    I haven't seen job descriptions in publications, but in different fields that may be different. – Dirk Oct 2 '16 at 1:22

    By "job description", do you mean your affiliation? – O. R. Mapper Oct 2 '16 at 2:08
  • yes my affiliation – Aalaa Elsadek Oct 2 '16 at 12:53

Write your affiliation similar to how you'll do it with a university.

First Last
[Designation,] Dept., Institution

If your hospital does not split members into departments, then Dept. part can be omitted.


Aaron Stone
Neurosurgeon, XYZ Clinic

Cathy Miller
Researcher, Cancer Research Lab, BCD Hospital

Greg Thompson
Cryogenics, GHI Health Institute

Note that it is not always necessary to include your designation (job description), unless the publisher asks for it.

  • so this would be the possible form first last name otolaryngology department, hospital name, city, country??? – Aalaa Elsadek Oct 2 '16 at 11:31
  • @AalaaElsadek Yes. The city and country may not be necessary in most cases. – Ébe Isaac Oct 2 '16 at 15:09
