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.

CELEBRATING 2 EXTRAORDINARY INDIVIDUALS FOR AMAZING WORK!

Our medical scribes are bright, hardworking and dedicated to doing the best that they can—and then they do even more!

We understand that each and every one of them goes above and beyond to perform, even when the emergency department is in overdrive.

Life Behind The Scrubs

Posted by Sophie Penkrat on Aug 26, 2016 1:40:16 PM

we've got talents, oh yes we do!

It takes a lot of smarts, time and energy to be a medical scribe. Likewise, a lot of effort and know-how goes into nurturing and managing scribes and teams on the ground and in the emergency department. With all of the hustle and bustle in the ED and behind the scenes, it's easy to forget that each person involved in the common goal of assisting our providers is an individual—each with a unique personality and abilities.
