Doctrs.com is the newest addition to my list of biomedical community sites (containing 34 items now). It’s an exclusive social net for physicians that was founded by Michael Kamleitner and Lukas Zinnagl in 2008, according to the FAQ page.
Such a community has to fight two major problems:
1) The lack of participation: There are more and more communities online, but none of them could achieve serious participation from scientists and doctors from around the world. I’m curious to see how Doctrs.com will try to solve this problem.
2) How to make sure only physicians register: Users must provide credentials or use license number or use the method of Doctrs.com:
