The Chirurgeons have a long history of utilizing scribes to help with the burden of patient paperwork, and this year the staff hopes to increase this volunteer activity. Scribes work for four-hour shifts throughout the day and night, just like Chirurgeons, with 1-2 scribes assigned to the reception desk at the Point. Scribes will also be needed for each battle, where they will be assigned to help take information for treating Chirurgeons at the battlefield points.
In addition to scribing, non-medical volunteers can assist with fundraising, supply inventory, running errands, and doing light housekeeping.
All Chirurgeon Scribes must be 18 years of age or older due to legal requirements. The Chirurgeons would like to encourage anyone under the age of 18 to volunteer at the Point for activities such as running errands and delivering messages.
Anyone wishing to volunteer to assist the Chirurgeons may sign up at Chirurgeons' Point. Please bring a photo I.D. There will be training sessions for volunteers throughout the War. Check at the Point for dates and times.
