Does being a scribe count as shadowing?
Scribing does not count as shadowing. Shadowing is a voluntary (usually unpaid) experience with little to no expectation. Scribing is a paid clinical role that generally counts for a lot more on a med school app.
Is virtual shadowing worthwhile?
It is worthwhile for students because they still have the ability to shadow attendings as we take a thorough history, and when appropriate, students themselves can interview patients while their attendings observe them. Students can get feedback after the visit.
