As some of you know, I’m the managing editor for a healthcare news site called Scrubs & Suits. In a recent Featured Member column, I profiled a doctor who has made a pretty amazing career for himself–and the part I personally found inspiring is how his blog launched a whole new dimension to his career.

The doc’s name is Russell Faust, and I have to say, I am very impressed with this guy, for a number of reasons–the primary one being that he has taken inspired action that has led to a significantly successful career.

Here’s a link to his personal story, and here’s just a quick rundown of his career achievements:

Dr. Faust is a physician executive who interprets technology and social media to a variety of audiences through keynotes, blog posts, articles, retreats, and workshops. He has been a medical school professor, an endowed chairman, chief medical officer, and president and EO of several organizations. He is:

Chief of Pediatric Otolaryngology, St. John Health System

  • Director, Pediatric ENT Center
  • Providence Park Hospital, Novi, Michigan

Adjunct Faculty, Oakland University School of Business

  • Executive MBA Program in Healthcare
  • Rochester, Michigan

Co-Founder & CEO

Founding Expert and Blogger

As you can see, this is one doctor who doesn’t let stereotypes or limits stand in his way. He follows his heart and his dreams, and that’s why he’s my person of the week.
