The medical profession is slowly incorporating Twitter. If you have a Twitter account, here are some great Twitter accounts to follow:



  • Written by Dr. Brian Kloss (EM faculty at SUNY Upstate Medical University)
  • EM nuggets of wisdom, targeted for medical students, EM residents, and mid-level practitioners
  • Written by Dr. Rob Cooney (EM faculty at Conemaugh University) and of Better in Emergency Medicine blog fame.
  • Written in a question-answer format, this account provides great pearls targeted for EM residents.


Any other Twitter account suggestions?
