It’s a noisy world and medical educators want to be heard. We all have a “voice” inside of us, something to say or teach. The issue is how to get that voice out to the rest of the world so that everyone else can benefit. It’s wonderful to give a presentation locally or effectively moderate a small group discussion, but it’s even more powerful to share that knowledge and skill with the rest of the world. What’s even worse is that many in healthcare have no sense of personal branding/digital footprint creation, and in fact many think that discussing personal branding is taboo. The presentations within this 1/2 day event and the interactive portion are designed to give medical educators a sense of what they need to do to develop their “voice” and how to utilize it to help themselves and others. Attendees will receive training in podcasting, digital footprint creation, personal branding, and how to amplify their message on media platforms.
