About Dana Corriel:
Dana is a board-certified internist and founder of SoMeDocs (Doctors on Social Media), online platforms where physicians network, learn how to build effective online brands, and find resources for marketing their voices, messages, and businesses, in order to move the needle in healthcare. SoMeDocs has helped fuel many physician thought leaders, many of whom have successfully gone on to write books, make appearances in mainstream media, and accomplish feats doctors never thought could open career doors. The collaborations that have been sparked from SoMeDocs serve as a testament to the power of online connection in the healthcare field.
Dr. Corriel has earned the title of Top Ten Internists to Follow on Twitter in 2018 by Medical Economics and Top 20 Social Media Physician Influencers by Medscape in 2019. She has appeared in major publications including the LA Times, Gastro & Endo News, MDMagazine, The Boston Globe, Huff Post, Medscape, and EP News, and served as guest faculty at conferences, including a yearly guest faculty position at the Harvard Healthcare Writers’ Conference. She now hosts Summits for healthcare professional development through SoMeDocs.
Dr. Corriel’s specialty is physician branding, online strategy, and unique content creation/marketing. In addition to running the SoMeDocs space, she’s currently offers consultation packages and actual content creation for doctors who want to stand out online, including unique video series, courses, and landing pages. Her dream is not only to inspire professionals to innovate by thinking outside the box, but to play an instrumental role in facilitating a connection between health experts and the general public. When we strategize through using the online medium, we can make positive progress, even in healthcare.
