Social Networks For Doctors
While marketing your practice to existing and potential patients is key to growing your business, connecting with other healthcare professionals is just as important. Connecting with healthcare practitioners in your field is important for staying up to date on industry news and advancements in your field. The more you're networking with your peers, the more you'll hear about new products and procedures to better your practice. Connecting with healthcare practitioners outside of your field (and especially in your city) can be very helpful for references.
While Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are going to provide a significant number of connections, we've done some research on niche social networks that are specifically meant to connect healthcare practitioners. Here's what we've found:
Doctors Global is where practicing and employed physicians across the world collaborate on complicated cases and exchange opinions about medical developments and incidents. The community is empowered to think global and act local by initiating discussions at various Medical Hubs.
