The Benefits of Speaking at Medical Conferences
February 21, 2018 by eMedEvents

Speaking at a medical conference has many benefits for you as a healthcare professional. It will help you share your knowledge, improve your credibility, increase referrals, and open opportunities. Most importantly, perhaps, is the opportunity to contribute to the advancement in your field and improve patient care. Although you may be one of the many who suffer from glossophobia, it is worth pushing through your fear of public speaking to present at an upcoming medical conference.

Speaking at medical conferences is a great way to share your research, your experience, and your expertise. Your insight can reach a large audience, not only at the conference, but also through promotions online and published proceedings. This is a great way to improve your credibility, raise your profile, and be seen as an expert in your field. Most medical conference organizers promote their speakers online before and during the conference. You can gain followers on social media through this and also through conference hashtags. You may have the opportunity to be featured in press releases and interviews. All this good exposure will help create opportunities and build networks. Once you are regarded as a leader in your field and a great resource for information, people will continue to reach out to you to help answer questions, brainstorm complex patients, and refer more patients to your practice. If your presentation goes well, you may be given more speaking invitations in the future.

Once you take the first step and agree to speak at a medical conference, more paths and opportunities will open up. If you are not ready for a solo presentation, plan to co-present with a colleague, or agree to take part in a discussion as a panelist or moderator. As you get more comfortable, your confidence will improve and your communication will improve as well. Better communicators make better managers and provide better patient care which is ultimately every healthcare providers goal.
