A medical student's perspective on professionalism on the web

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.
