Should Physicians Be Logging in to Avoid Burning Out?

“Social media networks for physicians appear to have been successful for a number of reasons. They have also drawn the attention of organizations like the NEJM group, and Google, both of which have secured partnerships with Medstro. These social media platforms are providing physicians with robust, interactive, and engaging social networks that are helping to virtually break down the silos of institution and geography, and allowing physicians to collaborate, get advice, or just chat, crucially allowing them to draw on a broad network of support.”

Medstro wants to redefine healthcare social media

“But unlike others that have emerged in the area, Boston-based Medstro is looking to not only seize the web for collaboration, but also hosting events and collaborative competitions that it hopes will spur more lively engagement among its user base...[Medstro] is much more than just a website that encourages connections.

From Mississippi to Boston: An Interview with Jennifer M. Joe, MD

“We are in an interesting time in medicine, where government regulations, general dissatisfaction with the current medical system and technology are all creating an opportunity for us to be part of the change to make medicine better for everyone.

Better Way for Medicine

Finding a Better Way for Medicine

After finishing 4 years of medical school (University of Mississippi), 3 years of medicine residency (Georgetown), and 2 years of fellowship (Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital/Brigham and Women’s Hospital), our founder expected to enter professional life and feel like she was making a difference. The American healthcare system greatly disappointed her.

She created Medstro with a mission— to find a better way.

Bootstrapped and Founder-Funded

Medstro is a completely bootstrapped start-up company funded solely by personal investments from the three co-founders, Jennifer Joe (CEO), Jim Ryan (COO), and John Bachir (CTO). The three of them decided against taking venture capital investment so that we could stay true to the mission of building a place for you, not venture capitalists and advertisers.

This is For You

Medstro is built on the principle that you, your voice, and your relationships are the heart of Medstro. You build and change your own profile, create and join your own groups, your own discussions, and your own contests.

The beauty of Medstro is in the dialogue and communication that you create with others and the discovery of new colleagues.
