Dox Foundation summaries are proactively shared with all Doximity members. As America’s largest professional healthcare network, Doximity reaches more than 1 million licensed clinicians, including 70% of U.S. physicians. Your piece may be seen in the Doximity newsfeed and has a high likelihood of being shared in weekly emails to our members. Approved mission trips and recaps are also listed on the Dox Foundation website which is visible to the public.
Your summary should be between 500 - 700 words and provide a highlight reel of your time abroad. Please be sure that any stories you share about patients are HIPAA-compliant by omitting all names and identifying information. Do not submit an advertisement or anything vitriolic in nature.
Your trip will have its own page on the Foundation site. Your project proposal will already be included as a tee up. As a reminder, the project proposal has three sections: project description, population served and expected impact. The trip recap and photos are in addition to the information you listed in the proposal. Some guidelines:
We do! Below are a just a few of the fantastic write ups physicians have sent us about their mission trips.
No problem. Log on to the Dox Foundation website using your Doximity username and password. From the upper right corner, just click on your name. There you will find your project(s).
We suggest submitting a minimum of 5 photos and at least one selfie. Please feel free to submit more if you have them available. Photos with people as subjects really help tell the story.
Think “travel magazine” - try to capture the essence of the mission through faces, procedures and surroundings. If your photos are taken on your phone, please take a horizontal image.
* We assume you have permission from those in the photo to use their likeness
Yes! Please include a 50-60 word short bio of yourself that we may include at the end of each trip summary. If you were working with other U.S. physicians, please include their names so that we can tag them in the article.
* We reserve the right to edit and re-title your piece.
