There are a limited number of providers accepted into the program and once it's full, that's it. There simply won't be any way to get into the program.We promote the program with a monthly E-Newsletter that goes out to all of the residency and fellowship programs in the country(4500+). We're also heavily involved in social media (primarily Linkedin & Twitter...follow us @mdpreferred). I personally am an active member of every healthcare group on Linked In and do a good deal of promotion there. We maintain our own healthcare group, "Networking for Healthcare Professionals", which allows our members to network with both physicians, physician recruiters and fellow MDP members. Then of course we have a daily blog for which all of our members have an open invitation to submit articles. We've recently established a partnership with MedMonthly (www.medmonthly.com), which is a major healthcare publication distributed to hospitals and practices all over the country and we're doing monthly cross promotions with them. We're also currently in talks to partner with a company that distributes about 12 of the major medical journals and we should be finalizing everything with them this coming week.
The only cost to the program is an annual administrative fee of $25 per month, billed quarterly, which goes towards marketing costs. The billing cycle runs from the date you come into the program. Most of our revenue comes from our national sponsors and our sister company, Medical Match, which is a physician job board. We're in business to serve the healthcare community, so we're not trying to make a big monetary gain from our individual providers.Hope this information helps.
