About the Ads

We hate having ads on the Student Doctor Network! However, our mission is to provide student resources for free or at cost; advertising and sponsorships are required to cover expenses.

The Student Doctor Network is committed to showing only those ads that meet our standards for appropriate content. These particular ads are sold by third-party advertising companies, including Google Ads, who share revenue with SDN.

Advertisements are clearly delineated from site content with a grey box and the words “About the Ads” underneath.

SDN does not select the ads that appear on the site.  The ads that display are relevant to you, generally based on your past browsing history.  SDN does not have access to Google user information, but we have implemented filters in an attempt to prevent unacceptable advertising from showing on the SDN site. However, these filters don’t catch everything.

If you find an inappropriate ad being displayed, please contact us immediately using the SDN Helpdesk.  Ads that violate our acceptance standards will be removed from the site and our filters will be adjusted to help prevent a recurrence.

Political advertisements on SDN are paid for by the advertiser and such ads do not reflect the views of The Student Doctor Network, which neither endorses nor opposes any candidate for elective office or any political position of the advertiser.

To advertise on the Student Doctor Network, please contact [email protected].

To remove third-party network ads, please consider our “No Google Ads” option.  Available for a 99¢ donation.

Our Privacy Policy contains additional information on the information SDN collects and how it is used.
