Social Media and the Medical Profession

Social media and the medical profession

A guide to online professionalism for practioners and students.

A joint initiative of the Australian and New Zealand Medical Associations, this site offers advice and resources about emerging issues in the use of social media.

Evidence is emerging about the risks for medical professionals in engaging with social media. Online behaviours can impact upon professional integrity, professional relationships and employment opportunities. Perceptions of professional behaviour must evolve to encompass new social media.
