Why we do what we doPhysAssist Scribes believes in the importance of investing in each employee. We strive to offer leadership growth in both their professional and personal lives. Over the years, it has become clear that our employees lead happier lives if they feel engaged, a sense of project ownership, and fulfilled in their careers. This year’s conference theme is Be Here Now , meaning we commit to approaching each moment fully focused and fully connected. As one of five of our commitment statements, we found it vital to teach the attendees how to be fully engaged in the moment, not just for their career development but also for their personal fulfillment. With the commitment to drive change, another one of our commitment statements, in mind we work to drive change in our employee's careers and personal development by offering the tools that will groom them to be experts in their field. By providing everything from industry news on our social channels, an in-house leadership library, and our bi-annual leadership conference, we utilize every opportunity to grow our employee’s industry knowledge bank, develop thought leadership, and garner a deeper understanding of career fulfillment.
It’s back and packed full of meaningful direction! PhysAssist Scribes is excited to announce the event line-up for the Winter 2018 Leadership Conference. This year’s 2-day experience will have nuggets of wisdom for support team employees and scribes alike. The conference's focus and theme will be centered around perhaps one of our most powerful commitment statements, Be Here Now. Attendees will spend these two days unpacking and exploring what it means to "be engaged in the moment" and Be Here Now. The conference will foster and nurture leadership skills by teaching attendees how to be fully engaged.
CELEBRATING two 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! Many of them balance school with studying for the MCATs and families, just to name a few of their grueling responsibilities. We understand that each and every one of them goes above and beyond to perform, even when the emergency department is in overdrive.
In August, PhysAssist Scribes hosted the bi-annual Leadership Conference in our home of Fort Worth, Texas. Over 150 Chiefs, Lead Trainers, Certified Trainer Scribes (CTSs) and support team members joined together for two full days of meeting and discussing their experiences and accomplishments that they have seen take place during their time with PhysAssist. Here scribes are encouraged to compare their experiences with fellow scribes across the country and learn from one another.
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.

CHIEF SCRIBES, LEAD TRAINERS & CORPORATE TAKE ON LEADERSHIP TRAINING (& FUN!)
From August 16 to 17, 2016, we were pleased to bring together more than 100 individuals from across the nation for the biannual PhysAssist Scribes Leadership Conference. Chief Scribes, Lead and Head Trainers, as well as new and tenured corporate employees, gathered at the Hurst Conference Center in Hurst, TX, for an exciting event.
What started in 2012 as a small group of Chief Scribes meeting with home office members for team building and training development has now turned into a large-scale trade-show style forum for collaboration, sharing of ideas and leadership training.

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.
