The Student Doctor Network was created in 1999 as a nonprofit service to help build a diverse doctor workforce. We achieve our mission by providing free advising resources, tools, and peer-support forums to those who would otherwise not have access to advising services. SDN is published by CRG, a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational organization. Learn more about our history.
