Have You Searched For Yourself Online? You’re Not The Only One

Professionalism is one of your most important and irreplaceable assets, built up over years of training, work, and compassion. Professionalism is one of the few aspects of your career entirely under your control. However Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of the digital age has the potential to take that control from you if you are not also proactive and careful.

In the short video below, Brad Sobolewkski, MD, MEd, describes the many threats to your professionalism in the digital age and gives concrete advice on how to maintain control of it. It’s part of a presentation he gave at a national conference for PEM fellows this week. It’s short, watch it with a friend.
