We recently interviewed Bryan Vartabedian, MD, of 33 Charts fame, about professionalism on the web. Now medical student Jin Packard offers his perspective on professionalism on the web:
We’re like goalies at World Cup Soccer. We can catch 9/10 shots, miss 1, and the crowd boos and the death mail pours in. Any one thing we do in public can affect our community rapport. Not a question of fairness, but it comes with the territory.Friends of mommy_doc on Twitter defended her as a witty, competent and compassionate MD. I don’t doubt them. An ill-fated remark does not a bad doctor make. We’re human, but we try not to end up in places that require us (or friends) to explain our character.
