Most U.S. physicians already have a Doximity profile that’s been generated from public records. Doximity has a public-facing directory, which U.S. News & World Report uses in its online physician locator and to help determine its annual Best Hospitals rankings. Claiming and completing your Doximity profile is crucial to managing your online reputation, whether you actively participate on the site or not.
STEP 1: Visit www.doximity.com.
STEP 2: Search for your name in the search bar.
STEP 3: Claim/verify your profile. Click ‘CLAIM’ or ‘VERIFY MY PROFILE,’ and Doximity will walk you through these processes step-by-step. Doximity uses a number of sources to verify physician’s identities, including (but not limited to) faxed copies of medical credentials, badges, licenses; DEA numbers; and emails from officially recognized medical institutions (schools or hospitals). Note: average verification processing time is three days.
STEP 4: Add a profile picture. If you do not have a recent professional photo, please contact the Department of Medicine’s Marketing and Communications team at DeptofMed@emory.edu. For detailed instructions on uploading a profile picture, click here.
STEP 5: Save time: Email a Microsoft Word document of your CV (and/or your profile picture) to firstname.lastname@example.org, and Doximity’s staff will complete most of your online profile for you.
Please contact DeptofMed@emory.edu if you have any questions or concerns about this process.
