Medical associations, hospitals, medical schools, and more use Figure 1 Groups to host a private online medical community where members can interact, share new resources, and engage on a deeper level, regardless of their geographic location.


Figure 1 Groups offer your members a safe and secure place to collaborate, learn, and develop camaraderie with each other. Our registration process is simple and straightforward, and requires verification of your members as healthcare professionals.


Provide your members with the opportunity to share their own de-identified medical cases and clinical information, and discuss these with other members in the group. Organizations can post virtual conference materials, host educational discussions, and feature key opinion leaders in the group.

Groups FAQs

How do I start a group?
First, create a profile on Figure 1, and then create your group. If your group is set to private, you’ll need to invite members. If your group is public, you can invite members, or sit back and wait for people to join.

How do I find groups to join?
Browse all the public groups created by the Figure 1 community. Any verified member can find, join, or create a group. 

How do I keep my group members engaged?
The best way to keep group members engaged is to post content regularly within the group — we recommend at least once a week. It’s also great to comment on others’ cases, ask questions, suggest a diagnosis, etc. Regular activity will help keep members engaged in your group.
