Second Life in Medical Education

Although I am not in medical education anymore, I am still very interested in how we train future doctors and how we continue our own lifelong learning. I thought this piece was cool – the Imperial Medical College in London is experimenting with using Second Life (where you have an alter ego called an avatar) and interact with others in a virtual world. Maybe we can use this in Group Health CME someday?

Social Media and Salmonella

HHS is really moving into the 21st Century (even without Tom Daschle) – they’ve created a Center for Social Media that in 4 days developed a website packed with Web 2.0 tools in response to the peanut product contamination with salmonella.   You can get every flavor of tool here – widgets to get constant updates on the issue, podcasts, Youtube video from the CDC channel, … it’s cool.  Great site to refer patients to.
