An EPPA medical scribe is typically a pre-health student or graduate who is planning on pursuing a career in the medical field. Our program is designed to be a stepping stone opportunity before applying to professional school. We offer an exceptional clinical work experience in addition to professional development workshops and monthly educational lectures.
Over the years hundreds of EPPA Scribes have left our program for medical school, physician assistant (PA) programs, dental school, physical therapy or occupational therapy programs, nursing masters programs, public health masters programs, and more!
EPPA is always accepting applications for new scribes. We review applications and interview year round and place scribes on-site when the timing is right for their availability and our staffing needs. We encourage anyone that is interested in scribing to apply 2-3 months in advance of their desired start date to secure a position.
The EPPA Scribe Program usually hires scribes who have completed core undergraduate science pre-requisite and lab coursework, have some healthcare related work and/or volunteer experience, and have the perceived ability to work a minimum of 16-20 hours per week. We discuss class schedules, extracurricular activities, and other work positions to best determine when you are available to start scribing.
Most EPPA Scribes stay with the program for 12-24 months working either full-time or part-time. This length of employment is not required, but encouraged to ensure countless hours of clinical learning. At this time, EPPA does not offer summer internship or short term employment opportunities for scribes.
