Last Friday afternoon, Dr Jeanette Ross, geriatrics and palliative medicine specialist, presented at the South Texas Regional Family Medicine Grand Rounds here at the UT Health Science Center, on the topic “Professional Uses of Social Media in Healthcare”. Dr Ross did a fantastic job, and even if you didn’t get the chance to be there, the live webcast of her presentation was archived online for on-demand viewing. In addition, her slides can be found below (in two sections):
Today I discovered another excellent Grand Rounds presentation, this time by gastroenterologist Dr Ryan Madanick of the UNC School of Medicine, focused on social media in medical education. Dr Madanick streamed his Grand Rounds live at noon today (EDT, 11am CDT) and will do so again at 4:30pm this afternoon (EDT, 3:30pm CDT). His webcast from the first presentation can be found here on his Ustream channel. In addition, Dr Madanick has also shared his slides on SlideShare:
Both of these presentations are well-presented introductions with a great mixture of background information, specific case studies, and high-quality references. I highly recommend both.
