Class starts in January 2021. For more information, email Kathy Schultz at HCC: kschultz@howardcc.edu.
