Social Media in Medical Education is a topic that is very close to my heart. I launched the world’s first and still only university accredited course for medical, dentistry and public health students abut social media and medicine and will have a major announcement soon regarding this course.
Now I would like to mention a blog entry on Life in the Fast Lane:
Social media (the internet) is a game changer. In medicine we are able to connect with colleagues, discuss medical literature, share evaluative thoughts, ponder hypotheses and join in collaborative thinking. We already engage in these activities in the physical world, and now can extend the conversation globally through these new digital technologies.
