New favorite blog: Wishful thinking in medical education

Wishful Thinking in Medical Education

I recently came upon this great blog by Dr. Anne Marie Cunningham, a general practitioner and Clinical Lecturer at Wales, UK. She has some really insightful posts about education, its future, and the use of new technologies. This blog has been in existence since 2008.

She is also extremely active on Twitter with over 2,000 followers (@amcunningham).
