Social Media & Residents


Posting a quick note today, would like to get some conversation going around social media policies for residents or medical students.

I did a quick internet search and got a few hits, but this seems to be a trending topic lately.  Especially with the upcoming recruitment season!  I know many of the programs at my institution still do not have written policies in this area...  

Here is an article from 2014 on social medial guidelines for residents and fellows.

University of Iowa FM Program's policy on social media 

UCONN's policy on social networking

UCF's policy on social networking & internet usage 

Does your program have a social media policy?  

Does your GME Office have an institutional policy on use of social media or networking?
