Journey of a Non Clinical Doctor
Editorial Guidance for Journey of a Non-Clinical Doctor


"Journey of a Non-Clinical Doctor" thankfully invites doctors engaged in non-clinical roles to contribute to the knowledge base and share their experiences by submitting blog posts. "Journey of a Non-Clinical Doctor" publishes articles that are based on the 3 core themes.

"Journey of famous non-clinical doctors" For this theme, contributions are welcomed on professional stories of the most successful non-clinical doctors. We define successful non-clinical doctors as those physicians who spent a major part of professional life in non-clinical roles and whose contributions to the society are unmatched. 

Objective parameters for this may include and are not limited to 1. State Awardees for the public service including both civilian and military honors; 2. Pioneers of new disciplines in a geographic location; 3. Awardees from notable scientific/professional bodies set-up by law; 4. Founders of healthcare-related organizations, public, private, or non-profit, that were later recognized for excellence in their field; 5. Inventors and Discoverers of notable scientific or technical ideas, theories, and products that changed the scientific thoughts and process for good.

"Work profile of non-clinical doctors" For this theme, contributions are welcomed on career options available in non-clinical roles in different industries and institutions, public, private, and non-profit. A detailed description of a role is desirable, along with examples of day-to-day activities involved. Peculiarities of the role based on personal experience shall be highlighted. Prospects of the role should be emphasized, if possible. The article should be designed in a manner that is helpful for young medicos who are evaluating non-clinical career options.

"Challenges faced by non-clinical doctors" For this theme, contributions are welcomed on the personal as well as professional challenges faced by a particular non-clinical role, or by all non-clinical roles, in general. Strategies to overcome those challenges must be mentioned to generate a solution-seeking article rather than merely a description of problem areas.
