Dermatology Clinical Assistant/Scribe Position 2021-2022

Claire Cornell

Family Dermatology of Albemarle is presently looking to hire students who are considering a bridge year (June 2021 - July 2022) prior to enrollment in a health professional school.

We are presently looking to hire students who are taking a year or more off from their studies prior to enrollment in medical school or physician assistant school. We are in need of a dermatology clinical assistant/scribe who would bring patients back from the waiting room, take an initial history of the medical problems to be discussed, generate prescriptions to be sent electronically, help with surgical procedures, and provide medical education to our patients regarding dermatological conditions and treatment. This individual does not have to have any dermatology or surgical knowledge at all. We will teach all that is needed. This is a paid position.

This position would be of great benefit to someone wanting to take a year off from their studies, yet simultaneously obtain outstanding hands on experience applicable to furthering their medical career aspirations. After working with us for a year, the individual would be comfortable seeing live patients, taking succinct medical histories, assisting with surgical procedures, interfacing with electronic medical records, and well versed in dermatological diseases and treatments.

Interested applicants should submit a resume, GPA, and MCAT scores (if taken) to my email address as soon as possible:

Requirements for application
Applicants must be graduating and/or available for full time work beginning June 2021 through July 2022. If interested, submit a resume, current GPA, and MCAT scores (only if taken) to Dr. Brett Krasner at
