Become Scribe certified, earning Certified Medical Scribe Specialist (CMSS) credential and designation. Credentialing enhances patient safety in the clinical documentation setting and ensures a mastery of medical scribe training and education.  Certification covers pre-clinical and clinical training.

The Medical Scribe Certification and Aptitude Test, also known as “the MSCAT” is designed to verify a medical scribe’s breadth of knowledge with respect to medical terminology, technical spelling, the Patient Privacy Rule and HIPAA, the scribe’s role in medico-legal risk mitigation, understanding the essential elements of documenting a physician-patient encounter, evaluation and management level, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), the Joint Commission’s Accountability Measures and general knowledge of the roles and responsibilities of general medical personnel.

Upon graduation, all students may sit for e-MSCAT.  Those students who successfully pass e-MSCAT and do not have 200 hours of clinical employment experience, will be a Certified Medical Scribe Appretice (CMSA).  Once hours are fulfilled, full recognition of CMSS will be awarded. *Of note, those individuals possessing a certification or licensure of Practical Nurse, Registered Nurse, Paramedic or Certified Medical Assistant will be awarded CMSS upon successfully completing 50 hours of clinical experience.
