Ventrix Advertising, a leader in higher education media online, is teaming up with healthcare experts across the country to create EduMed, a website dedicated to helping students and young professionals find information about medical- and health-related education programs. We’re currently recruiting healthcare experts to review (and sometimes edit) career- and education-related content for accuracy. Each assignment will be a content page of ~2,500 words, it is written for a non-healthcare audience, and is mostly text-based. Examples include: “How to Become a Medical Assistant,” “RN-to-BSN bridge programs,” and “All About Dental Hygiene School.” This freelance position would be short-term at first, but could grow into something longer-term if both parties are happy with the work.
Responsibilities: Edit and/or comment on the accuracy of the information included. Provide direct suggestions on anything that’s wrong and/or incomplete. Answer any questions from an editor related to your feedback or specific recommendations/edits.
Experience: A current or former medical professional with detailed knowledge of one or more healthcare careers or education/training programs. Someone with experience reviewing web content is a plus.
Photo & bio needed: Our goal is to build a team of healthcare experts to create the best and most helpful website we can. To help achieve that goal, we’re asking for a short bio and a photo of you to include on our Expert Contributors page. And if you have a blog or website of your own, we’d be happy to promote your own work or business within your bio.
