Curbside is a secure, informal, interest-based social networking platform
Your identity and physician status are thoroughly vetted and confirmed before you are granted access into the community.
Some of this process is done manually and can take up to 24-48 hours.
Once approved, login and create a profile.
Tell the community about yourself, or hide everything except your chosen username. Use a real photo or something that best represents you!
Search our member-run groups and join or request to join.
Don’t see a particular topic that interests you? Create your own with just a few clicks!
Community members can connect, private message and see activity on their main feed and within interest groups.
The COVID-19 pandemic shed a spotlight on a malignant problem that was readily apparent but finally reached a tipping point: the devaluation of medicine and the physician profession.
From insurance companies and healthcare corporations to non-medical administrators and rising patient expectations, physicians are losing control over how they practice medicine and burnout rates continue to rise.
Other social media sites have become too bloated, insecure and formal for doctors to communicate at a level necessary to strengthen and grow as a community.
We’ve set out to reunite the physician community under one roof.
What’s starting out as a simple social network based on common knowledge and interest will organically lead to the unification of physicians, and ultimately, physicians taking back medicine
“The best part about conferences is getting together with my colleagues and friends at the hotel bar or restaurant after.
We talk about everything: tough cases, personal issues and aspirations. It’s that camaraderie that makes up the core of who doctors are.
Curbside is like being able to do that anytime. I can chat with my peers about almost anything, knowing they’re there for me.”
Unfortunately, not at this time. Our ID verification software currently only works through the web.
We take physician status and ID verification seriously. Our physician status verification is done manually and usually takes about 24 hours.
Sorry, Curbside Communities is currently exclusive for physicians only.
No- we're trying to maintain a more informal atmosphere so we're not currently offering CME.
Zero dollars, aka FREE. We're all in enough debt, Curbside is brought to you for free.
Curbside is starting as a doc-to-doc social network. However, an even more exclusive membership with sponsor deals, affiliates and courses is coming soon!
No, and that's the beauty. Social networks have their own uses and value to users. Curbside is designed to fill the hole of informal, secure communication between physicians.
We use a third party to send a unique confirmation code to your cell phone.
We then manually cross-reference your NPI to your name through the national database.
Only after you pass through those 2 gateways will your account be approved.
