Ever wish you could instantly have a colleague’s opinion on a tough case, unusual rash, EKG, or X-ray finding? Ever had questions about a drug, and wanted to know how doctors have seen it work in the real world? Do you miss having a doctors’ only place to discuss, share, and learn? Join SERMO - the #1 doctors-only global social network!
Created in 2005 by physicians, for physicians, SERMO is the virtual doctors’ lounge and the home of medical crowdsourcing. It is a fun, relaxing, safe haven where doctors can choose to be anonymous, and feel free to talk about everything that is important to them, from the business to the practice of medicine, without repercussions. On SERMO, doctors can also tap into the collective wisdom of hundreds of thousands of peers from around the world to crowdsource diagnosis and treatment recommendations to help solve tough cases quickly and easily via their mobile. Most recently, SERMO released the largest global database of doctor-to-doctor drug reviews, so physicians can consult peers from around the world when making treatment decisions.
SERMO is always FREE, private and secure. Join nearly 800,000 doctors across 96 specialties and sub-specialties, from 150 countries to:

Ratings and Reviews
Surveys end after completion without reimbursement
After you finish the survey the app will crash and technical service will say they did not record your answers. But they won’t let you re-enter your data so they sell your answers without paying the honorarium.
still the Worst app in the history of apps. You can't find followed posts. Sermo decides what you get to read. Totally unusable. I'd give it zero stars if I could.
Needless complexity and confusion
Drops the poster’s comments before he can complete them, citing “inactivity.”
No I am not inactive. I am busy trying to type a post. The more I type, the longer I spend on it trying to make sure I have the info, and citations etc. correct, the more likely it is to be deleted before I can post it due to “security” reasons.
Let me digress a moment to one of my favorite quotes by Atovotamat Kalishnikov, the Russian tank commander who designed the ubiquitous AK-47 assault rifle, for better or worse , the most widely produced rifle in the history of modern war and which is still in use throughout the world.
“Anyone can design something that is complex. It takes genius to design something that is simple.” (reliable, and functional too I might add.)
Alas, this applies to software “app” designers. BTW I hate that word “app”. Hey, do you have your “apps” for your computer or phone yet? How can you be hip if you don’t have your apps? Even the Geico pig has his “apps!” “How can you eat your pudding if you don’t eat your apps?” ( Pink Floyd)
The pushing of a button on a cell phone or computer is nothing more than an extension of the most basic behavior studied in animal science: The rat presses the button to get the cheese.
Programmers have no sense of logical thought processes and therefore are incapable of writing a clean, concise, logical and functional program. They are so afraid of having missed something that they throw in everything on every page, which basically makes the “app” an orgy of distracting, redundant, confusing and ultimately needlessly complex functions on every page. Cell phone or key board use does not improve or rely on higher intelligence functioning. It is simply like the rat memorizing which keystrokes and in what order they need need to be pressed to solve the maze so get can he can get the cheese.
No problem solving, no knowledge transfer, no higher intelligence in “ learning” to navigate a website or program. It is a waste of the user’s time.
So send the web designers and the programmers ( especially EHR and EMR) back to complete course work and training in logic and thought processes before they are allowed to write “apps”
Sorry for the rant.
