Default Is working as a scribe useful for matching?

Hi guys. I was recently offered a scribe position. To be honest, I wasn't even sure what that was. Does anyone have any idea whether it'll help in matching? Thanks for any help.

Default Same situation !

I was offered an interview for scribe position as well, and it seems like a job mostly offered for premed students.

Well considering expensive externships...here are my thoughts :
You work in bigger hospital and emergency dept. with many physicians. You see patients really closely. You will use medical terms continuously. You get paid. You can make connections there. It can be your USCE possibly.

I tried to get other jobs at clinics, but.. Seems like i am going to stick to this one for now. : I

Hi could you guys tell me how you got the scribe position, as I have been trying but no luck. If I found one then I was told they do not offer the position to MDs.. thanks!
