Bastyr events for interested Shoreline students

Bastyr is holding two events for students interested in graduate nutrition and/or naturopathic medicine on Friday, October 27.

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.

Tomorrow the American Association of Medical Colleges will partner with the National Research Mentoring Network to co-host a webinar on “How to Write a Great Personal Statement”.

https://nrmnet.net/event/nrmn-career-development-webinar-how-to-write-a-great-personal-statement-with-the-aamc/

https://zoom.us/webinar/register/12745d30ded1cf1734538d7d4481ef37

The Personal Statement introduces you to the admissions committee – as a budding scientist and as a person. The goal of this webinar is to provide some general guidelines and important information about the personal statement so that your statement successfully introduces you to the committee.

Presenters will explain why applicants for any program are required to write a statement and will review the different types of statements including a personal history, a research statement, a statement of purpose, or a combination of all three.

Speakers will highlight the major Personal Statement elements that every admissions committee wants to see, and finally, they will present an outline for a sample personal statement.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Speakers: Drs. Victoria Freedman, Audra Van Wart, Cynthia Wright
