Doctors using Twitter at medical conferences

More physicians are using the microblog service Twitter. This past weekend, two medical conferences were updated by the minute from plugged in doctors.

Clinical Cases and Images’ Ves Dimov and emergency resident Graham Walker brought us the NEJM’s Horizons Conference, where they provided their input and expertise to influence the NEJM in their Web 2.0 initiatives.

Rural hospitalist Theresa Chan was also prolific in updating the Management of the Hospitalized Patient conference in San Francisco, sharing valuable tips from the lectures.

For doctors who weren’t able to attend, this was a fascinating opportunity to stay connected and provide instant feedback on the proceedings. Cutting edge indeed.
