I wanted to ask about what're y'alls thoughts about virtual scribing? There's a lot of jobs that opened up for clinical jobs, but I don't know how medical schools generally view virtual medical scribing experience compared to in-person medical scribing. How helpful is it for building hours for med school apps?

Virtual scribing offers all of the pain in the neck aspects of scribing without any of the benefits lol. My advice is to not do any scribing unless it is in-person (unless you're doing virtual shifts in addition to in-person shifts to make some more money).
