At the 2014 Society for Academic Emergency Medicine Annual meeting Michelle Lin (M_Lin), Nicholas Genes (@NickGenes), Robert Cooney (@EMEducation), and myself (@takeokun) give a didactic session entitled “Twitter to Tenure: Use of Social Media to Advance Your Academic Career”.
We discussed the relationship of social media and #FOAMed to scholarship, the traditional markers of academic scholarly activity in the setting of US Graduate Medical Education, and our experience in social media over the years. Here is a recording of our lecture presentation and the questions from the audience. The audio is limited due to some technical difficulties while traveling.
I would also pay attention to the discussion from Ed Panacek at about 57:24. Ed has some very important things to say about social media and academic careers/advancement, Michelle may have also let a little surprise slip.
