is looking for students to work asMedical Scribes in Canton, OH.

The scribe will work side by side with physicians assisting with documentation for each patient evaluated by the doctor. 

The role of a scribe is to closely collaborate with their assigned physician by documenting the history of each patient evaluated, the doctor’s physical examination, the results of laboratory/radiological studies ordered, and the eventual diagnosis and disposition.  Becoming a scribe provides the student with first rate exposure to medical terminology, disease processes, emergency procedures, medications, and the medical decision making process performed by the physicians.

We need dependable and hard-working employees that have a desire for an eventual career in medicine, or are interested in learning more about careers in medicine.  There are multiple shifts, both day and night and each shift consists of following a single physician, usually lasting 8-12 hours. It is expected that each scribe can commit to 2 shifts per week for at least 2 years.

Paid classroom & clinical training is provided. Each employee will have multiple training sessions both in the classroom and the emergency department during which we teach the flow of the emergency room, extensive medical terminology, and appropriate medical/legal documentation.

Summa Health System

 Employment Opportunity

From: Melissa Maddi: Research Program Director of Orthopedic Surgery at Summa Health System.  

We are interested in obtaining the assistance of undergraduate students who would be interested in helping out on manuscripts for publication. At this level, we would provide them with a detailed outline (written by our residents and attending physician), where then the undergrad student along with the assistance of medical students would perform the literature search and write the first draft of the paper (review articles, book chapters, meta-analysis, etc).  

Obviously, if accepted for publication their name would be listed!  We feel this is the great way for students to get exposure to medical research and build up their CVs for medical school applications. This will also help us push more projects through our pipeline.  

Feel free to email or call if you have any question.
