September 18, 2023

Figure 1, the world’s leading platform for case-based medical knowledge sharing, and the Medical Society of the District of Columbia (MSDC) have partnered to offer a customized space for DC physicians to stay current on local issues and inspire collaboration.

MSDC members will receive full access to the Figure 1 platform as well as a private space customized for MSDC. The private space will provide updates from MSDC and create a community for members where they can ask questions, post case images, and start medical conversations.

“In launching this collaboration with Figure 1, MSDC is offering a new and innovative way for our members to ensure their own well-being and that of their patients,” said MSDC President Susanne Bathgate, MD. “Through their MSDC membership and access to the Figure 1 platform, physicians in DC will have more opportunities to connect with one another, exchange ideas, and help their patients grow healthier.”

Benefits to MSDC members joining Figure 1 include:

  • A safe and secure platform with real patient cases from verified healthcare professionals
  • Quick medical quizzes to test medical knowledge
  • Unique CME credit opportunities
  • A community of engaged healthcare professionals

“We are excited to have MSDC members join our unique peer-to-peer platform and know their contributions will have a significant impact on our community and our efforts to democratize medical knowledge,” said Figure 1 CEO Josh Wildstein.
