Study of Social Media Discussion

Bryan Hayes, PharmD, is the lead author of the article titled “Social Media in the Emergency Medicine Residency Curriculum: Social Media Responses to the Residents’ Perspective Article,” published in the May issue of Annals of Emergency Medicine. This report categorizes contributions to a 14-day online discussion of an article on the integration of social media into the emergency medicine residency curriculum, which drew 1,033 “unique visitors” from 32 countries. The authors concluded that online interactions hold great potential for dissemination of knowledge and the generation of hypotheses for future research. The article was highlighted as an Editor’s Choice for Clinicians.
