Below: Amy Fogelman, MD, writes that once you get your first few jobs and knock their socks off with great quality work, word-of-mouth will make you a sought-after expert.

 

1. Email.

Look up Medical Malpractice or Personal Injury attorneys in your area, and send them a letter or email introducing yourself.

TIP: Attorneys are always looking for new undiscovered expert talent.

 

2. Linkedin.

Update your Linkedin Profile. It’s free marketing. Attorneys use Linkedin and I’ve spoken to Medical Experts who secured their first job through an attorney’s random InMail inquiry.

 

TIP: New to Linkedin? Check out this primer for how to make your profile stand-out: Linkedin Blog, by Chantal Hamlmos.

Also, Drop Out Club has some terrific information in their Resources including how to write a stellar Linkedin Profile.

 

 

3. Friends.

Contact your Lawyer friends to tell them you are interested in this type of work.

Even if they don’t interface with Medical Experts, they may be able to connect you with colleagues who do.

 

4. Paid Online Expert Directory.

Pay to list with an online Expert Directory.

There are several, such as the SEAK Expert Witness Directory.

Most online directories require physicians to pay an annual fee to be listed on their site.

TIP: For best results, include a professional headshot and an updated CV on your listing.

 

5. Concierge Matching Service.

List with a Concierge Medical Expert matching service such as with my company, linked in my bio, below.

You are listed free of charge, and if you are matched with an attorney, you then arrange your fees directly with counsel.

TIP: When you are contacted, call the attorney back promptly. If you are difficult to reach, they will go to the next expert on their list.

Once you get your first few jobs and knock their socks off with great quality work, word-of-mouth will make you a sought-after expert.
