- Online Professionalism and the Mirror of Social Media
- Are Social Media Threatening Medical Professionalism?
A national survey was conducted of the 68 executive directors of all medical and osteopathic boards in the U.S. and its territories. Developed with the input of key informants, the survey focused on reported violations of online professionalism and disciplinary actions taken. The survey responses represented 88 percent of physicians in the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) database with active licenses.
Online professionalism will be important to address and discipline as the role of the Internet increases in society.
