I’m not sure how new this site is, but I just came across it for the first time the other day and thought I would mention it. Healthcare Travelbook was started by a veteran traveling physical therapist and his wife, but is open to all kinds of healthcare travelers and people associated with the industry.
It is free to join and appears to be very vibrant (some of these sites I come across look like there has been no activity for months) and has new members daily.
It offers a lot of the standard features you would expect from a social network, including uploading a profile pic, updating your status when you log in, etc. It also has some of the same standard attempts I have seen from other healthcare travel social networks, like reviews (company, recruiter, facility and location), photo sharing, video sharing, forums and make friends.
The blogs appear to be on an invite basis, so not every user has one, but they do cover a lot of areas so that is good and anyone can comment.
It also comes with plenty of social networking tools like a “Share This” button on many of the pages and the ability to bookmark within the site the things you like.
Healthcare Travelbook also comes with an addicting points system that gives you points for your activity.
The most impressive thing about this site is that it works so smoothly. Some site like these are clunky and you encounter dead links, but not this one. It feels very smooth and that it is well maintained. It also has a great set of community guidelines that I think will help make it a success, as they encourage transparent communication.
I will be setting up a profile there soon, so if you have time on your hands check it out.
