SERMO is the #1 social network for doctors in the US and now globally.

It's the place to talk about real world medicine.
It’s the virtual doctors’ lounge.
It's the meeting of medical minds and hearts.
It’s the voice of physicians.

Why doctors love SERMO

“I can speak freely because I am anonymous. I don't have to worry about my words getting back to a hospital administrator.”

Why doctors love SERMO

“Being a semi-anonymous environment actually allows for more honest and useful advice and comments. I get enough daily BS, PC crap in real life. I don't need more in the virtual life.”

Why doctors love SERMO

“You can’t just Google medicine, you need a human source. We have to go beyond ‘cookbook’ medicine, and seek reasonable, experienced minds to think through difficult and diverse cases.”

Porqué a los médicos les encanta SERMO

"La medicina es divertida, cuando no interfieren múltiples terceras partes. Nos encanta la publicación de casos en SERMO... podemos ejercer la medicina a pesar de que no cobremos por ello."

Why doctors love SERMO

“If it was real life, we’d all hang out.”

Why doctors love SERMO

“Medicine is fun, when it’s without the intrusion of multiple third parties. We love posting cases on SERMO...we get to practice medicine even if we don’t get paid for it.”

Why doctors love SERMO

“Doctors don't have the time to come to a real doctors' lounge any more. On SERMO we can ask questions and share our lives and frustrations. Whenever we feel stressed out, we come to get support and find it. Any time of the day.”

Why doctors love SERMO

“I actually shared a medical mistake for the benefit of my peers on SERMO...but would not have done so if I was identified.”

Why doctors love SERMO

“Regulators are forcing us to comply with rules and docs hardly get a voice. We’re made to feel isolated and alone. It’s overwhelming but SERMO is THE place where we can finally talk and feel like we are not alone. We know that we’re all in the same boat.”

Why doctors love SERMO

“I think SERMO has nailed it. If I want to read a clinical discussion, I can do that. If I want to read something funny, I can do that. If I want to get into politics, I can do that. If I need help with a patient, I have a place to do that.”

Why doctors love SERMO

“Had I not read a post on SERMO, I would not have nailed the diagnosis.”

Why doctors love SERMO

“These days doctors are super busy and don’t have time to stop what they are doing and find a colleague with the appropriate expertise.”
