Doximity

Like LinkedIn, but only for doctors, Doximity lets physicians consult and collaborate with peers who may have expertise they need to treat difficult cases. On their profiles physicians include their training, insurance they accept, languages they speak, papers they’ve written, clinical trials they’ve conducted and more—all of which is searchable. And it’s no wonder about 1,000 doctors a week are joining the network—they can get paid for being there. That’s because Doximity also connects its users with market research firms that need expert input on questions about things like new medical devices that are in development. Doximity members can get paid $250-$500 an hour to hand over their opinions on such matters.
