This is a very brief list, because we want you to start. Get a Twitter account, post nothing – goal is to follow and observe. You’ll slowly start following more and we’ll eventually post a guide on how to utilize Twitter as an intern, to gain and share knowledge.
- Dr. Kimberly Manning is an academic hospitalist, who writes narrative medicine stories that make you think about what you do every day. She also has a great elevator pitch on why you should be part of #MedEd
- Dr. Sayed A. Tabatabai is a nephrologist who writes poignant stories about things besides kidneys. Keep tissues handy.
- Dr. Sonia Singh is an internal medicine primary care physician who wrote a really helpful tweetorial about “health anxiety.”
- Dr. Tony Breu: a hospitalist and proliferate creator of Tweetorials on many topics. This link will take you to his Tweetorial index of magic.
- Dr. Natasha Bhuyan is a Family Medicine physician, faculty at UA Phx, writer for AAFP and so much more. She’s been an inspiration to me.
PS: Bonus content! Also follow @PrimaryCareChat – primary care is always important, so follow this account to take part in a weekly “chat” with learning on various topics, often with guest tweeters!
Why aren’t there more Family Medicine docs? Probably because they’re all so busy. And because I follow a lot of FM residents and med students, versus attendings. I would be thrilled to reach out to more #FamilyMed and #WomenInMed to follow on Twitter and interview here.
