SERMO, a leading social network for doctors (with nearly 470,000 members in seven countries), has just announced its latest international expansion.
The move in question, we’re told, opens the platform’s doors to 260,000 Mexican and 232,000 Spanish doctors.
SERMO is the largest global social network exclusively for physicians available now in Australia, Canada, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, the UK and the US.
SERMO is a unique resource for doctors serving as a place to consult with hundreds of thousands of peers from around the world on patient cases (medical crowdsourcing). Doctors have the option to share their identity or remain anonymous creating a safe place for authentic discussions, virtual learning, asking for help and providing insight.
“Before SERMO, doctors did not have a virtual channel to collaborate with peers across borders,” said Peter Kirk, CEO of SERMO. “With differing medical practices around the globe and lots of remote areas where there are a low number of specialists, the ability to exchange medical wisdom with speed and security in a doctors-only social network is highly valuable and potentially life-saving for patients. SERMO provides instant access to doctors in nearly100 specialties and subspecialties.”
