Regional Conference at UW School of Medicine

The UW Student National Medical Association (SNMA) within the UW School of Medicine and SNMA regional leadership have put together an awesome regional conference on November 10th-12th, 2017 at UW.

Highlights include AMAZING keynote speakers, skill and technique workshops such as suturing and ultrasound, fun networking with residents/doctors and pre-medical and professional students from all across the pacific northwest, USMLE practice with Kaplan, mock professional school interviews, an exhibition fair with representation from medical schools and residency programs across the country, and workshops pertaining to community driven health care.

Scribing Opportunity Available at Polyclinic Seattle

ScribeAmerica is currently looking to recruit students to work as Scribes in the Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics departments at The Polyclinic in Seattle, WA. The scribe will work one on one with board certified physicians assisting with documentation for each patient evaluated by the doctor. It is an exceptional opportunity for any student interested in medicine to gain first-hand experience following a physician in an emergency department setting.

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, procedures, medications, and the medical decision making process performed by outpatient physicians.

This job is not for everyone; the complexity of the material and fast-paced environment necessitate that only the sharpest and most motivated students succeed as a scribe. We are looking for 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 throughout the week and each shift consists of following a single physician, usually lasting 8-10 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. The training is extensive and intense. 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.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity which has demonstrated itself to be excellent experience for students preparing for careers in medicine. Our past employees that excelled as scribes have gone on to receive outstanding evaluations in their clinical trials and residencies.

Shoreline CC is hiring tutors

Shoreline Community College Tutoring Services is actively seeking more one-on-one tutors across the curriculum.

To qualify for an interview, applicants should:

* have at least a 3.5 or an instructor recommendation (forms available) in the courses to be tutored and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above.

* have a strong desire to help others’ learning processes with professionalism and patience!

* carefully fill out our application, including brief but thoughtful responses to the two questions at the end.

We do our best to provide tutors to students in ANY course offered at Shoreline Community College, from accounting to visual communications technology, so we are interested in tutors across the curriculum. Most recently, we have struggled to meet the student demand in areas such as business technology, geography, nursing, statistics, and a wide variety of 200-level STEM courses, and we know we’ll need more tutors this fall for classes from accounting to physics, manufacturing to nutrition, computer science to communication studies, and many more.

Tutoring Services welcomes and encourages both domestic and international student applicants as well as qualified non-students, and we strive to employ tutors who represent the diversity of Shoreline’s student population. There is a hiring process for all applicants, which can take time as it moves from the initial application, to an interview, to paperwork, to HR processing and activation. Qualified domestic students who are interviewed and offered a position might start three or more weeks from their date of application. Given the month+ timeline for acquiring a social security card through completing new hire paperwork, qualified international students often have a longer wait to start actively tutoring. Because of the time this hiring process takes, we are particularly interested in those who will be able to tutor more than one quarter, but we consider all qualified applicants.
