If you'd like to get your name attached to some online articles, allow me to help you by inviting you to submit a short editorial blog post for one of these websites:
- Show potential employers your ability to write in an informal, non-academic setting. This is important on a variety of levels, ranging from marketing to consumer health education.
- Demonstrate your ability to develop consumer-friendly content. (physicians traditionally are known to struggle with this, because they tend to speak in scientific jargon and they forget to address important health literacy concerns)
- Reveal your familiarity (or expertise) in the specific domains, such as health IT, mobile technology, health education, biomedical informatics, Electronic Health Records (EHRs), iPhone, etc.
- Show that you are comfortable with computers and web-based content (physicians are traditionally considered technology-ignorant by many potential employers).
- Improve your presence on the Internet. By publishing articles on the web, these articles will pop up when people search your name on Internet search engines like Google and Yahoo.
