ENMU-ROSWELL OFFERS NEW MEDICAL SCRIBE PROGRAM

 

A new Medical Scribe program is now being offered at ENMU-Roswell. This new Certificate of Employability is an academic option within the existing Medical Assisting program. Through this short 18 credit hour program, students can transition into the Medical Assisting and Medical Coding programs.

Medical Scribes are allied health professionals specifically educated to work in ambulatory settings performing data entry. Medical scribes accompany physicians/providers into the exam room and transcribe patient histories, physical exams, and patient encounters. Medical Scribe is a new allied health field based on data entry into EHRs (electronic health records). With the increased number of physicians using EHRs, this will continue to be a growing field.

Fall classes start August 21. Students enrolling in the program will be expected to meet health history, immunization, and background check requirements. For more information, contact Cheryl Vineyard, director of the Medical Assisting, Medical Coding and Medical Scribe programs, at 575-624-7199.
