A few days ago, Tara Hunt over at HPG posted a slideshow she created for the 2009 Arizona Entrepreneurship Conference. It’s an abbreviated, interactive lesson in entrepreneurship packaged as a Q&A, and modeled after the quiz show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? It’s smart. It’s slick. It’s creative. It makes its point. It’s totally Tara; and it is one of the reasons why we should pay attention to her.
This got me thinking…instead of a static FAQ page, what if we made an FAQ for residents using this format? We can call it Who Wants to be a Resident? We could design the questions so they were of use to both potential residents, program coordinators, and even researchers. It would be interactive, playful, informative, and, dare I say, fun!
Potential questions might include differences between ‘intern’, ‘resident’, and ‘fellow’, or identifying the Association who defined the differences; most common salary range; university hosting most residents since 2000; university graduating most residents…age, gender, and so on. We could have some serious fun with it, and it would be pretty valuable since the answers would come from data Damon, Shantrie and I pulled together this year. (That data has never, ever before been collected, aggregated, and made available to the public btw. Ahem and thank you.)
What do you think? Worthwhile? Useful? Should I seek permission from the Rogue Lady?
Lay it out in the comments.
