Sometime last night TRIP received its 5,000 registered user – which is a wonderful milestone. This is how long it has taken each 1,000:

  • First 1,000 – 15 days
  • Second 1,000 – 24 days
  • Third 1,000 – 31 days
  • Fourth 1,000 – 37 days
  • Fifth 1,000 – 24 days

A quick analysis of the users show the top 15 countries that registered users come from:

  1. UK
  2. USA
  3. Spain
  4. Canada
  5. Italy
  6. Australia
  7. Ireland
  8. Mexico
  9. India
  10. Peru
  11. Saudi Arabia
  12. Netherlands
  13. Argentina
  14. Columbia
  15. Iran

And the professional breakdown:

  • Doctor/Physician (1448)
  • Nurse (693)
  • Student (607)
  • Other (335)
  • Information specialist (298)
  • Pharmacist (245)
  • Academic researcher (199)
  • Dentist (56)
  • Patient/carer (21)

For those eagle-eyed readers the professionals figures add up to less than 5,000. That’s because, for the first few months the completion of the professional group was optional – so in our records we have >1,000 with no assigned profession!

There are many advantages to signing up to My-TRIP and these revolve around keeping up to date with the latest evidence, recording your use of TRIP for CPD/CME and proof of learning and access to the TRIP/doc2doc forum. Also, searching TRIP while registered means we pay a proportion of advertising income to Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors without Borders and HIFA2015. For a full list of the advantages of signing up see our list of key features.

So, if you’re not registered, do it now – it’s a powerful tool and it’s free!
