Addressing the persistent challenge of underrepresented minorities (URM) in the medical field necessitates innovative approaches to guide URM students through pre-medical education and into medical school. Medical scribing presents a potential avenue for this purpose, involving individuals assisting physicians in real-time documentation within electronic medical records. To investigate this potential, a pilot survey study was conducted to examine the experiences of individuals working as medical scribes, specifically looking for disparities related to URM status. Out of 248 scribes, 159 (64% response rate) completed an online survey, covering demographics, scribing roles and tenure, and scribing experiences. The survey findings revealed that a significant majority (>80%) of participants found their experience as a medical scribe to be insightful in understanding the clinician's role, providing valuable mentorship, and strengthening their commitment to a medical career. Importantly, there were no discernible differences in reported experiences between URM-identified scribes and their majority counterparts. While the efficacy of medical scribing as a pathway for URM individuals to enter medical school remains to be fully determined, these initial results indicate a positive experience for URM individuals engaging in medical scribing.
