Welcome to the NEW flipMD!

After a successful first year, we’re excited to release the new and improved flipMD to our consultants and clients! We're taking a moment to share some details about the new site, including some upgrades we made and a look at what’s coming next. 

For everyone

Streamlined, clean design. This one's hard to miss. We've redesigned the site from the ground up to incorporate a fresh, clean, and easy to understand design to help with navigation and sharing flipMD's story. 

Easier login and sign-up processes. We’ve simplified the sign-up and login processes. You can now sign up via Google and Facebook so you don’t have to manage additional usernames and passwords. We’ve also updated the onboarding steps to get you a head start on filling in your user profile to share with prospective clients and consultants.

Remodeled messenger tool. The most loathed feature of the old flipMD was our messenger tool. We put that thing to rest and shifted to an inbox-style tool that we think works really well.

For consultants

In-app referral program for physicians to Nominate a colleague. We’ve added a fully embedded referral program that allows consultants to suggest flipMD jobs to colleagues and friends outside the flipMD fam. Just click Nominate on any open flipMD job to send an email to any physician who you think would be a great fit for the gig.

Downloadable CV option. Instead of uploading and sharing your CV with each individual client, you can now upload a downloadable CV for all clients to view and access as they review your profile or job proposal submission.

Enhanced Member Perks. The Member Perks section now houses additional resources and benefits for our physician-consultant base. Be sure to check it out:

  • Referral Program. Here’s where you’ll find the status of any physician referrals you submit, as well as info on rewards you could receive for successful referrals.
  • Partners. FlipMD partners provide interesting and helpful services to physicians, and they're all personally vetted by our team. Check out the full list in the Partners section.
  • NextStop Map. NextStop is the ultimate local resource for relocating physicians and their families. In map format, access our national network of physician-recommended resources for realtors, mortgage lenders, financial advisors, and more—all with experience working with physician clients.
  • Events. See a full list of upcoming webinar events where we bring you special content and experts who help with topics outside clinical medicine but relevant to physicians at all career stages. 
  • Articles. Check out other recent blog articles on topics covering everything from financial planning and career-building to physician mental health and being married to medicine. 

For clients

Easier to use reporting. We’ve improved the payment reporting and export options so you can easily download all recent or historical transactions made through flipMD.

Improvements to workflow for multiple consultants. Many of our clients post projects that require hiring multiple physician consultants. We’ve updated some features to improve the flow and reduce the effort and time it takes to manage projects requiring more than two participants.

Expanded search and filter options to find consultants. We’ve added new filter options and the ability to save your personal preferences to streamline the process of finding great consultant candidates.

What’s next

At flipMD, we're always looking for ways to improve. Stay tuned for the following updates we'll be releasing in the coming months:

  • Batch messaging to send messages to multiple users, including templated messages at the start of a project and through each milestone as it applies to all participants.
  • In-app interviewing process with calendar integration to facilitate live interviews with prospective candidates directly through flipMD.
  • Client teams where multiple client users can live under one org, allowing your whole team to work together on flipMD.
  • Improved ratings and reviews process so you can share feedback with clients and consultants you work with on flipMD.

Greg is a PGY-4 interventional radiology resident at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals in Philadelphia. He graduated from UCLA with his BS in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences before moving across the country to New York City. While in New York, Greg obtained his Master of Public Health degree in epidemiology with an advanced certificate in applied biostatistics. He then went on to do his medical school training at Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, New Hampshire. In June 2018, he started his post-graduate training with a surgical intern year at Jefferson before continuing there for his integrated interventional radiology residency. During his first year of diagnostic radiology, he began offering his services to various clients by any means possible and was able to make additional side income to help support his family through residency training. This is what sparked the idea for flipMD.
