The #SoMe Summit Papers from PMJ

By Jonathan Sherbino (@sherbino)

In 2014, opinion leaders, scholars and Clinician Educators met in Toronto, Canada and on-line to discuss and debate the role of social media in medical education. The conversation from the Social Media Summit (part of the International Conference on Residency Education) was captured in a series of papers just published by the Postgraduate Medical Journal (a BMJ publication).

These six peer-reviewed publications are free to access:
