Exploring a New Opportunity

Dr. Gretchen Green has been a diagnostic radiologist since 2006. She completed her medical degree at Brown University Medical School. She followed medical school with a residency in diagnostic radiology at Yale University School of Medicine and a Women’s Imaging Fellowship at Harvard Medical School.

Gretchen did not intend to become an expert witness. However, she was contacted by an attorney who needed an expert witness with a background matching Gretchen's. She agreed to work on that case and found that she really enjoyed the work. She cut her clinical work back and studied the field and honed her skills over the past five years.

Gretchen has served as an expert witness in dozens of cases for both plaintiff and defense attorneys. This enabled her to transition to part-time clinical work in 2016 and create more time for her family. She developed an online course devoted to becoming an expert witness called Expert Witness Start-Up School.

Become an Expert Witness

During our conversation,  you'll learn exactly what an expert witness does, why it is such a great side job and the potential income that can be produced. Then we’ll talk a bit about the course she has created for physicians who want to become an expert witness and quickly build their expert witness business.

Expert witness work helped me transition to part-time clinical work in 2016 and have more time with family and for myself. It enabled me to have financial freedom to design my best life. – Dr. Gretchen Green
