Interested in how I teach #SoMe to medical students? Here are my slides from yesterday’s #MS1 presentation.

The format was different this year. Previously, I’ve taught 3 hr workshops to groups of 12.

All 186 students were together for this 40 min lecture then split into groups.
This is always a fun question to ask an audience! Every hand 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️ except for one student.

185/186 were on some form of social media.

What about last year? The numbers were even better! Every student who participated in a poll was on some form of social media.

Why is FB so popular? The school sets up a student only group prior to the academic year. Many rejoin the platform for access.

Why should students be mindful on their #SoMe activity? An inappropriate FB post might seem innocent to peers and problematic to others.

I encourage students to consider the +/- consequences of their posts.

One study looked at the views of residency committees and #medstudents.

50% of the RCs felt that an inappropriate FB post could negatively impact an applicant.

Only 2.8% of students felt that an inappropriate photo should be grounds for rejection.

Now, it’s great to tell students what they should and shouldn’t do, but that’s not enough. You need to give them the opportunity to explore and decide for themselves what’s appropro/inappropro.

They will come to their own conclusions and weigh the +/- consequences.

How do I do this? I create case studies from existing or fictitious social media posts. Coupled with questions about different perspectives, it’s a very effective method.

The following example is one case I’ve used for now the third year.

Before I get to the case, let me preface by saying I drill this point in over and over and over again. You’ve heard me say it before:

The public has a high amount of trust in medical professionals. It’s important not to violate it!

Ok, here’s the case. Yes, this really happened.

What are the issues with this post?

#MedEd #Tweetorial #MedTwitter #SoMe
When you develop cases and teach them with new audiences, you become familiar with the responses. One point that frequently comes up is HIPAA.

What do you think? Is the post a HIPAA violation?

#MedEd #MedTwitter #SoMe #Tweetorial #EduTwitter #AcademicTwitter
The case does not end there! It’s just the beginning..

Social media is social, so, of course people commented on the post. Do you think any of the comments are from other med professionals?

Third slide, first post OP provides context on pt.
