Apprentice Medical Scribe Professional

Program Description:
As the use of Electronic Health Records continues to become more widespread in the healthcare industry, the need for Medical Scribes continues to grow. This quickly emerging profession allows the scribe to work directly with physicians to accurately document all aspects of the patient visit.

This hybrid course will cover the roles and functions of a medical scribe, as well as medical terminology, coding, use of an EHR, and various progress note formats. Upon completion, the student will be prepared to sit for the Apprentice Medical Scribe Professionals (AMSP) Certification exam. This class is a mix of classroom hours and online work.

CVCC offers a pre-course, The American Heart Association Basic Life Support (BLS) class to train students to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations, and provide early use of an AED. This class is specifically designed for healthcare professionals and other personnel who need to perform CPR and other basic cardiovascular life support skills.

CVCC also offers an optional pre-course, Medical Terminology Bootcamp, designed to assist students in learning medical language and basic structure and function of the human body.
