I am currently a post-bacc pre-med student looking for a part time job to earn some cash. I need the money desperately, and want to stick to a job that is within my field of study. I am currently enrolled in a hospital volunteer position at UCLA. I currently applied for a few positions in various hospital ER's, but am waiting to hear back and have been told they may not be hiring until next summer. Any suggestions on good pre-health jobs in the greater Los Angeles area? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I'm currently an ER scribe and I would highly recommend it. It's really a great experience. There's no formal certification required, but most programs will spend time training new scribes, anywhere from a few days to a week.

there's no formal license but like the other guys have said you'll have a good amount of PAID training to go through. i think the scribe program in upland averages about 40 hours of training...at least that's what they claim on their website.

I have been looking for Scribe positions in Tampa, but no luck yet. Closest things has been Medical Assistants. Hopefully the hospital I am volunteering at will give me a shot.
