Why Become a Medical Expert Witness


  • Getting medical expert witness work is one of the most lucrative side gigs out there.
  • If you’re already a Medical Professional, you can make extra cash on the side
  • You can do this while keeping your primary job, taking care of patients.
  • It’s fairly simple, with the right resources at hand.



But most medical professionals likely don’t know this:
Even if you manage to get contacted by attorneys for cases, actually doing Expert Witness analysis well isn’t as obvious as one might think.


Imagine what your life would be like if you actually had:


  • a roadmap to complete all the steps, as a Medical Expert, from initial phone call to trial testimony, and everything in between.
  • your own small business Limited Liability Company (LLC), allowing you to perform Expert work safely while claiming appropriate tax write-offs.
  • the perfect Medical Expert resume to make you stand out from the competition.
  • confidence and know-how to be a successful and objective expert who upheld the highest standards at all times.


Having the confidence to know how to uphold the highest forensic standards at all times is something that you – any medical professional – can learn. It’s something that I teach in this course. I’ve pulled together training videos, worksheets, handouts, and more, to help you not only become a medical expert, but the BEST expert that you can be.



It can feel really overwhelming, sure.

The fact is, you may have already been approached for expert jobs in the past. Most medical professionals don’t recognize these opportunities, or ignore them because they didn’t know what questions to ask.

On the other hand, you may have already been interested in Expert Witness work in the past, but don’t know where to start in order to pursue cases.

Either way, now’s the time to leverage the opportunities that exist.

What You'll Gain By Enrolling:


You have spent years training to become an excellent medical professional but that does not automatically translate to knowing how to be an excellent Expert Witness.



You will be given actionable steps including worksheets and handouts for all the stages of medical expert case analysis from the first attorney phone call to the trial and everywhere in between. Learn what you should do, and what you should avoid doing, so that you can impress the attorney and get hired again and again.



This course will go through the process involved to form your own small business including applying for your Employee Identification Number (EIN) through the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). If you follow all the steps you will be a small business owner by the course’s end. This is not meant to serve as tax advice- and should not take the place of advice from your personal attorney or your accountant.


Legal jargon is another language, just like medical jargon. This course will teach you what legal terminology you need to know and how to apply it to your analysis. Course handouts include a legal dictionary for use during your future cases.


Many medical professionals do not understand the different types of cases that exist and what their role would be as an expert in each. Highly sought after experts get inquiries about all types of matters. This course will teach you about different case types so that you can think about which ones you want to be involved in now, before lawyers contact you. You don’t want to waste your time discussing cases in which you do not have an interest.



You will be taught tips and strategies for marketing yourself and making yourself standout from the other medical professionals. You will learn how to set up an online presence for free using Social Media platforms as well as the pros and cons of using Expert Witness listing and referral services. You will understand the importance of creating polished and accurate resumes and online profiles and will easily be able to achieve these results with our actionable steps.

Questions people asked before purchasing Basics for Becoming a Medical Expert Course:

Q: How long are the video modules?

A: This course contains 10 modules that you can take at your own pace. Homework for each module may take between 1-2 hours, depending on the module. The course contains 90 minutes of pre-recorded, curated videos in addition to multiple bonuses that you need to get your start as a Medical Expert Witness.

Q: When can I expect to make the money back from investing in this course?

A: Hourly rates for Medical Experts are generally in the range between $300-1000 plus a retainer of $1200-$4000. Physician Experts’ rates are generally higher than non-physician Medical Experts.  This course will likely pay for itself with your first case, often with the retainer alone.

Q: How is this course different from others out there?

A: Many of the courses out there are taught by attorneys. This course is taught by a physician who is a Medical Expert herself and is also the Founder & Medical Director for MED LAW Consulting, a Witness Referral Service, which means that she has matched hundreds of Medical Experts to attorneys. In this way, Amy has a unique viewpoint as an expert herself, and from the perspective of a hiring attorney.  The course is module based and pre-recorded which allows you to complete the steps at your own pace, and on your own time. Amy will also personally introduce you to a law/consulting firm once you successfully complete all course steps.

Q: Who is the right person to take this course?

A: This course is for any medical professional who has little to no Expert Witness experience. You need to be clinically active. You need to have time for nonclinical work and the ability to meet deadlines. You are a great teacher and writer. You want to earn more money to supplement your clinical work.

Q: Who is the Wrong Person to take this course?

A: If you are an experienced expert, or have taken another Beginner Expert Witness course, then this is not the right course for you. If you already have an LLC, understand the basics of expert witness work, have reviewed 4 or more cases and feel comfortable with the process, then this is NOT the course for you. 

If you are not clinically active or you have very thin skin, then Expert witness work may not be right for you. If you are too busy to complete tasks by a deadline, then you are too busy for an Expert Witness side gig at the current time.

Q: Do you have to be a physician to take this course?

A: While this course was recorded with physicians in mind, it can be taken by any medical professionals including dentists, pharmacists, podiatrists, veterinarians, nurse practitioners, or physician assistants who are interested in venturing into Medical Expert work. You will learn the basics to start your own Medical Expert firm which can be generalized to any profession.
