SAEM Didactic on Social Media and the Academic Physician

Members of the social media committee spoke today at SAEM about, well, online social networking and the emergency physician. Our presentations are available via Prezi: mine as well as Jason Nomura's and Rob Cooney's. We also had a conference call a few weeks ago where we covered some of these topics, moderated by Jim Miner and recorded by Scott Joing.

Below, I've added links to stories, papers and sources I referenced, in my presentation:
