My talk on the evolution of the medical textbook and the role of social media

One of the most exciting thing I have ever done was speak at dotMed this past February. I blogged about it. My talk just got pushed out to youtube.



The idea underlying the talk is that the medical textbook holds a central role in the education of physicians. Over the years, the textbook evolved from a single author text like Osler's to the multi-author textbook like Harrison's, to the online, digital solution like UpToDate.

I speculate that the next evolution will incorporate mobile and social elements and then proceed to show how the nephrology social media collective is using social tools to deliver compelling medical education. Enjoy.
