About Clinical Interest/Keywords
Clinical interests/keywords (health conditions, medical procedures and other health topics that may not be explicitly inferred from a provider's medical specialty) assist prospective patients in searching/filtering Rochester-area healthcare professionals based on health conditions, medical procedures and healthcare topics of particular interest or concern. Clinical interests/keywords are generally not routine health conditions/medical procedures normally associated with or implied by a provider's medical specialty, rather clinical interests/keywords are conditions/procedures/topics that are of particular interest to a provider by virtue of ad hoc training, clinical research or practice experience.
About Provider Professional Profile
The provider professional profile is a brief narrative synopsis (1–3 paragraphs) including educational and training background, memberships in professional associations, career highlights and should elaborate/expand/support clinical interests/keywords selected. Rochester Health suggests each clinical interest/keyword chosen be referenced in some capacity in the provider professional profile as practicality and brevity allows. The provider profile is not per se a curriculum vitae rather the profile is intended to be a brief introduction/overview for prospective patients.
