Jobmap.io: Emergency Medicine jobs on an interactive map with awesome data points (school rankings, median income...)

Emergency Medicine jobs for physicians

My good friend (Puneet Chopra) and I just launched Jobmap.io - an interactive map with Emergency Medicine jobs, listing every hospital in the United States. We've taken a different approach to the job search process.

It turns out that most groups are always hiring, or at minimum always wanting to receive more CVs. In fact, there is so much constant flux in Emergency Medicine, that there is no way a recruiter can update a bunch of different ads on different job boards constantly. It's just too fragmented.

We realized that what Emergency Medicine needs as a specialty is a single site where every hospital is listed and physicians can easily connect with the recruiter for that site. Additionally, it would be very helpful to have data filters and points to help physicians decide their career options.

Here's some of the data points we've added and why:


  • Door-to-doctor - We think this is a good measure of the overall functionality of the site
  • Discharge length-of-stay - ditto
  • Median household income - Give you a sense for the community
  • School rankings - Critically important if you have kids and are thinking of moving to the area
  • ED volume - obvious, but critically missing from most job board filters
Let us know what you think of Jobmap.io. We know that it's not super pretty or fast (yet), but right now our goal is to get the proof-of-concept off the ground and get feedback.

How To Automatically Upload a Zoho File Attachment to Dropbox from Zoho Creator using Dropbox API v2 and Zoho postUrl

I'm an idiot, so this took about 6 hours for me to figure out, but apparently many people have not been able to figure this out, and I could not find a complete and working solution online anywhere. If you want to be able to upload a file to Dropbox from Zoho Creator, you have to create a custom function like below (here I called the function "Dropbox", under namespace "Create"). In the function, the ID is being passed to it from the underlying form entry. void Create.Dropbox(int id) { url = "https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/save_url"; headers = {"Authorization":"Bearer XXXXX","Content-Type":"application/json"}; data = {"path":"/FFFF/TTTT.XXX","url":"YYYY"}; datastring = data.toString(); response = postUrl(url,datastring,headers,false); } ... where XXXXX is your secret Dropbox Token, and YYYY is the url of the file you are uploading, and FFFF is the Dr

How to track CME - guest post published on Knack blog

I am happy to announce that my detailed post on how I built CMElog.org using Knack , Zapier, Dropbox, Mailchimp, Mandrill, and Google Drive has been published on the Knack blog: In this post, I dive into details of how to use Zapier to build automated services, like CMElog.org, in which medical providers' continuing medical education credits can be automatically extracted, identified, copied for back up, organized, and accessed.
