Twitter to Tenure: Using Social Media to Enhance Your Career

What good is Twitter anyway?  Why should I contribute to a blog?  What are the limits of what I can say about my patients on social media sites like facebook?  How can social media help my career?

Well I won't answer these questions now, but over the next several days, a group of high-powered academic users of social media will be posting their responses to these and other questions.  This is our ramp up to a workshop we are giving together at the Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) Annual Meeting in Phoenix.  For those of you who can't make it to the meeting, here's your chance to learn virtually.  And for those who are going to the SGIM meeting, we hope these posts will get you excited, and we'll see you at the workshop on Thursday from 4-5:50!

Here is the schedule of ramp up posts that address the use of social media to advance your career:

Monday - Vinny Arora (@FutureDocs) will post on Futuredocs
Tuesday - Bob Centor (@medrants) will post on DB's Medical Rants
Wednesday - Kathy Chretien (@MotherinMed) will post on Mother's in Medicine
Thursday - Eric Widera (@ewidera) will post on GeriPal

Looking forward to the posts, and hope to see some of you in Phoenix!
