Harvard Medical School and the Discovery Channel have teamed up to offer first-of-its-kind media training conference for physicians.
About a year ago, John Whyte, MD, vice president for continuing medical education at Discovery Channel, introduced himself to me and said, "Discovery Channel and Harvard Health Publications should host a joint conference for doctors who want to take their careers to the next level."
What seemed like a bit of a wild idea at first has become a reality, and the conference titled Creating the Brand Called Dr. You: Media Training Boot Camp for Doctors will be held at the Discovery Channel global headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland. When I visited John at Discovery Channel, it was truly an amazing place to be, and I think it's the perfect location for this course!
Doctors (and other professionals) who take this all-inclusive course will come away with:
- Live TV training
- Teleprompter experience
- Radio coaching
- Professional headshot
- Strategies to improve an online platform
- And much more!
This is a first time ever offering, and we're not sure if we'll do it again. There are only 100 slots for attendees, so we expect it to fill up fast. Therefore, if you are interested in attending, check out the website, and I hope to see you there!
