Twitter Finals Revision Group: How twitfrg Works

The idea for this group is that a topic/area of study for revision will be decided (ideally by voting, but initially most likely by the admins). A revision document will then be posted on the blog, usually with a few relevant MCQs for you to try 2- 3 days before the designated date and time for discussion. When it reaches discussion time, we'll log on to twitter and get the discussion going with all tweets marked with the #twitfrg hashtag.

Anne Marie Cunningham's insight:

This is a revision group started by some students last year. Have a look at the revision notes that they have produced. If you would like to get involved then get in touch!

DR INFOLOVE: Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The FOAM

Anne Marie Cunningham's insight:

#FOAM- Free Open Access Medical Education - this is a movement which has been started in Australia by critical and emergency care doctors. Here Chris Nickson explains how to manage information overload by developing good networks who can help you to find what you should really be looking at. It is maybe less relevant when you are early in the course but as you start becoming interested in your future career you should definitely start identifying the #FOAM leaders in that area and start following them.

Fun times for a trainee doctor: Social media and "oversharing culture"- how does that work for medics?

Fun times for a trainee doctor: Social media and "oversharing culture"- how does that work for medics? | Developing Your Digital Presence | Scoop.it

What I'm seeing more and more on social media, in general, is what I call "oversharing culture". If you check out the website 'failblog cheezburger', you can see a lot of social media faux pas- from people complaining about their boss (then their boss commenting) to posting details of their unsavoury medical problems, to affairs being found out and of course, lots and lots of hilarious typographical errors.
I see most of these on my personal news feed too- the ups and downs of relationships, illnesses, and generally embarassing situations that I wouldn't want to tell my Mum about, let alone the 500 friends that could see it!

Social media, is, of course, about showing off (or occasionally asking for sympathy). I'm not saying that's a bad thing- we like to showcase what we're proud of, and that's what we show- pictures of ourselves dressed up, having fun, a particularly nice dinner that we cooked, that charity event that we're getting sponsors for. Graduation day blew up my news feed with pictures of my friends in gowns with proud parents.

But the thing is, when you're in healthcare, nearly all experiences involve others. Any procedure you see or crazy story you are told- that was done to someone, belongs to someone. As a medical student I've dissected cadavers, visited prisons, spoken to patients in mental health institutions, been present for genital examinations- there is so much that we see as medical students, of vulnerable people, of people sharing their private lives, and that's a privilege for us, and one that we should handle carefully.

Anne Marie Cunningham's insight:

This is a post from a medical student at King's College in London. Do you see your friend's 'over-sharing' in social media? How would you respond?
