American Healthcare Documentation Professionals Group

Our Medical Scribe Training Programs are targeted to two distinct candidate types. The Medical Scribe Professional Training Program is designed for individuals new to healthcare and/or those individuals interested in augmenting their existing knowledge in the areas of Medical Terminology and Anatomy & Physiology.  The Medical Scribe Training for Practicing Allied Health Professionals is designed specifically to help practicing Allied Health Professionals (MAs, MTs, LVNs, Techs, Translators, etc.) take on the activities associated with medical scribing.  The Medical Scribe Training for Practicing Allied Health Professionals begins from the vantage point the candidate is already well versed in Medical Terminology and Anatomy & Physiology.

Both program prepare a candidate to sit for AHDPG's National Medical Scribe Certification Exam.
