Title: Short Presentation: The Practical Utility of Social Media Platforms in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Education

Abstract:

Social media has changed the way we communicate as well as how we obtain information during the past decades. Its influence is increasingly recognized by academic institutions. Its practical utility in medical education and training is gaining more impact because it is innovative, accessible and interactive. The different platforms are becoming more relevant as sources of supplementary learning materials for pathology trainees and as opportunities for continuing medical education among practicing pathologists. As this trend continues, social media is viewed as paving the way for wider acceptance of digital pathology and discussions in establishing standards and good clinical practice for online images.

This talk will present experiences of the speaker on how engagement with social media can significantly support pathology and laboratory medicine education, training and even clinical practices.

Major developments in pathology raise many questions. Be part of the discussion on the way forward.
