Medical Director Needed For AED Program

Most AEDs require prescription

Selling The Position

When you have identified a qualified candidate, you may need to "sell" the position. While the duties of a medical director may be substantial, depending on the physician, the benefits to the physician are also many:

  • The physician gains the satisfaction of serving in a position requiring commitment and responsibility;

  • It is a way for the physician to be involved in a pro-active way in a community initiative which may save the life of a friend, relative, even patient.

  • It is a way for a physician to give something back to the community by supporting and championing a lifesaving initiative; and

  • Much of the administrative work involved in overseeing the program can be delegated, either to the program director or training coordinator.
