Over the past few years, iMedicalApps has become the definitive publication on mobile medical technology. We’ve been in the New York Times, Wired, various academic journals, the Brookings Institute and a slew of other publications (iMedicalApps.com/about).
Our Editors have been recognized as being at the frontier of mobile technology– and publishing on iMedicalApps has enabled Editors to flourish in their private and academic careers.
We’re looking to extend these types of opportunities to a few health care professionals who have a good grasp of mobile medicine and technology.
We want to add an additional three Editors to our current staff — two for iOS and one for the Android platform. You need to be a medical professional, have very strong writing skills, and you need to be able to allocate time to writing on a weekly basis.
Interested? Read on for more details.
What you get from this?
- Tremendous resume builder. Our Editors have often stated how being involved with iMedicalApps was the most discussed part of their interviews for residency/ fellowship /academic appointments /consulting jobs. It clearly differentiates you from your peers.
- Become a legend in mobile technology. Our editors have given interviews to news publications all over the world and have established themselves as experts in the field.
- One on one tutoring /mentoring with the Editor-in-Chief and Managing editor of iMedicalApps
- Ability to make connections in the mobile eco-system—our practicing Physician writers have been able to establish themselves at the forefront of mobile medicine. They have had the opportunity to attend TED talks and other conferences free of charge due to their affiliation with iMedicalApps.
- Free medical apps — medical apps can be expensive, and we are able to provide them to our writers for free
- Fun experiences— medicine can be boring at times — but being a part of the iMedicalApps writing team definitely is not.
- Letters of recommendation — we’re happy to write letters of recommendation for Editors who have been with the publication for at least one year.
- A small amount of monetary compensation
What we’re looking for
- We’re looking to add two iOS editors and one Android editor.
- Ability to allocate 4 to 7 hours a week to writing (producing one app review a week in addition to another piece). We’re all medical professionals, and we all know how much time medicine takes — so if you have a hard time managing your time efficiently, then this isn’t for you.
- Our Editors are capable of working 80 hour weeks while still being able to put in time for iMedicalApps, and this is the type of commitment we’re looking for.
- Medical professional filling the following category: Practicing Physician, Resident Physician, medical student. Practicing Physicians and residents will get preference. If you do not fill this category but feel you can contribute we will still read your application.
- We have a strict conflict of interest policy (stronger than the New England Journal of Medicine) — so if you create medical apps, consult for medical app companies, then you cannot be an Editor.
- One year commitment is required.
The ideal candidate is someone with excellent writing skills and a tech enthusiast — someone who uses mobile medicine in their current workflow for clinical or educational use.
