Before we entice you with a compelling proposition, let’s first give a shout out and provide credit where credit is due. For the past five years, Dr. Wesley D. Jackson has been the Alberta Doctors’ Digest columnist behind Dr. Gadget. He has researched and written dozens of stories about medical technology and how you can leverage the benefits in your practice. He has been both visionary and practical.

So we are very sorry to announce that Dr. Jackson is ready to hand over the reins of the Dr. Gadget column to another capable AMA member.

AMA President, Dr. Alison M. Clarke, offers these kind words to Dr. Jackson: “Your columns have been enjoyable and educational, and have added so much to the publication. I want to thank you most sincerely, on behalf of the Alberta Medical Association and your many readers, for your time, commitment and passion.” All of us here at Alberta Doctors’ Digest and the entire AMA share Dr. Clarke’s sentiments.

So what’s next? Well, Dr. Gadget is a very popular column, so we’re looking to fill some big shoes. If you are an AMA member – and more than just a little bit geeky – we would like to hear from you.

We are searching for a writer who can commit to six stories per year according to predetermined deadlines. We provide an honorarium for each story, but the biggest benefit is that writing for ADD is a fun opportunity to make a contribution to your profession – helping other physicians in Alberta become more efficient and effective through your thought leadership in technology.

Interested? Please send us your bio and one or two short writing samples. We’ll keep this outreach going until we find the right writer, so please ping us ASAP.
