medical residents on social networksNow these residents have a new way to exchange information. QuantiaMD, an online physician community and collaboration platform with 160,000 members, is creating a Resident Exchange Social Network for young doctors. The network gives these physicians a place to share knowledge, ask questions and discuss issues related to medicine and medical practices.

The core of this Resident Exchange Social Network is its national library, which provides residents with a series of brief, high-impact case presentations created by chief residents. The site also provides a platform for residents to do their own social networking.

This new form of communication will allow new doctors to address the many non-medical issues that residents face in the rapidly changing and expanding healthcare environment. Members can access the network via PC, smartphones and tablets.

Residencies are tough, stressful times for many young doctors. This peer-group support network can help these physicians minimize their anxiety and focus on what they do best – treating patients and saving lives.
