Good Intro for Docs New to the Internet: VideoPodcast Series by UC at Irvine Medical School
University of California, at Irvine, Medical School offers a course for its medical students, entitled “Digital Literacy and Social Media”. The main force behind these podcasts is Warren Wiechman, MD, the Director of Digital Education at the school.
This series is designed for Med Students, but it stands to reason thatm for all docs who think Social Media is an infectious disease best treated by antibiotics, it may be beneficial. The series starts at the very beginning, and leads the student through all types of social media, how the various ones can be used. The necessary warnings about the dangers, and the need for caution in some circumstances is also noted.
