Pediatric Grand Rounds (CME): Birth of a Social Mediatrician: Adopting Twitter, Instagram, and Slack for Residents

July Lee, MD, Bradford Nguyen, MD, Samantha Scanlon, MD - Stanford School of Medicine

Physicians are increasingly using social media for new research, networking, and sharing information. The pandemic has also led training programs to shift to virtual formats. During the 2020-2021 academic year, social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, Slack) were integrated into our residency program to promote communication, education, and connectedness. In this session we’ll discuss successes and lessons learned along the way.
