Earlier this month Dr. Jason Nomura posted a fast-paced 15-minute review of resident education in ultrasound training using simulation and social media on youtube. I have previously written about how social media has been effective in a nursing school, so I was eager to learn how it could play a part in resident training. This is a great short presentation on these two topics:
About the video: “There was a session at the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine 2014 Annual Meeting focusing on education in Point of Care Ultrasound. There were several speakers and I was asked to speak on resident education, particularly to focus on simulation and social media and how it fits with EM Resident ultrasound education. This is a fairly large and broad area to cover in 15 minutes or less.
I chose to focus on how to simulation and social media can assist in education and deliberate practice to get learners to an “expert performance” level. The information may not be new to people who are familiar with simulation or social media. My goal was to show how these things can be helpful from a conceptual and design view for education. Also to provide information that you can use if you have to justify to others why social media or simulation is important to your educational program and why it should be supported.”
I learned more about Jason from his website http://takeokun.com:
