Letter From Chief of Staff: Register With Doximity

By Clement C. Yang, MD, Chief of Staff

Reputation plays a major role in Cedars-Sinai’s quest to become the leading destination for healthcare in California and the nation. Achieving this designation depends in part on how actively we network online with our peers and promote the innovative, life-saving care at Cedars-Sinai.

That’s where Doximity—the online professional network—can help. Every year, U.S. News & World Report partners with Doximity to conduct its online survey as part of rankings for the nation's top hospitals. Physician votes in the survey are the basis of reputational scores used in the U.S. News rankings. Your participation in Doximity—and voting only for your specialty at Cedars-Sinai—is critical to our continued success in rankings for the medical center and for specialty areas.

If you have not yet joined Doximity, I urge you to become a registered member by visiting Doximity.com by Nov. 1, 2019.

The next survey period is expected to open in February. If you are board-certified and register for Doximity before Nov. 1, you will automatically receive an email asking you to log into your Doximity account to submit your specialty recommendations next year. Remember to vote only for your specialty at Cedars-Sinai, and not other institutions.

If you register with Doximity after Nov. 1, you will not be able to vote until 2021.

Doximity also allows you to stay connected with peers, communicate with colleagues, promote your services, and gain information about trending topics and new treatments in your specialties.

I hope you will become more actively engaged in Doximity and help us further elevate Cedars-Sinai’s national visibility and reputation. We have maintained No. 8 on the Honor Roll for the past two years. With your continued support, we can propel Cedars-Sinai’s standing among the country’s most influential and respected medical centers to become the top-ranked institution on the West Coast.

Thank you.
