Imagine knowing everything you need to be a successful Medical Expert Witness

And having the confidence to know how to uphold the highest forensic standards at all times.

Yes – you can learn how!

You may have heard that being an Expert Witness as a medical professional is an interesting and lucrative side gig. You know that you can use what you already know in your medical career to earn extra money as a Medical Expert.

It can feel really overwhelming. You may have already been approached for expert jobs in the past and ignored them because you didn’t know what questions to ask. Or you may have always been interested in Expert Witness work but do not know where to start in order to pursue cases.

I’ve pulled together training videos, worksheets, handouts, and more to help you become the BEST medical expert that you can be.

If you find yourself ready to explore a Medical Expert career but are overwhelmed by the pieces of it all then you are in luck. The time to learn about forensic work is now!

INTRODUCING:

BASICS FOR BECOMING A MEDICAL EXPERT WITNESS COURSE

If you’re a Medical Professional looking to make some extra cash as an Expert Witness on the side from your primary job taking care of patients…

…you’ve already heard that if you can get medical expert witness work it is one of the most lucrative side gigs out there.

Here’s what you might not know.

Even if you manage to get contacted by attorneys for cases as a Medical Expert, actually doing Expert Witness analysis well isn’t as obvious as you may think.

LEARN THE BEST PRACTICES FOR MEDICAL EXPERT WORK

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. 

CREATE YOUR OWN SMALL BUSINESS ENTITY

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. 

MASTER LEGAL JARGON NECESSARY FOR MEDICAL EXPERT ANALYSIS

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.

CHOOSE WHICH TYPES OF CASES YOU WANT TO TAKE ON

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.

LEARN HOW TO BREAK INTO THE FORENSIC WORLD

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. 

Being an Expert is rewarding work that you can do as an add-on to your primary job. What do Experts say is their favorite part of this side gig??

—Surprise, it’s NOT all about the money.

IT’S INTERESTING WORK

As an expert you may be asked to review the facts for matters that have been brought to court. That the case is part of the court system means that it is not your everyday set of facts. I have seen some pretty eye-opening things!

EXPERT WORK ALLOWS YOU TO TEACH

As a Medical Expert you are there to educate the judge and the jury about the facts. If you are a good teacher who can explain technical terms in ways that lay people can easily understand, then you will enjoy this aspect and attorneys will come back to you time and again.

CASE ANALYSIS IS FUN

Do you enjoy looking at complex problems and then simplifying them? If you enjoy this type of analysis, then you will like working with attorneys on Medical Expert cases.

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.

Have you talked to a trusted colleague about how to be a Medical Expert? Awesome.

But what the heck do you do next?

The fact is most medical professionals who start taking cases as Expert Witnesses don’t formally learn how to be an Medical Expert

Medical professionals are incredibly busy taking care of their patients and think that they do not have to invest in a course to properly learn about this. They figure that they are intelligent and educated people who can figure it out on their own.  

 

Here’s why that can be a massive problem:

Your medical training does not teach you how to approach a legal case.  I have seen extremely intelligent and experienced physicians make crucial mistakes as Experts that have had devastating consequences for their medical-legal reputation and for the case. For example, the surgeon who was asked to opine on one issue, but did not understand what was being asked, and answered the wrong legal question–the attorney then had to hire an additional expert who understood the legal nuances.  Or the internist who put her opinions in an email without being asked and ticked off the attorney who did not want a written opinion. Unfortunately making simple mistakes can result in attorneys being upset with your performance and sharing that with their colleagues.  In the medical-legal field, your reputation is everything.

3 Reasons Most Medical Professionals Who Want to Take on Legal Cases Generally Fail To Have A Successful Expert Witness Side Gig.

(and how to make sure that you actually do)

REASON 01

DOCTORS THINK THEY ARE TOO BUSY TO TAKE ANOTHER COURSE.

I get it! They are busy seeing patients and the last thing that they want to do is to take on another project or course.

But the truth is that if you learn how to approach Expert Witness work from a systematic perspective, that will save you lots of time in the long run. You will learn exactly what is expected of you to avoid mistakes that cost you extra time and so that all the time you spend is reimbursable.

REASON 02

MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS DON’T WANT TO INVEST IN THEIR NON-MEDICAL SIDE GIG.

They think that all money should go into their medical education. They have already invested so much in their medical training.

But medical training does not teach you what you need to be a business owner or an expert. In order to be successful, you need to treat your forensic career as a career, and invest the time and money to learn the ins and outs to do it well. 

REASON 03

DOCTORS WANT TO GET EXPERT CASES FIRST, THEN INVEST IN EXPERT WITNESS TRAINING.

They worry that they will invest in the course and no one will hire them.They question why they would take a course now if they can wait until they are hired by an attorney and then take the course at that time. That is not the correct order of progression. 

The beauty of this course is that you can take it at any time! But to get all the benefits, you should take it early on in your Expert Witness career. You will learn about marketing strategies, best practices in attorney intake phone calls, and how to choose which cases to take. If you have already accepted a case, then you miss the benefits of these lessons

As an experienced physician, I have done plenty of quality of care chart reviews. Without knowing how the legal system works, it seemed daunting for me to venture into medical expert witness work. Dr. Fogelman’s expertise, which she summarized well in this course, has enabled me to begin professional building my expert witness practice.

     F.A.Q.

    How long are the video modules?

    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 an Medical Expert Witness. 

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

    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.

    How is this course different from others out there?

    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.

    Who is the right person to take this course?

    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.

    Who is the wrong person to take this course?

    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. 

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

    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.
