13 doctors agree

In brief: Licensed physicians

A select group of medical students can do the research and propose answers for questions on HealthTap.
Next, their answers are verified, edited, and approved by licensed physicians on HealthTap. Finally, when such an answer is posted, an acknowledgment line appears under the answer, crediting the medical student for his assistance. HealthTap doctors enjoy mentoring medical students.

In brief: Supervised

Medical students can answer questions, but the answer must be reviewed by a licensed physician before it gets published.

In brief: The latter.

On HealthTap you find licensed, board certified physicians.
