The Doctors Lounge is one of the oldest online communities supplying medical resources for physicians, medical students and allied clinical professionals. It was founded April 2000, by two physicians, Dr. Tamer Fouad and Dr. Yasser Mokhtar, who aspired to create an online medical community that would provide its visitors with free medical consultation. One of the things I like about this community is that it clearly distinguishes advertising from editorial content with a special seal and any sponsored content is denoted as such. Since its inception, its members have written more than 10,000 medical articles and answered more than 30,000 medical/health questions.
Why a blog post about the Doctors Lounge? It’s another avenue for your physicians to distribute medical content and build the stature of your organization’s brand. Registering is easy. You simply go to the website and fill out a Medical Volunteer Registration Form. Once accepted, your physician can review articles, contribute content, and participate in the medical forum. There are also advertising opportunities within the site.
Doctors Lounge is another online resource that healthcare marketers should know about. So check it out and see what you think.
