Built by Psychiatrists, for Psychiatrists.
When we set out to create a trusted online collaboration platform specifically for the likes of Psychiatrists, we wanted to be sure that it met the highest expectations. With input from active Psychiatrists, we were able to launch Psychiatrist Connect in 2013.
From clinical to retirement
Our goal is to provide a dynamic area for students and Psychiatrists alike to leverage the power of social media and gain useful knowledge into their field. We’re ready to make a positive impact!
Unlock the power of collaboration with our verification process.
