Frequently Asked Questions about Physicians Serving as Expert Witnesses

Q. Do I need to be a medical school professor or to have graduated from an Ivy League Medical School in order to be a successful medical expert witness?
A. No.  The vast majority of successful medical expert witnesses are neither academicians nor Ivy League graduates.

Q.  What are attorneys looking for in a physician expert witness?
A.  A knowledgeable professional who is responsive, easy to deal with and can communicate well both in writing and orally.

Q.  I only want to testify for defendants, can I do that?
A.  You can, but this would make you vulnerable to attack on cross-examination as being potentially biased.  The most credible and successful medical expert witnesses call cases like they see them and are available to both plaintiffs and defendants.

Q.  Do I need to keep practicing, or can I do medical expert witness work full time?
A.  That depends.  If you would like to testify in medical malpractice cases it is best that you maintain at least a part time practice.

Q.  Do I need to be board certified?
A.  Most successful physician expert witnesses are board certified.

Q.  Do I need an active medical license?
A. Yes.
