This program is a new, exclusive offering developed in partnership with the AHDPG—one of the nation’s leaders in healthcare documentation services, training, and certification. Get personalized career training based on the knowledge you already have.

A Medical Scribe performs documentation in the electronic health record (EHR), gathering information for the patient's visit and partnering with the physician to deliver efficient patient care. This role offers one-on-one collaboration with a physician and is unprecedented in its level of exposure to real medicine in practice. According to ScribeAmerica, a provider of medical scribes to hospitals and medical practices, a background in Medical Scribing is quickly becoming the standard for pre-medical experience and is suggested by medical school acceptance committees across the country.

Graduates of this program will be prepared to take the Scribe Certification Exam (MSCE). Tuition includes an exam voucher. Those who complete this program will also receive a University of Utah Medical Scribe Program Completion Award.

This program is offered in partnership with Career Step.
