Physician Participation in Social Media – What Up?
On Tuesday, December 8th, 2009 I had the pleasure of speaking with Bryan Vartebedian, MD, a pediatric gastroenterologist, active in the social media space via Twitter @Doctor_V, his personal blog 33Charts.com, and periodic contributor to Get Better Health.
We spoke via Blog Talk Radio on his calling to medicine, pediatrics in particular and more recently his attraction to the social media space. Doctor_V has both interesting and witty insights on the medium. Some of his more recent tweets are noteworthy:
When I mention SM to other physicians they just giggle and look confused
LinkedIn may be a good first step for socially retarded physicians
Social media is the fancy awning that hangs from a building; human interaction is the bricks & mortar (a re-tweet)
For more of ‘Doctor_V’s insight, wit and early ‘do’s and don’ts’ for physicians considering a social media presence, listen in to the full interview here.
