We designed the VEMA Scribe Program specifically for pre-health candidates who want to acquire valuable skills while gaining direct exposure to the healthcare industry. VEMA scribes work in the Emergency Department at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital in Fairfax and Fauquier Hospital in Warrenton, where they learn from physicians who serve as their mentors.
smaller program, 1-on-1 attention
We keep our highly-selective program small on purpose, so that scribes can spend more time interacting with and learning from physicians. Through active, hands-on learning, VEMA scribes gain real clinical experience every day. Our admission rates for medical school, PA school, and nursing school are exceptionally high, and past Scribes consistently report that they feel better prepared and more confident upon entering the classroom.
