A community created for students, by students

Student Doctor Network (SDN) was created by medical students in 1999 as a nonprofit service. Its goal: to provide free advising resources, tools, and a peer-support forum community to those who would otherwise not have access to such services.

SDN brings together hundreds of thousands of current and future healthcare students and professionals into one community where they can share information and offer guidance. Students can provide encouragement to their peers and those coming up behind them as well as seek advice from vetted experts. Whether considering a gap year, struggling with the intensity of their classes, or navigating the Match, members can find someone who understands what they’re facing.

The SDN community includes most doctoral-level health fields:
Medical (MD - Allopathic and DO - Osteopathic)Dental (DDS and DMD)Optometry (OD)Pharmacy (PharmD)Podiatry (DPM)Psychology (Psyd and PhD)Rehabilitation Sciences (AuD, OTD, DPT, PhD)Veterinary (DVM)
