Freelance MD has become a great place for physicians to learn more about ways they can leverage their medical training in order to advance their careers. This web hub is a great distance-learning tool to connect like-minded physicians and promote learning.
The live/physical version of Freelance MD is our Medical Fusion Conference which occurs every November in Las Vegas. At the Medical Fusion Conference we bring together experts from a variety of niche areas-- many of whom write for Freelance MD-- in order to network and connect person to person. It's an event that only happens once a year, so we eagerly promote it here on Freelance MD with the hope that our readers will pencil the event into their busy schedules. We want to meet our Freelance MD members and we know you'll benefit from the speakers we've assembled.
Over the past few weeks we've reorganized our Medical Fusion Conference website to make it more interactive and give potential participants an idea of what happens at this innovative event. We recently added a blog to the Medical Fusion Conference website and we've posted a few lecture clips from past Medical Fusion Conferences.
Check out the videos below to get an idea as to what goes on at the Medical Fusion Conference. We'll be posting more lecture clips in the near future, so stay tuned to Freelance MD.
