The Use of Social Media in Residency Education

Michael Bond, MD, is a co-author of “Recommendations from the Council of Residency Directors (CORD) Social Media Committee on the Role of Social Media in Residency Education and Strategies on Implementation,” published in the July issue of the Western Journal of Emergency Medicine. The recommendations were drafted by CORD’s Social Media Committee, discussed during a day-long forum at CORD's 2014 Academic Assembly, and then refined by a panel of 22 emergency medicine residency program directors and social media experts. The refinement process took place on Google Groups, an online discussion platform.
