Creating Great Bios for Staff in Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Practices

When writing bios for staff of Orthopedic and Sports Medicine practices, we want to showcase that the staff is competent, knowledgeable, and friendly.

Include skills, training, education, certifications, work experience, languages, and something about why they love orthopedic and sports medicine patients.  That can be what got them interested in orthopedics, their favorite success story with a patient, or something personal that they feel comfortable sharing about their own sports experiences and how orthopedics played a role in that. 

For example, James became interested in orthopedics after a football injury in high school. The orthopedic surgeon and the rest of the team really helped John get back on the field and get back to living his life.

Some questions to get the creative process flowing:

  • Name as you’d like it listed
  • Title
  • Post-high school training and education?
  • Licenses or certifications?
  • Professional organizations that you are a member?
  • Any particular areas of clinical interest?
  • What made you want to work at this practice or with this doctor?
  • What do you love about caring for patients?
  • Is there something you wish you could tell every patient (and they would actually do) and why?
  • Do you speak any language other than English?
  • What is your favorite sport to play or watch?
  • Who is your favorite sports team?
  • What is your favorite exercise or stretch and why?

We are aiming for something like this: Meet Susan, our Orthopedic Physician Assistant. Susan joined OrthoPractice in 2009 because she had worked with Dr. Smith at the hospital and was impressed with how quickly his patients got better and his caring bedside manner. She loves helping post-operative patients get back to doing the things they love. A former college volleyball player, she also enjoys working with athletes to both prevent and treat injuries. When not at work, you can find Susan at a Texas Rangers game, spinning, or doing yoga.
