Social Media at Scientific Sessions

More and more physicians are entering the social media space - so much so that even our more classic academic physician colleagues are joining in.  But there can be challenges that arise at scientific sessions when the old way of professional discourse meets the new way of social media.

Robert A Harrington, MD (Chair, Dept of Medicine, Stanford University, CA) and Clyde W. Yancy, MD, MSc (Northwestern Medical Center, IL) discuss these challenges nicely at and offer some interesting insights and tips for doctors, both young and old, as they consider entering the social media space.


P.S.: Then again, if you're still unsure how Twitter even works, consider this Twitter primer.
