Benefits for Our Selected Physicians
The International Association of Internists was founded on the idea that personal achievement is deserving of recognition and reward. Through a variety of benefits offered, The IAI offers our physicians ways to improve their business through state of the art networking and marketing capabilities. As a member of the International Association of Internists, you are not only privy to recognition amongst consumers and your peers, but also the variety of benefits below, assisting you in your continued success.
"The Leading Physicians of The World"
Doctors of Excellence
Upon acceptance into the IAI, members will be featured in our world renowned publication, The Leading Physicians of the World
. This book not only serves as a reference and a guide for medical professionals and consumers globally, but is also a symbol of status and achievement within the medical community. Featured physicians will display their professional biographies on a full color page in the Internal Medicine Section where we will highlight their achievements, education and offered services. Inclusion into The Leading Physicians of the World
is not only a testament to your success, but is a way to showcase your accomplishments and separate yourself from other physicians in your area.
With the internet being used increasingly by consumers, it is becoming imperative that physicians build a name for themselves online. As a member of the IAI your professional and educational biography will be featured in the top pages of Google, displaying your different areas of expertise, contact information and a link to your website. This will ensure that upon entering your name into a search engine, the results will feature information which will spark interest in your services, and drive business to your practice. This third party endorsement not only validates your credentials and achievements but will also drive traffic to your website and maximize your exposure on the web.
With thousands of other leading physicians in every specialty from around the world, The IAI is a great place to find colleagues and friends from the past. Upon setting up your profile you will have access to other members based on similarities such as: medical school, residency, affiliations, specialty etc.
Through our state of the art online networking you will be able to chat with other members from all over the globe. It is also a place to share information, and get feedback from other physicians. Here you can create discussions, set up live meetings with certain groups, or open up discussions for other specialties to join in.
With the goal of guiding consumers to the top internists in their area, the IAI has created findatopdoc.com, and 1-866-664-DOCS. Upon acceptance into the IAI, our select group of top internists will be listed both online, and through our 24 hour call center. When a consumer calls up or performs a search online, our IAI members' contact information will be given out. With numerous search fields based on proximity, insurance coverage, and requested service, these two means of searches have proven extremely beneficial to both patients and our members.
Direct Mail Promotions
Increasing business is a common goal that many of our members share. To help our leading physicians do so, we have initiated direct mail programs which advertise our member's services and promotions. With access to millions of consumer lists, reaching out and getting new business has never been easier.
Personalized Online Question and Answer forums for Consumers in Your Area
Many consumers turn to the Web for answers regarding their health. IAI has created a way for people to get answers to those questions and increase your business at the same time. We have found that patients like to feel comfortable with their doctors, and through the exchange of question and answers, rapport is built and appointments are usually made within 24 hours.
Let’s say a consumer has a question on cholesterol. This person will go on our website, enter their zip code, and select the specialty internal medicine. This question will then be forwarded to the Top Internist closest to that zip code, and can be answered at that doctor’s leisure. Each question is available for 48 hrs, and if unanswered, it will be forwarded to the next closest physician.
Once answered, the consumer will automatically be forwarded that doctors contact information and professional biography. This is a great tool which increases a patient’s knowledge on their health, but also brings business into your office.
Honorary Wall Plaque
Solid wood and laser engraved, the IAI wall plaque is a personal tribute to the success you have attained throughout your career. It acknowledges you as a leading physician in your area, and is a reminder of your great achievements. Best displayed in a place where your patients can see, the IAI Honorary Wall Plaque is sure to be a great conversation piece.
Certificate of Recognition
Upon acceptance into the International Association of Internists, members are awarded a Certificate of Recognition. Each certificate is personalized and contains our platinum seal of authenticity. Beautifully designed, and an enhancement to office décor, the Certificate of Recognition serves as a third party endorsement of your medical, personal and professional achievements.
With costs continually rising to run a business, IAI offers a discount network to their members offering price breaks on numerous office supplies and brand names. Members are also offered discounts on travel for your next vacation.
