Privacy Policy, Disclosures, and Disclaimers

Before I became a clinician, I worked in a law firm that made its living off of people who forgot to put their disclaimers out there. Let’s see if I learned anything.

ModernMedEd.com is an independently owned and operated website intended for medical professionals and students enrolled in a healthcare program. Our goal with this site is to provide inspiration and resources for PA’s, NP’s, MD’s, DO’s, PharmD’s, PT’s, and other clinicians so they can advance their education and professional standing.

As the site grows, we anticipate most of the content remaining free. However, consulting and editorial services are only available for hire. We do hope that the time and effort that we’ve expended to build and maintain the site does also become a source of profit. This may occur when advertisers pay to place their ads on the site, through affiliate marketing campaigns if a reader clicks on a particular link and makes a purchase on the affiliate site, or through commissions if readers sign up for paid courses or events through a sponsored link in an article. To be clear, this adds no cost to the reader.

All information provided on this site is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional, financial, medical, or legal advice.

If you’re interested in advertising, feel free to contact us here or at Jordan@ModernMedEd.com

We hope you continue to enjoy the free content on the site. Thank you so much for being part of the Modern MedEd community.

Best,
