With an extensive travel schedule to academies and conferences, it seemed to make sense to connect many of the people I meet to a group dedicated to emerging medical technology.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 8, 2008 - Medical Device Guru, an on-
line forum for healthcare professionals announced today the 1,000,000 hit to the site, which focuses on emerging medical technology news and careers.
The website, MedicalDeviceGuru.com provides timely information consolidated from numerous sources. Topics include Orthopedics, Cardiovascular, Imaging and Radiology, Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology and Medical Robotics as well as discussion groups on a variety of subjects.
The site also contains over 1000 articles on the management of careers - from Interviewing to Resignations, Counter Offers to Surviving a Lay Off. The Medical Device Interview Prep Guide found on the site is a 21 page downloadable document with valuable resources for preparing for an interview with a healthcare company.
From bubble to nanotechnology, 3D Imaging and Navigation, and bleeding edge research, the site covers a range of topics from both academic publications to up-to-the minute news releases on medical companies engaged in improving the quality of life for patients around the globe.
Medical Device and Biomed engineers, Quality Assurance and Regulatory Professionals (QA/RA) and medical sales and marketing professionals have sub-forums specific to their interests.
Paula Rutledge, President of Legacy MedSearch, a retained recruitment firm and one of the sponsors of the site, said "we decided to participate in the site due to the overwhelming need to provide relevant data to our clients and timely research resources to candidates. The data we review daily to stay current in the marketplace has a real value to those in the medical industry - so it made sense to provide the data to both our client companies and potential job-seekers."
News is consolidated from RSS feeds, abstracts, news services, company press releases, online data, as well as from original content obtained from medical conferences such as RSNA, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, Medical Innovation Summit, and nearly a dozen similar conferences attended by Legacy MedSearch.
"We have recently added a "Medical Device Guru" group in LinkedIn to further network professionals in emerging medical technology," added Mrs. Rutledge, who can also be reached through her LinkedIn Profile.
