AAIM Workshop Presentation

About a week ago, I (Ben) was in San Antonio to do a joint workshop on using social media in medical education along with some colleagues. Among them was Dr. Vinny Arora, a hospitalist and an Associate Director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program here at the University of Chicago, the Assistant Dean for Scholarship & Discovery at the Pritzker School of Medicine, and an influential blogger (FutureDocs) and Twitter user (@FutureDocs).

This presentation is a brief introduction to blogs, wikis, Twitter, and podcasting in medical education, as well as current examples how they’re being used.

We also recorded and podcasted the presentation portion as well, so go check out the audio corresponding to these slides. Following the presentation, we broke into small groups to discuss each of these media in more detail. My podcasting group even recorded a short snippet of themselves!
