Social Media for Medical Students

Image by Marc Smith


Social media use by medical students poses special opportunities and special risks. Although the need for an effective social media policy among students is widely recognized, few have developed a sufficiently robust approach that both encourages appropriate use and outlines the subtle risks.

In this document, Social Media for Medical Students, I have attempted to do both. In particular, I have outlined a basic strategy for using social media to become a better doctor and to plan a career. I have also organized the legal, ethical, and professional responsibilities students have to patients, institutions, and self.

A quick skim through your document left me impressed -- I'll definitely be reading it over the summer in preparation for my own social media project.

This is a remarkable document. Spoke today with an administrator for a health system about Health Care Social Media. You are making an important contribution.
Thank you,
Lisa

Thank you so much for creating this! I've been trying to speak with my school's administration about a more specific presentation to medical students on social media usage because I've noticed what I would term "misconduct" on class Facebook groups. Since social media is relatively new, I think students don't fully recognize what is appropriate or inappropriate. This document serves as a great guideline in this regard, and also empowers students. Excellent work!
