What makes Curbside different?

  • Focus on Security

    Physician status and identity are thoroughly vetted to ensure a trusted environment of your peers.

  • We Won't Sell You Out to Pharma

    Other networks in the past have offered corporations and pharma companies access to their users and content in exchange for compensation. While we may run ads, advertisers never know who you are, nor can they interact within the community.

  • Physicians Only

    This community is not designed for all healthcare workers. Physicians have a unique career pathway and lifestyle and we intend to keep the network within our profession.

  • Informal Atmosphere

    There are good physician networking sites out there, but they have a more formal, academic feel. At Curbside, we can talk medicine, but also about side gigs, parenting and fitness, all in one place.

  • Interest Based

    You can find interest groups on other networks, but they’re getting a little bloated and disorganized. Here, we bring them all straight to you under one roof. You can even create and moderate your own group.

  • Unity

    Our goal is to unify physicians in the largest "online 24/7 multi-specialty conference" ever.  Through networking, sharing and supporting each other, we can organize and take back our profession. Tell us what’s important to you; help drive the growth of our community.

Our why

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.”

FAQ

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.

Physicians should always practice HIPAA compliance, inside and out of the clinical setting. However, this is NOT a HIPAA secure/policed site, so it is up to you to practice proper HIPAA compliance.  After registration, see our terms of use for more details.

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.
