Social media is changing how medicine is practiced and healthcare is delivered. Patients, doctors, communication or even time management, everything is changing, except one thing: medical education. We need a revolution!
When a UK physician wanted to visit Hungary every week just to attend my university course focusing on social media and medicine, I decided it’s time to make this course global.
Today, The Social MEDia Course goes live with 16 flash Prezis, exciting tests, badges and achievements. Enjoy and have fun while learning! Medical students, physicians and even patients, everyone is welcome to take the course which is, of course, for free.
Here is a video about the course (and also a Prezi).
I have been using Prezi.com for over a year now and it really changed the way I create my presentations. But the concept and technology the video I just discovered on New Scientist shows will certainly lead to major improvements regarding the experience of presenting and listening to presentations.
The LightSpace prototype projects slides, documents, photographs or video onto any surface, from a table to a door. Presenters can then touch and literally pick up a virtual item from a display and carry it across the room as a spot of light in the palm of their hand.
To perform commands – “play video”, for example – you move your hand along a projected light beam that acts as the central control. Holding your hand in the right position on the menu for a few seconds activates the function.

It’s not just patients who turn to Google or other search engines to research medical information. According to Google, 86 percent of doctors say they now use Internet on the job. Of that group, the majority start at Google, which they use as a source to look for general information about diseases and drugs, writes pediatrician Dr. Rahul K. Parikh in a special piece for the Los Angeles Times.

You may want to think twice before your next visit to the doctor’s office. According to Dr. Barbara Starfield’s now-famous study, iatrogenic deaths (those resulting from treatment by physicians or surgeons) are the third leading cause of mortality in the United States, resulting in the loss of 225,000 lives per year. Of that total, nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections kill 80,000, physician errors claim 27,000, and unnecessary surgery results in 12,000 deaths.

I just came across the blog of Jamie Varughese, who is a third year adolescent medicine fellow at Baylor College of Medicine and saw she designed and created a Prezi slideshow about Webicina, the medical social media guidance service.
I decided to focus my final presentation on an introduction to an amazing website created by a physician in Hungary, Dr. Bertalan Mesko, that provides useful and reliable online medical information for patients and providers. It is still a work in progress, but stay tuned…
