Abstract
Medical scribing has become a way for pre-medical students to gain clinical experience in different settings of healthcare. This work allows students to shadow physicians and observe real patient-doctor interactions while also providing efficiency within the busy realm of healthcare. This paper provides a personal overview of the role of a medical scribe in the emergency department including required training, shift tasks, and specific cases that were observed within 200+ hours working as a medical scribe in the summer of 2022. A literature review is also provided that pertains to past and present gender, socioeconomic, and racial disparities within the emergency department. This review infers implications for how these inequities factor in for overall patient health and urges for further research in this field.
