Earning the PMSC Certification
The PMSC is awarded to students who demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the pre-clinical concepts covered in GSN’s advanced/specialty-based medical scribe programs. Students comprehension is assessed with an one hundred question PMSC examination. The PMSC examination is included with program registration. However, if a student does not successfully pass the PMSC examination, that student will be allowed to remediate after 48 hours for a remediation fee of $25.00USD.
Clarification: Certificate and Certification
Certificate – Students can either enroll into the basic medical scribe course or an advanced/specialty-based program. Advanced/specialty-based programs are composed of both the basic medical scribe course and an advanced/specialty-based course specific for the program’s specialty (e.g family medicine program compose of the basic course and family medicine course). Students are immediately awarded with certificates of completion after finishing a basic or advanced/specialty course. This achievement is not the same as the professional medical scribe certification (PMSC).
Certification – The PMSC can only be achieved by successfully passing the PMSC examination which is offered after completing an advanced/specialty-based program. The PMSC cannot be achieved by enrolling into the basic medical course alone.
