Polish Your Online Image, AAMC Advises Medical Students and Residents

How can you make sure future program directors find only the best “you” online? Follow these suggestions when using social media services such as Facebook, Twitter and blogs:

- Consider carefully what you’re posting
- Avoid posting patient stories
- Periodically search yourself
- Check the photos in which you’re “tagged”
- Define funny - Humor can be hard to interpret
- Choose your friends carefully
- Restrict your privacy settings
