Why do I have to go through an Identity Authentication Process (IAP) before taking a survey?
Q: Why do you need to verify my identity?
A: Market research can provide valuable insights into the perspectives, opinions, and experiences of healthcare professionals. In the interest of maintaining the integrity of the Medscape market research process and survey results, we require that you verify your identity as a healthcare professional before participating in Medscape Paid Research surveys.
Q: How secure is this process?
A: Don't worry - The information you submit below will be sent in an encrypted form directly to our identity verification vendor who will use the information solely to identify you within its database. If you are so identified, you will be presented with a series of questions that only you should be able to answer. If you answer all questions correctly, you will be eligible to participate in Medscape Paid Market Research. Note that Medscape does not store any of the information that you submit nor does Medscape have access to your answers to the verification questions.
