Echoing feedback and comment below - other platforms like MedShr far better as closed and verified - exclusively for doctors and REGISTERED Hcps.
Dreadful app which promotes dangerous alt-med pseudoscience
Figure 1 used to be an app for medical professionals that encouraged discourse and learning. The biggest mistake was giving alternative medicine quackery an unbridled platform, allowing for its promotion to rob vulnerable patients of their money via pseudoscience. Continued protestations of this from the community were ignored, and eventually when it all blew up and the community started to call these unscrupulous folks out on their snake oil behaviour, Figure 1 elected to side with the pseudoscience. Extremely heavy handed moderation tactics coupled with the promotion of pseudoscience led to several long time and prominent members deleting their accounts, specifically ones who have uploaded hundreds of genuinely educational cases that contributed hugely to evidence based medicine and learning. Cack handed mismanagement from its founders have proven that they are quite clueless when it comes to paying attention to combating quackery and its promotion, amongst other things. Should you choose to use this app, please be aware that it employs over zealous moderation of anyone who challenges pseudoscience, to the detriment of its own integrity. The app's biggest user with the highest number of cases removed himself from the site after being thoroughly disgusted with the founder's actions. Avoid.
