Testimonials for Boulder Centre for Othopedics:
Scribing at BoulderCentre for Orthopedics has been a unique opportunity for me to work closely with physicians specializing in Orthopedic Surgery, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Radiology, as well as several physician assistants and physical therapists. While most scribe positions are considered “shadowing on steroids,” the scribe position at BCO bridges the gap between medical assistant and scribe. This has allowed me to gain significant patient interaction. Furthermore, I have gained several insights into medicine including the busy, yet incredibly rewarding lifestyle of a doctor, the role of teamwork in healthcare today, and the importance of establishing positive rapport with your patients. I am also frequently able to shadow in surgery. Working at BCO has been an opportunity for me to see exactly how I can live out my passion in the healthcare profession, and I greatly value the clinical experience that I have gained here. -Andrew
Being a medical scribe has allowed me to obtain first hand experience in a clinic setting. A lot of students do not get the opportunity to actually work in a setting where they are interacting with patients, being exposed to the work flow of a medical office, and work with insurance companies to help provide to care for our patients. This job has been pivotal in my growth in these areas that will better prepare me for work in the future. I have also gotten the opportunity to work with physicians on a first name basis, and get to see who they are other than just being a doctor. By doing so, I am establishing future connections for career/school advice and support, as well as making life long mentors. -Eric
