MD News Publisher / Independent Sales Professional

MD News is looking for Publisher/Sales Professionals, working in an Independent Contractor role.

MD News is the nation’s largest network of business and practice management publications in the United States, currently serving 40+ leading health care markets nationwide for a combined average circulation of over 180,000 copies per issue.

The Audience

MD News is delivered directly to each local physician’s office—and available in digital format online and iPad editions as well as with local eNewsletters, local websites, and other online/social media outlets, MD News reaches each market’s most highly influential audience. As key drivers of the local economy, physicians are responsible for generating referrals, purchasing new medical equipment and technology, and shaping other key decisions that have a direct impact on community health. According to the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, physicians influence almost every dollar spent in the $2.5 trillion U.S. healthcare industry, and their orders are directly responsible for 80% of healthcare spending.

MD News publishers are innovative, independent professionals who network with local/national medically related product/services providers, as well as local physicians, hospital executives, and other medically related community business leaders to drive revenue into their MD News publication through branded content and advertising sales.
