Social Media in Medicine course: The Announcement!

I launched a course at the University of Debrecen, Medical and Health Science Center in 2008 in order to help medical and public health students learn more about social media. Now, after several semesters, the course developed a lot and I still teach students about the basics of social media, through blogging, Twitter, Facebook, searching and many other topics. Here are the weekly summaries of this semester. This was the last semester in Debrecen and I’ve got two announcements to make.

1) From February, I will teach the course at Semmelweis University of Budapest, the oldest medical school in Hungary (1769) with even more students (hundreds of them) and through 14 weeks instead of 10.

2) I will make the course totally online in February! It means any students, medical professionals or even patients could watch the Prezis, take the course and get the certification that they know what they have to know about social media and medicine. More details later!

I’m very excited about these and I hope you are also looking forward to seeing the site online!
