Critique and response

  1. Among the many tweets about this past Sunday’s White Coat Ceremony for the incoming Medical School Class of 2016 — mostly congratulating and recognizing friends and family members — we also found this:

    @uthscsa your 2 tix per 1st year at white coat is ridiculous. Have a spouse & parents? Tough luck. Make lots of people happy: bigger venue

    .@uthscsa “welcome to UTHSCSA, please feel free to utilize your handicap parking tag to park right next to the building.”

  7. These tweets were picked up by Health Science Center staff monitoring twitter on Monday and forwarded to folks in ATS and Medical School who could use them for future planning.  But also, David Hotchkiss replied that he had a good conversation with @bestieverchad in person after the white coat ceremony, and had gathered a lot of helpful input that he could apply in future events.

    David didn’t stop there, though — since @bestieverchad’s tweets were clearly directed to @uthscsa, a twitter reponse was appropriate…

    Great example of a school making positive changes via Twitter? @davidhotchkiss at @uthscsa asking que’s, taking ownership, & vowing change.
