Doc2doc, a site we developed while I was providing management and UXD/IA consultancy for the BMJ last year is looking great now… busy, popular and it seems, making a real contribution to professional community building among health workers in the UK and beyond.
” >What is doc2doc?
doc2doc is a free and easy to use online doctors community.
doc2doc has a range of tools to help you network with other doctors on a professional and social level. On our clinical forums you can discuss interesting or puzzling cases and discuss any aspect of medicine. You can also create your own forum and build a community around your own interests or place of work. You can find people you work with, used to work with or want to get to know through our people search.
