Twitter in Medicine: How and Why

I am a great believer in the use of social media in medicine. There really is no better way to bring continuing professional development into your day than by reading a few tweets, sharing some cases and having discussions with colleagues across the world.

If you are like many health professionals I meet, then you are probably intrigued by Twitter but are not quite sure where or how to begin. Well, luckily there is now a great little lecture series to help you flap your fledgling twitter wings!  

Radiologist Dr Jenny Hoang (@JennyKHoang) and pathologist Dr Sara Jiang (@Sara_Jiang) recently presented a Duke Medicine grand round exploring the use of Twitter in Medicine. Their three lectures are packed full of great tips. Take a look and I hope to meet some of you on Twitter soon.
