Description

Transparency, engagement, co-creation, and collaboration–these are all words that can be used to describe the era of social-connectedness in which we live. Indeed, many of today’s leading educational thinkers have a blog and regularly tweet out their opinions. While social media tools may have a clear role in communication, these same tools are revolutionizing medical education in a movement known as #FOAMed (Free Open Access Meducation). Our goal in this learning lab is to help you learn about the various modalities of connecting with the intelligence and insight of others using social media. We’ll provide you with the basics to get you started on Twitter, Tweet Chats, Podcasting, Blogging, and Google Hangout. At the end of this learning lab you will emerge with an entirely new skill set and appreciation for social media and how it can be used in medical education.
 

Nikita Joshi graduated from medical school at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL and finished her Emergency Medicine training at SUNY Downstate, Brooklyn NYC.

Always one to explore the next exciting opportunity, Nikita was able to start working with Dr. Michelle Lin from UCSF in November 2012 as blog contributor to AcademicLifeinEM.com and continued on to becoming blog editor. Initially she focused on blog posts related to medical education and simulation, but gradually expanded to sections such as Book Club with the purpose of exposing clinicians to great books that are not necessarily clinically relevant, but relevant to becoming a great physician and member of society such as The Secret Life of Henrietta Lacks and Five Days at Memorial.

Through many brainstorming sessions with others involved with AcademicLifeinEM.com, the team realized the next area of interest is in the use of chat programs such as GoogleHangout to revolutionize the standard concept of how education is given in small and large group settings. The group has explored using GoogleHangout for book club discussions and journal club with prominent people such as author Dr. Sheri Fink and Dr. Ian Stiell. Their ultimate goal is to change the concept that education has to be delivered in real time live, and break financial, geographic, and time barriers in the process.
