Docphin Ambassador Program

As physicians, we started Docphin to solve a problem that we had been facing throughout our medical training: information overload. Docphin is more than simply a dashboard to organize information; rather its a movement to transform the way that we practice medicine. We're so excited to work with an equally passionate group of Ambassadors to help us achieve our vision for Docphin.
