Katie Clark is originally from Colorado and currently lives in Utah with her husband and son. She writes primarily for Smart Phone Health Care, but contributes to several Health Care Scene blogs, including EMR Thoughts, EMR and EHR, and EMR and HIPAA. She enjoys learning about Health IT and mHealth, and finding ways to improve her own health along the way.

The theme for today’s chat was “The Next Generation of Doctors.” When I read this, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It definitely sounded like an interesting topic, and it proved to be one. Here are the questions that were asked, and some of my favorite responses:

Topic One: Who are the emerging leaders you admire for their ideas in shaping the future of medicine? Why? Share resources!




Topic Two: Do you think new ways of learning will attract different types of personalities to the field of medicine?



Topic Three: How can the next generation of doctors learn from patients who are active through social media?




Topic Four: What does the next generation of doctors think of Quantified Self? How will the role of hte docotr change because of #OS?


Topic Five: What is your big idea or dream for the future of medicine.
