Ambition, passion and hard work truly pay off

This autumn, the North Texas Ace Foundation (NTAF) held the Rebecca Keel Memorial Scholarship in honor of Rebecca Keel, a former PhysAssist Scribe who tragically lost her life in 2015. Becky was a true leader. She was passionate, adventurous, bright and a huge dreamer who hoped to make the world a better place. (Click here to read more about Becky.)

More than 70 incredibly driven, remarkable individuals applied for the scholarship, from which one shining star was selected to receive the $5,000 award: Priya Patel, a junior attending Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Not only is Priya an exceptional student, she is tireless, partaking in a myriad of activities from volunteering for Habitat for Humanity to the North Texas Food Bank to taking classical Indian dancing classes! Additionally, Priya works as a medical scribe for the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Kaufman team in Dallas.

We believe that PhysAssist Scribes provides an unprecedented opportunity for future medical providers to learn about the fast-paced world of medicine, literally from the trenches.

Our providers help people when they are unwell and our scribes help those providers...on so many levels. Every scribe has a unique story about how their experience made an impact on their medical school or physician assistant program education; not to mention the incredible things they learned by being a part of the emergency department experience—from clockwork teamwork during codes to understanding scans and EKGS to the special comraderie that exists between doctors, nurses, PAs, NPs and, of course, scribes.
