I figured this out early and reapplied to ERAS and rematched as a PGY1 at a new program in another specialty that is completely unrelated.

    Will Quitting The Scribe Position after 5 months and putting it on my application look bad?

    I was hired by a popular scribe company in September, however due to the more than advertised hours (I was expecting 2 shifts a week, but I am actually getting 3-4) and very disorienting shift times( over night shift one day and then a morning shift the next day) I don't think it is worth it for...
