Unlike other online medical communities, theMednet is not a chat forum or a discussion board, but rather an up to date knowledge base of clinical best practices for situations that are not clearly addressed by guidelines, published literature, and textbooks. Through a Q&A format, expert analysis of evidence-based information, and experiential insights should also accelerate the adoption of research into patient care.
If you have a question, start by searching our archives using the search bar at the top of the screen. Members have access to every question and answer ever posted, which is why every question has the potential to help thousands of patients. If you can’t find your question, ask it! Once we receive a new question, a physician-moderator will find the perfect expert in our network to answer it. You’ll be notified via email when the answer is posted.
theMednet is a physician-only platform, currently open only to board certified or eligible MD/DOs and trainees in the US. Specialties include Oncology. Stay tuned for launches in additional specialties in 2022!
theMednet was initially self-funded by Nadine and Samir prior to their receiving a number of grants from organizations like the National Science Foundation, the SWOG Hope Foundation, and the Bonnie Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. More recently, theMednet has done limited-time sponsorships with industry partners to support special educational programs, such as NEJM Journal Clubs. All questions continue to come solely from our physician community and experts are not aware of the identity of the sponsor to remain unbiased. In cases of controversial topics, we try to recruit experts with varying opinions. If Q&A resulted from a sponsored program, it is disclosed on the site and no physicians are paid to participate. No physician user data is ever provided back to our sponsors.
