I’m very excited to share that I will give a new masterclass at the upcoming Stanford Medicine X. See you there!
A 90-minute Master Class on teaching social media in the health sciences. The final curriculum will be shaped by the learners themselves through their course applications, but his master class tentatively includes:
Strategies to create a curriculum for teaching students and medical professionals about disruptive technologies and social media.
Introducing online learning platforms as part of an official course curriculum.
Determining which online platform is most used by students and creating a parallel online curriculum.
Incorporating interactive content to leverage the power of social media in the classroom.

I receive a lot of questions from patients, physicians, researchers, developers, and policy makers after my talks about where they should start in discovering the future of medicine.

Here are the top choices in each of these categories.
Let me show you two books about the future of medicine. The first is The Patient Will See You Now from Dr. Eric Topol. This is the Number One book in digital health. The second is The Digital Doctor from Dr. Bob Wachter. These two books will give you an absolutely clear picture about where we are heading.
Here are nine more books about the future of medicine.
Regarding movies, Gattaca shows you the non-desired future of genomics. Big Hero 6 talks about how we could measure health parameters at home. And Elysium is discussing the future of radiology and how financial differences will harm society if it comes to health.

Regarding TV series, The Knick gives a great picture about the first years of modern surgery and how medicine develops over time.
