Well lets grab Daniel as well and do a systematic review of the impact of #meded on critical appraisal skills 🙂

Sep 16, 2015 · A Learner’s Perspective on Social Media Medical Education versus Traditional Medical Education

Thanks Damian – great piece. Really like the way you have divided the perspective into 4 lens. Be great to collaborate on some ongoing work…!

I’ll pick you up on one point though. In the purpose of Medical Education you say, “From a learner’s perspective, it would seem that social media falls short in medical education in this regard”. I’d argue against that. Just because the methodology isn’t clearly apparent it doesn’t mean it isn’t there (St. Emlyns do amazing journal article reviews for example). I would also caution against believing that current medical education approaches teach critical analysis well – is there evidence for this?

Just a talking point really. Doesn’t detract from a great piece!
