Medical education is changing and so too are the types of publications with high impact. No longer do we live in a world where traditional journal publications are the only meaningful contribution to academia and to our specialty. The “non-traditional” publications include podcasts, educational videos, and blog posts. Just like journal articles, these can be done very well with thorough research, attention to detail, and even peer review. They can have broad reach, inspire change, and initiate conversation.
Curriculum Vitae Citation
Many people are uncertain how to cite this work on their curriculum vitae (CV). The structure of a CV will vary from one individual to the next, but let me share how I recommend citing audio and video publications.
First of all, cite them under the category of “Publications.” Personally, I have subcategories for “Print,” “Audio,” and “Video.” If you don’t consider them publications, then why would your administrators?
Below are suggested formats and examples for audio and video publications to credit your work. Let’s build a culture of academic merit with multimedia publications.
